On Saturday May 22nd, the Duke of Cambridge opened how Scotland reminds him of his late mother. Princess Diana.
“Scotland is the source of some of my happiest memories, but also my saddest,” he said at the opening ceremony of the Church of Scotland General Assembly. “I was at Balmoral when I was told my mother had died. Still in shock, I found refuge in the Crathie Kirk service [church] That same morning, and in the dark days of mourning that followed, I found comfort and consolation in the Scottish nature. “
The Duke also stated that Scotland also has fond memories as it is the place where he met Kate Middleton.
As a result, the connection I feel with Scotland will go deep forever. And yet next to this painful memory is a great joy. Because I met Catherine for the first time here in Scotland 20 years ago. Needless to say, the city , where you meet your future wife, has a very special place in your heart. “
The couple, who celebrated their 10th anniversary last month, are proud parents of three children. Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6 and Prince Louis, 3.
