Mom of three Kate Middleton is there when a lonely child needs help. During a train ride without any bodyguards, she keeps a boy company. However, the eight-year-old did not know that a duchess was sitting next to him.
Birmingham – Anyone who meets Kate Middleton (40) when she is not surrounded by cameras can count herself lucky. Very rarely is the Duchess of Cambridge out without security guards or other family members. Private fan encounters are therefore something very special.
Unexpected neighbor: Father and son meet Kate Middleton on the train
Matthew Syed owes his meeting with Prince William’s (40) wife a train journey. As the British journalist reveals in his column for The Times, he accompanied his son to the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, which Kate Middleton also attended. While husband William and daughter Charlotte (8) arrived by helicopter, Kate decided to take the train – to the delight of Syed, who promptly shared his surprising conversation with her with the public.
As the father of the family was using the toilet on the train, he heard his son waiting outside the door being approached by a woman who asked if he was alone and then “chatted happily with him”. Syed didn’t realize it was Kate until he left the toilet. “I came out to thank her – and then almost fell over. It was Kate! “, the journalist described his astonishment in a tweet.
“Down to earth and nice”: Kate Middleton conquers the hearts of fans again
Incidentally, Matthew Syed’s son did not recognize his famous interlocutor, the woman was “very nice”, the eight-year-old later confided to his father. Twitter users couldn’t get enough of the royal anecdote, emphasizing that the meeting “shows how down to earth and kind Kate is.”
Kate’s good mood and relaxed demeanor is certainly related to her recent dream vacation. William and Kate are said to have spent a summer break of several weeks on the private island of Tresco with their children. Sources used: thetimes.co.uk, twitter.com/matthewsyed
