Queen’s procession ”brought back memories”, says Prince William

Prince William told a mourner on Thursday (September 15) that the walk alongside Queen Elizabeth's coffin during her procession to Westminster Hall 'brought back memories.' William and his wife Kate travelled to the royal residence of Sandringham in eastern England to view floral tributes left there by members of the public. While speaking to well-wishers, William could be overheard saying 'I mean the walk was challenging, it brought back a few memories.'' William and Harry, and other senior royals joined a solemn procession accompanying Queen Elizabeth's coffin as the late monarch made her final journey from Buckingham Palace in a scene reminiscent of when, as boys 25 years ago, they followed the casket of their mother Princess Diana when it was taken on a similar procession through central London. It was also a symbolic show of unity as William, 40, now the Prince of Wales, and Harry, 37, the Duke of Sussex, are said to be barely be on speaking terms after a bitter falling out in the last couple of years.
