Nothing like a Will and Kate sighting to start your morning off right! Commuters at a London tube station were surprised to see the popular royals as they stopped by the High Street Kensington station on Thursday to visit with volunteers handing out traditional red poppies for Remembrance Day.
The volunteers were raising money for war veterans on the national holiday commemorating casualties of war. The royals previously met with Royal British Legion staff members and supporters outside of their Kensington Palace apartment before taking a 5-minute charter bus ride to the station.
The visits were in support of the Legion’s effort to raise £1.6 million ($2.5 million) in a single day for charity.
Volunteers who were lucky enough to chat with the couple asked how they liked their new apartment and how 3-½-month-old Prince George was doing.
“It’s quite nice being in one place,” said Will of settling into their 21-room apartment in Kensington Palace.
And Kate responded to inquiries about George, who they left at home with the nanny, by saying, “he’s half asleep” to which William added, “he’s behaving himself this morning,”
Kate looked gorgeous and slim in an L.K. Bennett red coat as she chatted with those assembled at the station. She had also pinned two overlapping poppies onto the front of her jacket in support of the troops. While at the tube, William mused, “It’s very sociable,” but then countered “Although I suppose everyone’s got their earphones in.”
