Meghan handed nursery children’s ‘beautiful’ tribute during Windsor walkaround

Meghan Markle left a lasting impression during her Windsor walkabout after she received a "beautiful" tribute to the Queen from nursery children.

The mum-of-two was greeting mourners with Harry, William and Kate when she was given the handmade present from The Shooting Box Day Nursery in Kent.

During the touching conversation, the Duchess promised to leave the tribute at the gate following the Queen's passing last week.

Lyndsey Phillips, who works at the nursery in Sittingbourne, described Meghan as "lovely" following the sweet encounter, reports The Mirror.

Deputy manager Lyndsey, 35, commented: "We were originally there to place a handprinted wreath that the nursery children I work with made.

"One of the children wanted us to place it with the other tributes at the 'Queen's house' as he called it.

"We were so lucky to be able to hand it to Meghan who was so lovely, spending the time to find out about who made the wreath."

In the video, Meghan can be seen shaking hands and smiling at members of the public, before accepting the colourful paper wreath from Lyndsey's colleague, Hannah Carpenter.

She says: "Oh beautiful! Should I put that at the gate for you?", before nodding her head and responding: "Of course."

Meghan then looks down at the wreath and admires it, asking Hannah, "Aw, who are the handprints from?"

Hannah explains that the nursery children made it and Meghan responds: "That's beautiful, thank you. I'll make sure it gets placed today."

Lyndsey shared the footage on Instagram and captioned it: "Feel so lucky that we were able to be at Windsor Castle when Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry and Meghan were doing their surprise visit to take in all the wonderful flowers and tributes."

"Meghan was so kind and sweet," one person commented, while another agreed: "She always says the kindest things and really pays attention!"

"Love this, how lucky to be in the right place at the right time! What a story to be able to tell everyone," someone else said.

Lyndsey came up with the idea of creating a paper wreath to cheer up her class of 23 children, and help them "remember it in a nice way, as well as a sad way".

She arrived at Windsor on Saturday afternoon with Hannah, 28, to deliver it, and the pair managed to get near the front of the crowd.

"[The royals] were all taking the time to talk about the Queen, and Prince William was saying how George is struggling a bit to come to terms with it," Lyndsey explained.

"He said the Queen had an amazing summer in Balmoral."

Lyndsey added that the children's reactions were "amazing" and the class couldn't have been more excited when they walked through the doors on Monday.
