According to Elaine Gee, a teacher from Wokingham who spoke to the royal couple during the walkabout, they discussed this upheaval, and how it could affect children.
Elaine told People she told Prince William that she works at a school, and it’s been ‘a strange year celebrating the Jubilee and now it’s all changed and we are talking about this’.
She added: ‘William spoke about George, Charlotte and Louis, saying that they were trying to keep some sense of continuity for them at school and keep things as normal as possible.’
When speaking briefly with the Princess of Wales, Elaine said she told the royal how impressed she was with how she has conducted herself amid this very difficult period of mourning.

Elaine said: ‘Catherine thanked me, and she said that all the nation were feeling it.
‘They were both very kind and gentle and genuine. It was very special – definitely a moment I will always treasure.’
The conversation took place during a 40-minute walkabout in Windsor on Saturday evening.
As well as being attended by the newly appointed Prince and Princess of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also joined the engagement last week, meeting and chatting with many of the well-wishers who had come to pay their respects.
Among them were Sanj Chowdhri who told People that he was ‘surprised but delighted’ to have the opportunity to meet the Duchess of Sussex face-to-face.
He added that she was ‘very gracious’, and shook his hand and said it was nice of them to come and support the family.
Meanwhile, his wife Minal Chowdhri said it was ‘surreal’, and that they hadn’t expected to meet the royal.

Elsewhere, it was reported the Prince and Princess of Wales are expected to move to Windsor Castle but will postpone the relocation to prevent their children’s lives from facing more upheaval.
Kate and William told courtiers they hope to give their children time to settle in school before having to deal with moving house again, The Telegraph reported.
A source told the newspaper: ‘They won’t be starting from scratch when it comes to decisions on what happens to all of the royal properties because there have been lots of conversations about that over the years, but things can change when family dynamics are taken into account and they will want as little disruption to their children’s lives as possible right now.
It comes as Kate and Prince William’s children adopted new titles after their grandfather ascended the throne.

King Charles III, 73, announced in his first public address to the nation that he has bestowed the Prince and Princess of Wales titles upon Prince William and Kate Middleton.
This means that while their parents take on this new title, their three children will now be known as Prince George of Wales, Princess Charlotte of Wales and Prince Louis of Wales.
Prince William and Prince Harry were known as William and Harry of Wales before they were given their own titles.

The King said: ‘Today, I am proud to create [William] Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty.
‘With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where vital help can be given.’
As Kate and William’s children, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four, will now be known as Princes and Princess of Wales until they get their own personal titles.
