Princess Kate shared an adorable moment with a little overwhelmed girl after giving her a big hug. Watch below:
The touching moment came shortly after Buckingham Palace issued the first public statement on behalf of Charles and Camilla since they were crowned as King and Queen.
A Palace spokesman said the King and Queen were 'deeply touched' by the nation’s celebration of their historic coronation.
“Their Majesties were deeply touched by the events of yesterday and profoundly grateful both to all those who helped to make it such a glorious occasion – and to the very many who turned out to show their support in such numbers in London and further afield,” he said.
And today (7 May) heir to the throne Prince William and the Princess of Wales surprised fans with a walkabout in Windsor while they thanked well-wishers for their support.
Ahead of Sunday’s star-studded coronation concert at Windsor Castle, the royal couple were seen shaking hands and chatting to young fans.
Pictures show William crouching down to chat to a boy and girl wearing golden crown, while telling people to 'enjoy the concert tonight'.
However, it's his other half who stole his thunder after she comforted a little girl who appeared overwhelmed with emotion to meet her.
Princess Kate gave the teary youngster - who was wearing a headband with union flag deely boppers and navy dress covered in patriotic motifs - a long hug as the girl burst into tears.
Later this evening, the King, Queen and royal family will join around 20,000 members of the public at the musical extravaganza to see performances by Take That, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
There will also be performances by Paloma Faith, Olly Murs, veteran rock guitarist Steve Winwood and Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls.
Classical acts including Andrea Bocelli, Welsh bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel and Chinese pianist Lang Lang will perform too.
Tens of thousands turned out in central London on Saturday to witness the coronation yesterday (6 May).
Charles and Camilla made their way through the streets in the Gold State Coach and took to the Palace balcony while wearing their glittering crowns.
More than 18 million people in the UK tuned in to watch the ceremony on TV, compared with 26.5 million for the late Queen’s funeral in September.
A Palace spokesman said: “Their Majesties were deeply touched by the events of yesterday and profoundly grateful both to all those who helped to make it such a glorious occasion – and to the very many who turned out to show their support in such numbers in London and further afield.”
