John takes tea with William and Kate

Guess who John had a chat with yesterday ?

here is a clue …..

BBC News- ”The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited a bereavement centre to mark its one-year anniversary.

Prince William, who opened Child Bereavement UK’s Stratford centre in east London in 2015, has been the charity’s royal patron since 2009.

The charity supports parents who have lost children as well as helping children who are bereaved.

William and Kate were introduced to staff and volunteers, before meeting families who have used the service.

The duke made a rare public admission about his feelings following the death of his mother, Princess Diana, telling a grieving boy he was “very angry” when she died.

The duke was a teenager and his brother, Prince Harry, 12 when their mother was killed in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.

He spoke openly during his visit to the centre, where he and Kate sat down with families and made memory jars in honour of loved ones who had died.”

Yes ,John was there as he has received ( and still receives ) counselling and support from Child Bereavement UK . Along with another bereaved parent ,Emily , John sat and chatted to William and Kate .

This makes it sound dry ,but it wasn’t .It was lovely and emotional and he got to talk about Rosie , our sadness ,our pain ,our love, our support and to make sure she is spread a little bit more across the land , he gave each and everyone of them her Order of Service .

So maybe somewhere ,someplace ,people may be looking at her and listening to The Kings of Leon, The Lion King , David Grey and Lykke Li.

  1. That story was in our largest local daily and I thought of you and John when I read it – I’m now going back to see if I can spot him in the accompanying pic x

  2. The only photos I have seen are William and Kate with the children who had experienced bereavement .
    I don’t think John filled a jar with sand , just had the chat !
