Mr Hurley recalled his conversation with Kate and said how his eldest son Prince George was ‘realizing now how important his great-grandmother was and what was going on’.

But four-year-old Louis is asking if the family’s summer trip to Balmoral Castle will still happen as he remembers them.

‘ The little girl is now asking the question, “Do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral and stuff like that, because she’s not going there?” Mr. Hurley said.

Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96 on 8 September at her beloved palace in Balmoral, Scotland. His funeral is scheduled for September 19, where Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be in attendance.

Last week an Australian expert described the best way to talk to their children about the Queen’s death, revealing that parents should be ‘honest’ and ‘show their feelings’ when breaking the news.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Margaret Rice, curator good greek websiteSaid it was ‘normal’ for children to have ‘a lot of questions’ about the royal’s passing and it is best for parents to be ‘as simple and honest as possible’ when explaining what has happened.

‘Children experience grief and loss from a very young age,’ she explained.

‘They’ll want to talk about it a lot, and they may repeat the question, you think you’ve answered the questions about it, but it comes back the other way again, and that’s normal.

“If they’re too young, they don’t fully understand the finite nature of death, they don’t process it like adults,” she said.

Sydney-based Margaret also said that it is common for a young child to ‘ask a lot of questions’ if their own great-grandparent or grandparent dies – but that each child will act differently.

‘Another child of the same age in the same family may react completely differently,’ she said.

‘They are all different, if your child wants to talk about it, meet them where they are, be patient as they ask questions’.

He added that things will ‘slowly change’ as children grow up, but that curiosity is normal at any age.

“If you yourself are unhappy with it, don’t feel like you have to pretend not to be sad,” he said.

Similarly, don’t pretend to be sad if you’re not.

‘Many people around the world will feel like they have lost a grandmother who lives overseas.

‘It’s important to be honest with your children about your feelings, no matter what the age of the child.

The easiest way to say ‘she died’ is to use the words ‘death and die’ and be direct.

Margaret said the monarch’s death is an ‘important occasion’ to ‘introduce children to the idea of ​​death’, especially if they have not already experienced the loss of someone in their family.

‘Use a very simple description, say ‘the person has stopped breathing,'” he said.

‘If you are religious, you may want to bring in concepts after life as you see fit. You could say that they returned to God.

‘But questions about heaven can confuse children more. Children may think that heaven is very crowded and all these dead bodies in heaven have nightmares.’

Margaret said that even if you introduce the idea of ​​heaven, you still need to explain what death is ‘in a technical sense’.

‘You don’t have to work hard on the thing and make it ugly. You can draw parallels when pets die.

‘Our understanding of what children understand with things like death changes all the time, but in general, the younger they are the less they understand’

‘If they are young, you can use picture books and story books to help explain.’

A ‘tearful’ Kate shared Prince Louis’s sweet tribute to her great-grandmother with the public during a 40-minute walkout with the Fab Four at Windsor Castle shortly after the Queen’s death.

'The little one is now asking questions like,

‘The little girl is now asking the question, ‘Do you think we can still play these games when we go to Balmoral and stuff like that, because she’s not going there?'” said Mr. Hurley.

She said Kate told the kids: ‘Louis said at least Granny is with Grandpa now.’

Ms Rano said Kate was recovering while she was talking to the children.

The West London well wisher also expressed his surprise seeing the two brothers and their wives together, adding: ‘It was really cool.’

His mother Baljinder Rano, 64, said it was ‘fantastic’, adding: ‘It was so beautiful to watch.’

She said: ‘I was feeling very emotional and I thought the Queen would love it. I just hope that in future they remain like this and brothers come together, and family.’
