This is who Kate had in tears and why

On Jan. 15, Kate and Prince William visited the city of Bradford, which is located in West Yorkshire, England. It was there that the duchess actually made a fan burst into tears.

The Sun noted that Kate greeted a number of supporters and schoolchildren gathered outside Bradford City Hall to catch a glimpse of the duke and duchess. William’s wife stopped to hug and young fan named Josh and when she did that a female with him began sobbing.

According to The Express, the woman who was standing out in the cold with Josh is his mother, Sue. Kate chatted with them for a few moments and told Josh that her son, Prince George, “would love your coat, he loves camouflage.”

The duchess closed out their conversation telling them “lovely to meet you” before she moved down the line to greet more people in the crowd.
