Princess Kate Says Boston ‘Has Been So Friendly’ Despite NYT Report

The Princess of Wales said the people of Boston were “so friendly” during her visit with the Prince of Wales.

Kate Middleton made the comment about a solo walk at Harvard University after speaking with experts at the Center on the Developing Child.

It comes after a report from New York Times he documented the reactions of Bostonians to the royal couple’s visit and found them mostly indifferent.

The article quoted a woman as saying she “[doesn’t] care” about Prince William and Kate’s presence in his city, and another man said: “I said to my wife this morning, ‘I put on my pants the same way he does – why is he so special?’”

But the princess was undeterred as she waved to the crowds, shook hands and posed for selfies with numerous people during her stroll.

In a video posted by US journalist Rob Way, shared by Oliver Kingston, Kate stopped briefly to chat with a woman who claimed to study British history.

Kate tells them, “Honestly, I really appreciate everyone coming to say hello.”

The woman’s friend tells the princess what she’s studying, to which Kate appears pleasantly surprised and asks, “Is that you?”

Overwhelmed, the woman begins to cry and Kate leans forward with a smile and says: “Don’t cry!”

“Thanks for coming to say hello,” she continues. “It means so much. Everyone in Boston was so friendly… I hope we can help you in some way with your studies. Good luck with it.

The princess then continues to wave to others in the crowd.

During her walkabout, Kate also said goodbye to a woman who spent a thousand dollars (£870) on flights and a hotel to travel from Virginia to see the couple.

Allison Morgan, 37, told the PA news agency the chance to see and meet Kate was “worth every penny” and that the royal “thanked us for coming out.”

She said: “I’m a huge fan of royalty. My mother was a Diana fan and my grandmother a Queen fan. It’s a family tradition.

“I have a great love for them and I write and send postcards. I think Harry and Meghan could be more supportive of their brother and brother-in-law.”

William and Kate attended the glamorous Earthshot Prize awards ceremony on Friday night (December 2), along with a number of celebrities, environmental activists and activists, and innovators.

At the event, Kate wore a green off-the-shoulder dress by Solace London that she rented from clothing rental platform HURR. She accessorized her look with an emerald and diamond choker that belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
