Kate Middleton shared the sweet reflection on Thursday at Windsor Guildhall, where she and Prince William were meeting the hardworking individuals who helped to organize the Queen's committal service. The solemn ceremony, which took place at St. George's Chapel on Monday afternoon,  was the final stage of the Queen's state funeral before her burial beside Prince Philip at Windsor Castle

Speaking with the staff and volunteers at yesterday's event, the future King turned to his wife and asked, "In Scotland, how many rainbows turned up? You hardly ever see rainbows up there, but there were five." 

"Her Majesty was looking down on us," Kate replied.
