Andy Schleck’s son, a three year old boy was one of the few well wishers who lined up to wish The Duchess of Cambridge when she visited Luxembourg this week.
The little boy was holding a little posy of flowers, but when he was in front of the Duchess he was overcome with tears and felt bashful. Kate had been there to be part of the cycling themed festival that was held in Place de Clairefontaine. The boy being the son of a legendary cyclist was one of the privileged, well wishers who could wish the royal lady with a hand bouquet. However the pressure of meeting royalty definitely overwhelmed him as was evident from his reaction.
Jil Schleck, his mother, later recounted how Kate consoled the little boy who felt shy and burrowed his head in his mother’s shoulders. Kate is a mother, was patient and endearing to the little boy.
