Kate Middleton made a little girl’s day when she picked her from a crowd to pay tribute to the Queen with her Corgi toy this week.

As Kate and Prince William greeted well-wishers at Sandringham Thursday, the Princess of Wales went over to eight-year-old Elizabeth Sulkovska.

Howard Junior School head teacher Gregory Hill said, “Elizabeth was overwhelmed, she cried with joy at being chosen,” the Daily Mail reported.

“It was just a wonderful, amazing opportunity.”

He added, “The older generation obviously knew the Queen for longer, but young children that haven’t experienced the Queen for long on the throne still are greatly moved by her passing, and really want to do their best to celebrate her life and legacy and never forget her.”

“She said, ‘Where do you think we should lay the flowers?’ and I said, ‘We should put them there.’”
