How much of a bummer would it be to have your biggest role model coming to your town, but you miss her because of bad weather?? Oh, and you're 10 years old! Any guesses?
The answer is that it would be the biggest bummer of all time! And that's exactly what happened to Isabella Clarkson, who missed Kate Middleton's visit to her home town because Mother Nature was being a huge jerk!
Isabella decided to write Kate a letter, expressing how distraught she was over it! And guess what! Kate personally wrote her a letter in return, because she felt so bad about it!
Kate's helicopter was late because of thick fog, putting her an hour and a half behind, essentially letting down all the students after waiting in freezing weather for a glimpse of her. Isabella was only able to catch a glimpse of Kate's hand waving as her car passed!
Here's what Isabella said:
"I'd spent ages making a glittery banner to hold the night before, but I don't think she saw it. I wrote a letter to her afterwards saying how disappointed we all were not to get to meet her – and then we got a reply."
When Isabella's mom got the letter, she immediately drove it to her school, where the teacher read it out loud! Kate said she was very touched and even included a photo as a momento — which Isabella plans to frame alongside the letter!
We LOVE this! Kate is such a sweetheart, and we're so happy she's able to do the little things alongside the grand gestures!
