You’re never too old to be a royals watcher.
Earlier this week, Prince William and Kate Middleton met 101-year-old Jane Johnson when they made an appearance at the Fire Station, an iconic building in Sunderland, England that recently underwent a nearly $5 million overhaul to be converted into an arts and culture center. According to INSIDER, representatives from Springboard, a Sunderland community-based charity, helped ensure that Johnson had a special moment with the royal couple.

Charlotte Hunter, Springboard’s Fundraising and Events Officer, was standing next to Johnson’s granddaughter when she met Kate and Will and tells INSIDER, “They both leaned in close and spoke slower and sweeter with soft tones so she could understand them, then were very attentive with her and spent time to make sure she knew she was a special guest.”
