Well, this video is royally adorable.
Kate Middleton shared a sweet moment with some young fans during their trip to Orkney Prince William on 25 May. While visiting Kirkwall Marina, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge came across a group of local kindergarten students. And a boy had a question for the 39-year-old king.
He pointed to Kate and asked, “Are you a prince?” Kate then responded to the child’s question by saying, “I’m not a prince, no.” A couple of children then asked if Kate was a princess, to which she responded with a laugh and a smile.
In addition to speaking to the children, William and Kate visited the European Marine Energy Center, where they learned about the organization’s role in tackling climate change and supporting the UK’s green recovery. The couple also saw the fuel cell and hydrogen storage trailers on Kirkwall Pier and then headed out to sea to learn more about the 2 MW O2, the world’s largest tidal power turbine. The work is in line with the goals of the William’s Earthshot Prize, which aims to support new initiatives that will help the planet over the next 10 years.
