On Wednesday, Kate, who is the Patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, stepped out to open the new Centre of Excellence at Rodney Street.
During the visit, Kate spent time meeting with students in the Pears Family School. While speaking with a young girl named Narriyah at the school, Kate revealed a new fact about her daughter Charlotte.
Apparently, Princess Charlotte likes to play with slime, a sometimes sticky, always squishy substance which has recently become a popular toy for children.
“Charlotte, my daughter, she dropped hers on the floor and it was pink and ended and brown and covered in so much mud. It ends up all gooey, doesn’t it?” Kate reportedly said.
Narriyah ‘s grandmother then said of the conversation afterwards: “The Duchess was lovely with her. It was quite funny that they were talking about slime, of all things.”
Charlotte’s brother George is also a big fan of slime. He was seen eyeing some up in a shop before Christmas last year.
Kate, George and Charlotte were spotted picking up some last minute essentials in The Range in King’s Lynn, which is just up the road from the Royal Family ‘s Sandringham Estate where they spend Christmas.
It’s been a busy week for Kate, who was out today to open the Anna Freud Centre’s new Kantor Centre of Excellence in London’s King’s Cross.
The centre brings together leading practitioners in neuroscience, mental health, social care, child development, research and education, alongside young people and their families.
For the occasion, she opted for a green Emilia Wickstead dress. She matched it with beige high heels and a matching clutch bag by Mulberry.
According to HELLO!, she also carried out two unannounced engagements on Tuesday. First, Kate visited Sayers Croft Wildlife Garden and Forest School at Paddington Recreation Ground. And later, at Kensington Palace she hosted a reception for the members of her Early Years Steering Group.
And on Monday, she and William celebrated their eight wedding anniversary. To mark the special occasion, the Queen granted the title of Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order (GCVO).
