Kate Middleton has cemented her spot as one of our favourite royal mums by charming a group of school kids with an adorable snap of her family.
The 37-year-old mum-of-three was visiting Lavender Primary School in Enfield, as part of Children’s Mental Health Week, when she shared the one thing that ‘makes her feel happy’.
The Duchess of Cambridge took a photo of her family from her bag and showed the delighted children.
The snap was the same one the royals released as their Christmas card last year.
“I’ve got something. It’s not very big. Do you want to see it?” Kate asked the children.
“This is a photograph of my family.
“These are my children and this is my husband. And my family makes me feel happy. And we like playing outside together and spending lots of time together as a family. And that makes me feel very happy.”
Kate is a proud mum to five-year-old Prince George, three-year-old Princess Charlotte and nine-month-old Prince Louis.
Two weeks ago, the Duchess visited London charity Family Action, to launch a new national support line for families in need.
While she was there, she spoke about the struggles of parenthood, claiming there’s not much support once babies become toddlers.
“Everybody experiences the same struggle,” she told volunteers, according to People.
“You get a lot of support with the baby years… particularly in the early days up to the age of about one, but after that there isn’t a huge amount — lots of books to read.
Kate attended Lavender Primary School yesterday as patron for Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity.
The royal then joined Year 6 pupils for a food diary activity, which assesses the links between food choices, mood and feelings, and was greeted by the school’s choir in the playground.
“The Duchess of Cambridge met parents at Lavender Primary to hear their stories of the various parenting challenges they face and how they have managed to keep them and their children healthy. #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek (sic)”, Kensington Palace wrote on Twitter.
