Kate Middleton went on an official trip to Northern Ireland last week and along the way, she stopped to chat with a little girl who seemed enamored that she was talking to a real-life duchess. In an adorable moment that's now surfacing from the trip, the Duchess of Cambridge told her what she loves most about being a royal.
On Twitter, journalist Valentine Low—who captured the moment—shared that the exchange happened when Middleton and Prince William stopped in the town of Ballymena. Middleton heard that the little girl, whose name is Hannah Ritchie, was working on a biography of her for school. Being the class act she is, Middleton decided to answer a few questions to help out.
In the video Low captured, you can see Middleton telling Richie that she enjoys "meeting special kiddies like you. I meet lots of different people, it's really great. I love working with young people. Everyone's so brave and strong in some of the places we go meet."
Before she walked away, Middleton told Ritchie, "It's very nice to meet you…Good luck with your biography." We have a feeling Richie is going to nail this assignment.
The whole thing was incredibly sweet and capped off a two-day trip, in which Middleton also had some nice moments engaging in a little PDA with Prince William.
Since becoming a royal in 2011, Middleton has been a fixture in Kensington Palace for her grace, public service, and always-elegant fashion. But even though she's a duchess now, she's also still pretty down to earth: She's been known to drive herself around, and sources have reported that she usually prefers a laid-back approach to big occasions. She's even spoken candidly about the difficulties that come with being a mother.
Gotta love an off-the-cuff royal moment, especially when it's as sweet as this one was.
