Yesterday was a busy one for Kate Middleton, as it saw her and Prince William reunite with Meghan and Harry for the first time all year, as part of the Commonwealth Day service.
The Duchess of Cambridge then later headed over to Buckingham Palace to host a reception celebrating the 25th birthday of Place2Be, a mental health charity that supports children and young people.
While at the event, Kate got chatting to some of the students from two local schools, who had banded together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to perform an original song for her, as part of the evening's festivities.
Posting about the event on their shared official Instagram account, @KensingtonRoyal, Kate captioned a short video of the night with:
'Happy 25th Birthday @_place2be — here’s to many more! The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron since 2013, hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the charity’s incredible work over the past 25 years.
'No child or young person should have to face mental health problems alone — and that has been the founding mission of Place2Be, whose teams across the UK have provided mental health services in schools.'
Speaking at this evening’s reception, The Duchess said: 'Having visited many of your schools, meeting hundreds of your wonderful staff, children and young people, it is heart-warming to see that the support you provide is so much more than just being there in a time of desperate need'.
During one conversation, as reported by HELLO!, it's thought that she wished two of the choir members a happy birthday, before joking that it ought to be her singing to them instead.
She then went on to share that the classic Happy Birthday tune is in fact 'one of [Prince] Louis's favourite songs'. Given that he's only a year old (he will be turning two next month), that's super sweet.
We bet Louis can't wait for his big day next month (his birthday is 23 April), when everybody will be singing his favourite song.
