The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have returned to the country where they first met for a royal tour this week.
Since arriving in Scotland earlier in the week, the couple have paid a visit to a variety of charitable organisations targeting issues such as homelessness, mental health, addiction, and sustainability – and even bumped into an old university friend while visiting St. Andrews yesterday.
But it was during a stop at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Stromness on Tuesday, where Kate had an adorable conversation with a school boy in the crowd. The duchess bent down to speak to a crowd of school children, when the young fan asked her: 'Are you a prince?'
And the duchess had the sweetest response, explaining: 'I'm not a Prince. I'm the Duchess of Cambridge. Lots of people call me Catherine.'
According to People, a little girl also shouted out, 'She's a princess!', with Kate responding, 'Are you? Are you a princess?'
The girl nodded, prompting Kate to respond, 'Aww, you look like one in your beautiful pink coat.'
It's unsurprising that the 39-year-old is so good with children, given that she has three of her own, but we love to see it nevertheless.
During the rest of the visit, the royal couple learned more about EMEC's leading role in tackling climate change and supporting the UK's green recovery, from marine renewable energy generation to green hydrogen production and distribution.
William and Kate visited the fuel cell and hydrogen storage trailers at Kirkwall Pier before heading out to sea to see the world's largest tidal energy turbine, the 2MW 'O2.'
