Oops! Kate Middleton was photobombed by a cheeky toddler during her visit to a Christmas farm on Wednesday. The hilarious photo features three-year-old Freddie popping his head into the camera frame and sticking out his tongue in front of the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate joined preschoolers at Peterley Manor Farm on December 4 to mark her new role as Royal Patron of Family Action. After over 65 years, Queen Elizabeth passed her patronage to the Duchess of Cambridge. During the festive engagement on Wednesday, Princess Charlotte’s mom took part in Christmas activities with families and children supported by Family Action.
At the farm, Kate revealed that her one-year-old son Prince Louis is already talking. According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess laughed at a young boy who held up his hand to get her attention, saying: "Me, me." Kate reportedly stroked his cheek and said: "You remind me of my little Louis, he keeps saying 'Me, me, me,' and he wants to come everywhere with me."
The maternal royal was in her element interacting with the young children. “Does anyone like this one?” the Duchess asked as she helped them pick out Christmas trees for Family Action preschools. After scouting out the perfect tree, Kate enjoyed hot chocolate with the children. When one little girl asked the Duchess if she’d like a marshmallow, the royal replied, "I’d love one, I’m going to have a pink one, delicious."
While the Duchess is known for her glossy tresses, Kate admired eight-year-old Aleigha Law's crimped hair. “How do you get it all wavy like that?" Kate asked. Aleigha told the Duchess that she slept with plaits in her hair overnight, to which the royal said: "I might try that tonight, I hope my hair turns out like yours."
Aside from picking out trees, Kate also got involved with making holiday decorations and eco-friendly reindeer food. When the youngsters finished their letters to Father Christmas, Prince George's mom helped them mail the envelopes to the North Pole. The 37-year-old Duchess looked festive for the outing wearing her red Perfect Moment ski jacket, a green ribbed sweater, green socks, blue jeans and boots. Kate's new patronage, Family Action, works with vulnerable or disadvantaged children and families through both local and national services, helping families who are facing difficult issues such as financial hardship, mental health and emotional wellbeing, social isolation, parenting challenges, domestic abuse, and substance misuse.
