Kate Middleton Shares a Funny Story About Princess Charlotte on Her Daughter's Birthday Eve
The world's attention may be on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and the imminent arrival of their first child, but that doesn't mean duties stop for the rest of the royal family. This morning, the Duchess of Cambridge opened the new Anna Freud Kantor Centre of Excellence in London.
According to Kensington Palace, "The new centre brings leading practitioners, researchers and young people together for the first time, to improve mental health services for children and families." Kate has been patron of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families since 2016, and her work with the organization highlights the Duchess's focus on both young families and mental health.
The Duchess of Cambridge meets with a student during her visit to the Pears Family School. The school is part of the Anna Freud Kantor centre of excellence in London, which Kate officially opened today.
During her visit today, the Duchess spent time meeting with students in the Pears Family School, which is part of the new property. Specifically, the school provides "short term placements for children with complex needs, with a view to re-integrating them back to a mainstream school."
According to Hello!, while speaking with a young girl named Narriyah at the school, Kate revealed that Princess Charlotte, who turns 4 tomorrow likes to play with slime, a sometimes sticky, always squishy substance which has recently become a popular toy for children.
"Charlotte, my daughter, she dropped hers on the floor and it was pink and ended and brown and covered in so much mud. It ends up all gooey, doesn't it?" Kate reportedly said.
Nataliah's grandmother found the conversation "quite funny."
"The Duchess was lovely with her," she said. "It was quite funny that they were talking about slime, of all things."
