Kate Middleton has revealed the first thing she's going to do when she's Queen - and it's great news for kids.

Kate Middleton has revealed her future plans as Queen after she was quizzed by school children and her response is set to delight parents and children alike.

The Princess of Wales is married to Prince William, who is second in line to the throne in the royal line of succession following on from King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

And whilst the time the pair will take the throne is yet to come, it hasn't stopped inquisitive youngsters from probing the future Queen on what she plans to do when she lands the top job.

Enjoying a picnic with children at Chelsea Flower Show, Kate was asked a question by Saron Fikremariam, 11, who said, "I asked her what's the first thing she is going to do when she becomes Queen and she said she is going to help kids."

The Princess did not go into detail about the exact ways in which she would help children but she has previously championed early childhood development and some topics new parents are keen to find out more about include baby sleep training, baby led weaning, and the healthy start scheme.

It comes after Kate was asked what it's like to be a Princess and fans were obsessed with her response as both Kate and Zara Tindall are helping to normalise 'mum guilt', carrying out public engagements while they have children.

Kate is mum to Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five and she also revealed a sweet insight into how her youngest spends his school days.

And with many parents wondering is there anything Kate Middleton can't do? during her royal engagement, it seems there is, as when Kate was asked for her autograph by one star struck pupil but she had to politely decline the request as it would break royal rules.

According to The Telegraph, Kate told them, "My name's Catherine. I'm not allowed to write my signature, it's just one of those rules."

And not wanting to disappoint, she instead left several drawings of a flower, a tree and one of a pond surrounded by some plants.
