Kate Middleton has revealed a sweet detail about her daughter Princess Charlotte as she chats to girl with the same name.

Kate Middleton chatted about her daughter Princess Charlotte during a chance meeting with a two-year-old girl who was also named Charlotte.

The Princess of Wales visited St Thomas Church in Swansea with her husband Prince William and during their visit as they chatted to locals and staff who support vulnerable people, Kate discovered a toddler had the same moniker as her daughter.

After being greeted by the tot, Charlotte Bunting, who was dressed in traditional Welsh outfit and handed her a posy of flowers, Kate struck up a conversation about her own daughter, who is also called Charlotte.

She told the youngster: “Your name is Charlotte?

"I have a Charlotte too."

The princess added a sweet detail about how her daughter was wearing her hair, "She's [Princess Charlotte's] got plaits today" she said.

And the Princess' small talk has come across as heartwarming to fans.

One fan said, “Ooh she is so caring to children.” Another fan added, “Kids love her! She's so sweet” and a third noted, “Little Charlotte is so adorable.”

The visit to the St Thomas Church community hub follows their engagement at Holyhead in Anglesey.

The church has been transformed into a place that provides vital services to hundreds of people in the area - including not-for-profit cafe and facilities for the homeless including food, showers and toilets.

The Prince and Princess of Wales have a personal family connection to the region as they raised their eldest son Prince George in Anglesey for the first few months of his life and Wales capital Cardiff was the first royal engagement he attended with his mother, Princess Diana, when he was aged eight.

Following their visit, Prince William and Kate tweeted, "Diolch Anglesey! What a welcome, it's great to be back."

The last time Kate and William attended Wales was during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in which they took along their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte for the visit to see rehearsals for the 70-year reign celebration.

But Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four were absent for their latest visit as they were back at their new school in Berkshire.
