  • The Duchess of Cambridge has shared some adorable new info about her son, Prince George.

    Speaking during a charity engagement at Ronald McDonald House on Shrove Tuesday, Kate told the assembled group all about the 3-year-old’s plans for for Pancake Day, and also revealed that he had a new weather-related interest.

    Four-year-old James Wheeler, who was at the facility whilst his newborn brother is in intensive care, asked the Duchess where George was, to which she replied: ‘George? I should have brought him. He’s at his Montessori nursery today making pancakes.’

    When James continued to chat to Kate, warning her about an incoming thunderstorm, she added: ‘Yes I know all about those. George likes storms too!’

    The Ronald McDonald house acts as ‘home away from home’ accommodation for families of poorly children being treated at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

    During the visit, Kate chatted to several parents of seriously ill children, telling one family that having a baby is always ‘life-changing’.

    ‘For any family having a baby is a life-changing moment, but for you having to go through all that as well is extraordinary,’ she said to Dion Mifsud and Danielle Debono, whose eight-month-old daughter Mia has had both kidneys removed.

    Mia’s father Dion said that Kate and his daughter were ‘laughing and smiling together’, explaining ‘The Duchess also made it very easy for us to talk to her.’

    Rebecca Bridges-Wheeler, who is mum to James and his little brother Lewis, who was born 23 weeks early, said of her her conversation with the Duchess: ‘I got a bit emotional talking to Kate. It sometimes just rises up. She stopped talking and let me compose myself. You could see the sympathy in her eyes.’

    ‘She was so warm and down-to-earth. She seemed very kind-hearted and easy to talk to. She’s also incredibly beautiful as well!’
