LONDON, UK: Kate Middleton had a very cute interaction with a three-year-old child when she visited Colham Manor Children's Centre on Wednesday, November 9, as a representative of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance — a UK-based non-profit organization of which the princess is a patron. The 40-year-old royal squatted to the height of the boy, named Akeem, so that she could speak with him comfortably.

As per reports, when the child asked for her name, the Princess of Wales answered, “My name is Catherine,” to which Akeem cutely said, “Okay”. The little one then expressed his attraction towards Kate’s poppy pin, which royal family members have been wearing every November “since 1921 to commemorate military members who have died in wars. The red flower is primarily associated with the UK and Commonwealth countries for Remembrance Day on November 11,” PEOPLE reported.

These are beautiful moments 🥰,” the third one tweeted and the fourth one said, “Why do I have tears running down my face? I absolutely adore absolutely everything about our Catherine 🥲🥰😍❤️🌹🇬🇧.”
