'Are you a prince?': Kate Middleton's reply during interaction with school kids goes viral
The Duchess of Cambridge also asked a little girl, “Are you? Are you a Princess?” during her trip to Orkney, Scotland with Prince William
Kate Middleton along with Prince William visited Orkney, Scotland, on Tuesday, May 25. There the royal couple also met a group of school children, who were gathered outside the European Marine Energy Centre. And, when one little kid innocently asked the Duchess of Cambridge, “Are you a Prince?” she sweetly responded as she bent down, “I'm not a Prince. I'm the Duchess of Cambridge. Lots of people call me Catherine.”
In the group of kids, when another girl said, “She's a Princess!” Kate asked her, “Are you? Are you a Princess?” before adding, “Aww, you look like one in your beautiful pink coat.” The 39-year-old also stated: “It's very nice to meet you all. Have you been having a look at all the boats? It's very cool isn't it?”

Kate Middleton was NOT prepared for royal life just like Meghan Markle: 'There's no school for princesses'
The parents of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis were in Orkney to know about the archipelago’s push for carbon zero and hydrogen power. They also went on a boat ride to visit the world's largest tidal energy turbine -- the 2MW 'O2'. For the engagement, Kate wore her Seeland Woodcock Advanced Jacket, blue jeans, and brown ankle boots. William was also seen sporting a casual look in a pair of jeans and a jacket.
Earlier on Tuesday, the pair’s first stop was the Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall. They went there to open it formally. The hospital started taking in patients from 2019 after replacing the old hospital, which had served the community for ninety years. For the visit, Kate donned caramel-toned trousers, which she teamed with Massimo Dutti’s tan coat. The mother-of-three kept her hair half-open while wearing fresh, flawless, and glowing makeup. To complete her look, Kate also carried a beautiful Strathearn tartan scarf, and a pair of beautiful earrings by Hamilton & Inches -- a Scottish brand.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s recent trip came almost a month after they went to Manor Farm in Little Stainton, Durham, on April 27 in Darlington, England, where they were clicked interacting with a family of farmers. During that engagement, Kate looked carefree as well as elegant in a pair of skinny jeans, a Fairisle jumper by Brora, a khaki jacket, and a pair of brown, knee-high boots by Penelope Chilvers which she first wore years ago in the early 2000s.
At the time also, she kept her look natural while wearing Orelia earrings, which cost only $20 (£15) and wore her hair in a lightly curled style with fresh glowing skin. They toured Manor Farm near Darlington with its owners Clare Wise and Stewart Chapman. They also spent their time with the farmer’s kids and their cattle and took a look at their cattle, calving, and lambing sheds.
The late April engagement was the first of Kate and William outside London since December 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and came a few days after the death of Prince Philip. The Duke of Edinburgh breathed his last on April 9. He was 99 when he died after struggling with deteriorating health for the past few weeks. “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss,” the royal family said in a statement at the time.
