Together with her husband Prince William, Kate Middleton visited people at the Newmarket Racecourse for the Cambridgeshire County Day on Thursday and noticed a baby. The 40-year-old prince approached the four-month-old Norah to say hello and could not help but cuddle her.
According to Hello!, Princess Kate requested to hold Norah’s gorgeous baby and said, “I love babies,” to Marianne Provoost, Norah’s mother. Provoost joyfully gave her child to the royal mother of three after traveling from the Netherlands to witness the races.
“Enjoy your day and enjoy your children,” Provoost remarked as Kate handed Norah back to her mother. Earlier in the visit, Kate smiled and greeted a child sporting a bucket hat, displaying her passion for infants. Prince William, who just turned 40, watched with tenderness as his wife gushed over the infants.
Being around infants and young children presents a risk to Kate’s job. She has previously acknowledged experiencing “broody” feelings after meeting small children. Could you please get my wife out of here before she becomes pregnant? Last month, William made fun of the group’s visit to a Scottish classroom where pupils learned about empathy by seeing an infant named Saul, who served as their “little teacher.”
Kate met with parents and their infants when visiting the University of Copenhagen on the first day of her solo royal tour to Denmark back in February. “It gives me the shivers. William is constantly concerned that I will encounter infants. I say, “Let’s have another one,” when I get home “Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, are the children of William and Kate.
During their tour to Milton’s East Anglia Children’s Hospice, the Princess also got to know a lot of kids. Kate offered to get her hand painted while she interacted with the children so that her hand print might be printed on a canvas. Willow Bamber, 8, assisted by painting her hand with a brush. Later, the Princess told the young girl, “Don’t be shy,” and urged her to paint in confidence.
Bamber assisted the queen in placing her hand on the canvas while beaming from ear to ear and receiving encouragement from the audience. Prince William and Kate visited the hospice, which Princess Diana founded on August 1st, 1989, according to PEOPLE. Through the nonprofit EACH, the pair also got to know children, teenagers, and families who utilize services. Since 2012, Kate has supported EACH as a royal sponsor.
