While at the event, the Duchess of Cambridge discussed the benefits of singing to babies with Hillary Clinton, who seemed to know a thing or two on the topic. The former Secretary of State reminisced about how she used to often sing to her daughter Chelsea when she was a child. So much so that there came a point when Chelsea would command her mother: “No sing, no sing!”
Earlier on Monday, Kate visited a children's center with New York City's first lady Chirlane McCray, while William had spent the day in Washington D.C., where he met with President Obama in the Oval Office and visited the World Bank for the International Corruption Hunters Alliance Conference.

The reception with the Clintons was to recognize various wildlife conservation organizations. Prince William has long been a supporter of wildlife conservation and has a passion for protecting animals, specifically ending wildlife poaching around the world.

Prince William created the charity United For Wildlife with his brother Prince Harry, in an effort to bring the world’s leading wildlife conservation charities together under a single banner.
“I believe passionately that we have a duty to prevent critically endangered species from being wiped out," Prince William has said. “If we get together, everywhere, we can preserve these animals so that they share our world with future generations. That’s what United for Wildlife is all about, and why I’m proud to be involved.”
