On Thursday, Kate stepped out for a previously unannounced engagement to visit the Sunshine House Children and Young People's Health and Development Centre in Southwark, south London to highlight the work of the Family Nurse Partnership, which supports young mothers.
The Duchess told one mum that “children grow up so quickly” and said she “can’t believe that George is six already.” Prince George began Year 2 at Thomas’s Battersea earlier this month and his sister Princess Charlotte, four, has joined him at the school, starting in Reception.
Meanwhile, William revealed he’s a big fan of BBC series Killing Eve, as he opened an exhibition at BAFTA’s new venue in Piccadilly on Monday.
