Princess Kate met someone very special on Tuesday as she paid a visit to Oxford House Nursing Home in Slough.

The royal was introduced to 109-year-old resident Nora – and it turned out the two ladies had a lot in common! See their sweet exchange here...

Kate was told that Nora had celebrated her birthday on 7th January. "That's two days before mine," she remarked as she tenderly rested her hands on Nora's knee. "Fellow Capricorn!" she then added with a laugh.

The Princess then asked Nora what her favourite thing to eat is. After some prompting, the older lady replied that she it was kidneys and Brussel sprouts.
