Kate Middleton won over Brits as young as nine months old during a visit to the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in Kennington in south London on Tuesday.
The 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the facility looking radiant in a lavender-colored Gucci bow blouse and high-waisted pants by Jigsaw. She surprised us with her trouser ensemble, a break from her usual lineup of knee-length and midi dresses. Fans on social media hilariously pointed out the outfit is very similar to Lisa Vanderpump's go-to look.
Once inside, the mother of three crouched down on the floor and spent some time talking to the moms and entertaining one of the cuties with a toy.
She then took a seat for the center’s Together Time session, which aims to help parents understand their child’s cues and feel more confident in their parenting.
At one point, a little girl in a pink top adorably made her way to the duchess, assisted by the royal as she tripped, then plopped down taking a seat right next to her.
Middleton then got acquainted with a nine-month-old tot in yellow, getting animated as she talked with the visibly excited baby.

According to The Daily Mail, Middleton told the parents how Louis, her 10-month-old son with Prince William, has started to “bomb around” in his walker.
“Louis just wants to pull himself up all the time,' she reportedly said. 'He has got these little walkers and is bombing around in them.”
The visit aimed to educate the duchess about the support being offered to families with children who are four years old and younger through the Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP).
Support services include psychotherapy and speech and language assistance.
