Caught on camera: Kate Middleton 'fist-bumps' sick child in cute unscripted moment

A video of Kate Middleton breaking from script has over 150,000 views online

The Duchess of Cambridge has shown her personality in a new online clip.

During a visit to Shooting Star Children's Hospice on the 6th December, the new mother met several patients, even participating in music sessions and one-on-one chats with some of the parents.

During one meeting with Demi-Leigh Armstrong, the little girl reached out a fist to Kate who responded with a 'fist-bump' and a smile. Demi-Leight then gave Kate a big thumbs-up. (Starts at 1.35.)

The clip gained over 150,000 views on YouTube in less than three days and commenters have shown appreciation for a more natural Duchess with comments like "this is the most adorable thing I've seen all year" and "She's pretty awesome".
