WATCH: Adorable moment schoolchildren line up to give Kate Middleton a hug - after one little girl leads the charge
Form an orderly queue.
Kate Middleton (36) possesses the rare ability to keep royal watchers entertained with her every move, even during a day with two engagements across London. After visiting Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) on Wednesday, she traversed across town to see the work of the Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative (WJTI) at a primary school as part of her duties as patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC).
She changed from her red frilled coat by Boden into a more leisurely ensemble: a pair of tuxedo track pants by Monreal London pants, white track jacket by Clarice, which retails for €200 and Nike Air VaporMax runners.
And the results are just adorable. After spending time chatting and playing with children and teachers, she was dishing out high fives and handshakes until one little girl went in for a big bear hug and Kate happily obliged; after which, all the children patiently lined up for their own hug.
You can watch the sweet moment here:
Earlier in the day, she had some heartwarming exchanges with critically ill patients at GOSH, speaking with four-year-old Rafael Chana, who is awaiting a heart transplant, and began telling the royal about his love of olives.
"I love olives. Are they your favourite? What do you prefer, olives or sweeties?" He responded that olives topped his list.
"Olives over sweeties - amazing. I used to eat lots and lots of olives when I was little. They’re very good for you," she reponded. "What other things do you like eating? Do you like Pasta? Charlotte likes pasta too, with olives. Do you like pasta with olives?"
Rafael said: "I like olive nachos."
