Kate Middleton delighted a group of school students during a recent visit to a London museum. As the patron of the parent institution, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the opening of the refurbished Young V&A Museum in South London. During her interaction with the children, she shared some insights into her own family life.

Princess Charlotte, at the age of 8, holds the distinction of being the second child and only daughter of Kate Middleton and Prince William. Born in 2015, she has progressively made her presence known at Royal engagements in recent months, gracing several notable ceremonies, including the funeral of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and the coronation of her grandfather, King Charles III.

The endearing moment captured the hearts of viewers, receiving more than 77,000 likes and attracting 300 comments.

In a light-hearted moment, one curious student asked the Duchess about her age. With a mischievous whisper, Kate humorously responded, "I'm 41. But don't tell anyone!" During her visit to the museum, Kate Middleton also took the opportunity to emphasise her role as the institution's patron.

Amidst the engaging conversation, Kate revealed that her daughter, Princess Charlotte, would be entering Year Four (equivalent to third grade) in the upcoming academic year. When one student asked if she was Charlotte's mother, the Duchess replied playfully, confirming her maternal role and expressing her love for her children.
