Kate Middleton is photobombed by a cheeky toddler on a Christmas tree farm visit
KATE Middleton proved that even royalty can get photobombed when she met a cheeky toddler this week at a Christmas tree farm.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, could be seen meeting kids and staff at Peterley Manor Farm in Buckinghamshire when a playful youngster poked his head into shot.
Little Freddie Rusbridge, three, was snapped sticking his tongue out at the cameras while Kate took part in an elf workshop.
Kate went on to pretend to feed fake reindeer with Freddie and the other kids, and even helped pick Christmas trees for Family Action pre-schools, with the young tots putting ribbons on their favourite.
The duchess revealed a sweet detail to well-wishers on the day, that Prince Louis “wants to go everywhere with her”.
According to the Daily Mail’s Rebecca English, Kate told a young visitor that he reminded her of her youngest.
English tweeted: “Inside the farm’s Elves Enchanted Forest Kate laughed at one boy who held his hand up to get her attention, saying: ‘Me, me.’
“Kate stroked his cheek and said: ‘You remind me of my little Louis, he keeps saying: ‘Me, me, me and he wants to come everywhere with me.’ Sweet!”
The visit marked her taking on the Family Action patronage from the Queen, who had held it for more than 65 years after Queen Mary passed it onto her in 1953.
Kate did the engagement alone, with Prince William on a royal visit to Oman and Kuwait.
Family Action was founded in 1869 to help struggling families get practical help and support.
Freddie’s mum Ann-Marie Walsh, 38, from Peterborough, told the Evening Standard: “I'm a single mum, and they (Family Action) helped steer me in the right direction.
“They have helped me find my way when I have been upset and helped me look after my children – it means my children are happy.”
Holding onto one little girl's hand at the event, she chatted to the kids before they decorated the chosen tree together in adorable scenes.
At the previously unannounced engagement, the duchess then went on to help youngsters in the farm's Elves Enchanted Forest, where they made eco-friendly reindeer food.
Kensington Palace said: "This new patronage aligns with Her Royal Highness’ longstanding work on the early years, and the importance of supporting children and families during this seminal period of their lives."
