Kate Middleton: 'VERY broody' Duchess delighted by adorable gesture from young fan

KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, received an adorable gesture from one royal fan while attending the King’s Cup regatta on Thursday.

Kate was greeted in an incredibly sweet manner by one young fan at the charity regatta last week. Sweet images show a girl with unicorn face paint giving the Duchess of Cambridge a bow after presenting her with a bouquet of roses. Kate seemed tickled by the cute gesture from the young fan, who appears to be around the same age as Princess Charlotte.

The exchange follows royal expert Katie Nicholl previously telling Entertainment Tonight that the Duchess is “very broody”.

She said: “William is over the moon that his brother is a dad. Kate is very broody. She loves to be around newborns.

“I hear that Kate has made herself available to Meghan if she needs advice if she needs any help.”

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have three children and since their eldest Prince George celebrated his sixth birthday last month there's been growing speculation as to whether they will have another.

Fans were sent into a frenzy after Kate was snapped resting her hand on her belly while chatting with family at Royal Ascot this year.

However, the Cambridges have confirmed no plans to have another child.

On Prince George’s sixth birthday bookmakers Coral slashed the odds on Kate announcing a pregnancy soon. The bookies make it 1/2 that Kate will make a pregnancy announcement before the year is out.

Coral spokeswoman Harry Aitkenhead said: “On Prince George’s sixth birthday there’s been plenty of talk about whether William and Kate will add to their family. We think a fourth baby is very likely and make it odds on that the Duchess of Cambridge announces she is expecting again by the end of this year.”

Meanwhile, Kate appeared to have her hands full with Princess Charlotte at the regatta last Thursday. The Princess stuck out her tongue to the crowd, before being ushered away by Kate.

Charlotte may have taken this cheeky habit after her uncle Prince Harry, who has been spotted countless time as a child sticking out his tongue to the crowd and photographers - even at official events such as Trooping the Colour.

The King’s Cup is a sailing regatta organised by Kensington Palace to raise awareness and funds for eight organisations supported by the Cambridges.

Kate and William raced each other, representing one charity each. William represented Child Bereavement UK and Kate The Royal Foundation’s Early Years programme.

While neither of the royals won, Prince William could get back at his wife after losing against her at another sailing race in Auckland in 2014, during their Australia tour.

Kate received the wooden spoon as she was disqualified on the second race and arrived last.

The successful event helped raise £1million for the eight charities represented in the race.

Kate and Prince William would like it to become an yearly event, as they stated on Instagram.

On their Instagram account, kensingtonroyal, they wrote: “Their Royal Highnesses hope that The King’s Cup will become an annual event, bringing greater awareness to the wider benefits of sport, whist also raising support and funds for the causes that The Duke and Duchess support.”
