A treat for the little ones! Duchess Kate and Prince William received adorable gifts for their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, during the second day of their tour of Canada on Sunday, September 25.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 34, spent time at a charity in downtown Vancouver that supports vulnerable mothers and pregnant women battling with addiction and other issues.
Once there, they were given customized red and black vests for their tykes during a “vest-making” session for teddy bears. The vests were personalized with labels that read “George” and “Charlotte.”
“Thank you so much. Charlotte will love this, she loves her teddies,” the Duchess said.
Prince William chimed in: “George too, he’s a big fan, thank you so much. You’re all such well behaved children. I’m so impressed!”
Soon after, a mother came bustling in a tad late, revealing that she had to change her baby’s diaper. Prince William joked that he could relate. “Sorry, we just had a little accident to clear up before meeting you,” she said. Prince William laughed: “No worries at all, we know all about that.”
The visit had its somber moments as well. At one point, Prince William appeared visibly moved as Ron Abrahams, a physician, spoke about his late mother, Princess Diana.
“It’s wonderful to have you here after all the work your mother did in this field. It’s like full circle for us with your family,” Abrahams said. Prince William smiled and was “really quite chuffed,” an onlooker tells Us Weekly.
The couple then listened thoughtfully to the women’s hardships and how they’ve turned their lives around for the better. “You should be so proud,” Prince William told one mom.
The Duchess appeared touched by the women, and addressed a group of mothers during a roundtable discussion. “What you’re all carrying as mothers and what you’ve all been through, is a huge, huge burden and just being able to come here and share your stories with us and each other is amazing,” she said. “You’re giving your children an amazing chance by coming here and being able to talk about your stories.”
Earlier this month, Us exclusively revealed that the Duke and Duchess “want a third baby soon.” In the meantime, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 16 months, are “living as normal lives as possible,” thanks in large part to their parents’ efforts.
“I think they both would have been overwhelmed at the thought of a third child a year ago, but now it sounds perfect,” a friend of the pair told Us. “They’ve both always wanted a big family.”
