The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, met fellow parents at the during a visit to a health centre in Camberwell, south London. Mothers and fathers there spoke with the royal, who shares Prince George, Princess Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Prince Louis with Prince William. One other parent Kate chatted with was Chloe Koroma, 22, who is helped by the voluntary home visiting programme Family Nurse Partnership (FNP).
Ms Koroma’s son Oliver, four, gave Kate some flowers when he arrived at the event, where she spoke about George.
Ms Koroma said: “It was lovely meeting the Duchess. She asked how old Oliver is and what football shirt he was wearing.
“She said children grow up so quickly and she can’t believe George is six already.”
The programme helps young mothers and those in the stages of their pregnancies.
Ms Koroma said off the service: “My nurse Debbie was a fantastic support throughout my pregnancy. She was always there for me and gave me lots of advice and guidance.
“I have biopolar and following the pregnancy I suffered from postnatal depression so I really appreciated her support. I no longer use the service but I’m still in touch with Debbie as she was a big part of my life.”
The Duchess’s comments come after George was pictured welcoming his little sister Charlotte to her first day at school two weeks ago.
It was on Monday revealed that George’s classmates at his £18k-a-year school had to be cleared by security personnel before being granted access to Kensington Palace for playdates with the little boy.
