The Duchess of Cambridge was left gushing after meeting a royal fan’s cute baby during day two of her and Wills’ trip across the Irish sea.
She was filmed stopping to coo over five-month-old tot James Barr during a royal walkabout in front of huge crowds in Ballymena this afternoon
The mum-of-three gazed at the baby and told him “you’re a very sweet little boy” before being told by his dad Alan the baby is just five and a half month old.
“It makes me feel broody”
Kate then gushed “oh he’s so diddy” and admitted: “He’s gorgeous. It makes me feel broody.”
Alan cheekily asked “baby number four?” to which Kate then said: “I think William would be a little worried.”
The Duchess’ broodiness appeared to continue on the tour when she came across another sweet baby girl and said: “I love your cool coat. Charlotte loves pink.”
Kate and Wills had visited Ballymena to learn more about the work Cinemagic – a charity that uses film, TV and digital technologies to inspire and educate young people.
It was the first public engagement on the second and final day of their visit to Northern Ireland.
They started today with a private meeting with officers and staff from the Police Service of Northern Ireland at Hillsborough Castle, Co Down.
The pair had kicked off a range of high-energy engagements yesterday by playing football at Belfast’s Windsor Park before taking part in a canoe race in Co Fermanagh.
They then rounded the day off by pulling pints at a reception for young leaders at Belfast’s famous Empire music hall.
The announcement of Kate and Wills’ trip to Northern Ireland wasn’t announced until the morning of their arrival as a security precaution.
