Kate Middleton revealed her playful side on the third day of her and Prince William’s royal Indian tour by rolling up her sleeves and letting her creative juices flow. Sitting on the floor with children, the Duchess even joined the kids for an art session. SO sweet!
Kate Middleton, 34, showed a heartwarming display in India on April 12 as she joined a room full of children on the floor as they drew pictures. And if anyone knows how to speak the language of children, it’s Kate! Her royalty sat cross-legged as she sketched her own drawing, asking, “Shall I do a drawing for you?” Aw — it doesn’t get much more precious than that!
Sporting traditional Indian garb — complete with flower garlands and red tika dots — Kate and Prince William, 33, spent their morning in the company of children at the Salaam Baalak Trust in New Delhi. The charity organization rescues and supports children who arrive in the city alone, most likely living on the streets. But while these children come from shattered homes, Kate certainly acted as a bright light as she played with the kids and even drew a picture for one lucky little boy.
“Did you do this? It’s beautiful, well done. Shall I do a drawing for you?” Kate asked 12-year-old Shansad Abdul after being presented with his drawing. And just like that, the Duchess joined Shansad on the floor along with the other children as she sketched out a picture of her own. How cute is THAT?

This morning The Duke and Duchess visited the Salaam Baalak Trust in New Delhi, an NGO that works to rescue and support young children arriving in the city alone and living on the streets. Their Royal Highnesses visited the Trust's Contact Centre near the railway station, and one of the temporary shelters for boys nearby where they met some of children that live there #RoyalVisitIndia

Kate’s finished product featured a house that vaguely resembled the couple’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall. “She was a very good lady and very happy to sit and draw with me,” Shansad later told reporters. We just love that the Princess totally embraced these kids’ drawing activity and even shared her own creation with them.
Later in the day, Kate and Prince William had lunch with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Indian capital. To prepare, Kate made a quick change out of her £50 frock she wore with the children, and into a stunning lace gown costing £795. Talk about a busy day!
How sweet was Kate with these children, HollywoodLifers?
