This is just too good! Greeting Prince William & Kate Middleton during their visit to Manchester, some clever school children sported hilarious masks of the Royal Family, which Kate and William TOTALLY got a kick out of! The creative stunt allowed them to stand out from the crowd and they even got to meet the couple! Pretty brilliant, right?
We wish we would have thought of this! As Prince William, 34, and Kate Middleton, 34, waved to fans in Manchester on Oct. 14, they actually saw miniature versions of THEMSELVES waving back! As it turned out, some super creative kids decided to construct masks of the Duke and Duchess — as well as other members of their high-profile family — and have a little fun with the two of them!

Kate and William seemed to absolutely love the kids’ disguises though — I mean, how could you not? — And Kate walked over to the enthusiastic children beaming! SO cute! She introduced herself to her little royal mini-me with William not far behind. They chatted with the group, who was from St. Phillips RC School in Salford, and they appeared to get along just swimmingly with their counterparts! Talk about the perfect way to get noticed in a crowd!
“Have you taken the day off school today?’ William asked one of the kids before he saw the mask of his face, according to People magazine. “Oh, is that really me?” he joked. “It’s quite creased, you look like you have been sitting on it!” But Kate and William weren’t the only Royals the children made masks out of. They also wore masks of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince Harry, and even Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall!
They were reportedly all giddy and excited as they posed for photos at the event. We don’t blame them either, WHAT a special day in Manchester! And in addition to meeting Kate and Prince William, it looks like the kids got a head start on Halloween this year too!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think these kids were super creative for welcoming William and Kate in these hilarious masks? Pretty great idea, right?
