Kate Middleton likely didn't expect to meet a nose picker and a princess when she arrived in Grimsby today (Tuesday) -- but that's exactly who greeted the duchess. Photos obtained by Examiner.com show the pregnant duchess appearing to giggle, but un-phased as she spoke with little Ollie Axel who had his finger half way up his nose just inches away from her. Her short conversation with the three year old boy followed a more regal chat with Isobelle Laursen who was dressed as a princess and came with a bouquet of flowers to meet "Princess" Kate.
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge seemed to take extra time out during the visit to Grimsby, England to pay special attention to the town's youngest residents. The Duchess of Cambridge sharing special moments with at least half a dozen young children. At one point she had at least two bundles of flowers and a basket in her hand as she squatted down to eye level to speak with one little girl at the Humberside Fire and Rescue Peaks Lane Fire Station. Her motherly way with the kids was definitely noticed by the many adult admirers who came out to greet her. "You can tell she'll be a good mother," Paula Rampling is quoted as saying by Us Weekly. "She's not missed out one kid. She's lovely."
The stop at the fire station was just one of three engagements Kate Middleton attended today as part of her solo tour. Her day trip got off to a delayed start due to fog, but once the Duchess of Cambridge arrived by helicopter, the she was greeted by large crowds of townspeople.
