Kate Middleton was captured sharing a seriously lovely moment with a young royal fan when she and Prince William stepped out in Scarborough.

Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived in the seaside town of Scarborough on Thursday in order to show their support to The Street, an organization that helps support young people with mental health struggles, and The Rainbow Centre, which is helping families facing difficulties amid the cost of living crisis. 

The newly-appointed Princess of Wales seemingly took style tips from Meghan Markle in an immaculate color block outfit with retro roll-neck and Demellier handbag, looking chic as ever in head-to-toe camel. 

Wrapped up warm in the classic look, Princess Catherine met with hundreds of royal fans who gathered to meet the royal pair and shared a particularly wonderful moment with a child who was enjoying some crisps.
