Kate Middleton's more recent project has proved her 'Children's Princess' title as the Duchess of Cambridge has agreed to read a bedtime story on the BBC children's channel Cbeebies.


CBeebies' Bedtime Stories is a highly commended segment of a children's television show in the UK. In this adorable program, celebrities will read sweet bedtime stories for the young viewers who watch the TV show before their bedtime. 

The show is a delight for both children and parents, and many mothers have loved watching the likes of Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, and Chris Evans send their little ones off to dreamland.

It has now been announced, that the show will also be getting a royal treatment as Kate Middleton has already filmed her reading of a bedtime story at Kensington Palace and it is set to air this weekend.

CBeebies announced on Twitter, "Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, is to read for #CBeebiesBedtimeStories to mark Children’s Mental Health Week The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson & @paulhoward20 is at 6.50pm on 13th Feb then @BBCiPlayer."

Fans have been delighted by this announcement and many have taken to social media to share their excitement. "Wow, how exciting. I'll be watching this even if my children won't...they're 14, 15 and 22 years old now! We read this book to them when they were little and we still have it," said one fan. 

Others took the opportunity to call the Duchess the 'Children's Princess.' 

"Fabulous news!!!! Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is the Children's Princess!!!! #DuchessofCambridge," said one fan. "Wow, look at this!!!! CBeebies and #DuchessofCambridge together. This is why she’s THE children’s princess #KateAt40 #catherineat40," said another.

Last year, Kate Middleton's fans give her a new nickname inspired by Princess Diana and dubbed her 'the Children's Princess.' In Princess Diana's life, she was often referred to as 'the People's Princess,' so the inspiration for the Duchess of Cambridge's unofficial title has clear links to her late mother-in-law.

Fans can expect to see the Duchess of Cambridge on CBeebies on Sunday, February 13, at 6.50pm GMT.
