Kate Middleton Spills Prince George's Two Favorite Things, Duchess Consoles Moms Of Very Sick Kids
Royal toddler, Prince George, could be a budding chef or a future storm chaser. His mother, the Duchess of Cambridge who is more popularly known as Kate Middleton, revealed her son's two favorite things during a recent visit to a children's hospital.
Kate was asked by a 4-year-old boy at the charity facility Ronald McDonald Houses about Prince George and the Duchess answered that her son wasn't with her as he's at the Montessori nursery making pancakes. At that time, the public was celebrating Pancake Day and the young prince apparently took part by helping make breakfast, according to Vanity Fair.
The 4-year-old boy from the hospital then mentioned to the Duchess that a storm was coming. "Yes, I know all about those," she said. "George likes storms, too!"
The boy was at the hospital to visit his ailing baby brother at the intensive care. His mom, Rebecca, met and got to talk to the Duchess and admitted it was an emotional encounter.
"You could see the sympathy in her eyes," Rebecca said, per E! Online. "She was so warm and down-to-earth." The duchess also talked and consoled the mother of a baby boy born with half a heart and the family of another baby with failing kidneys, according to Babble.
Her Royal Highness has the chance to meet little Jack who was born with just half a heart. His mum and dad, who live in Glasgow, are able to stay at the "home away from home" while their baby receives specialist treatment. The new 59-bedroom facility also has lounge areas and kitchens, which enable families to come together in support whilst their little ones are ill. Ronald McDonald House charities run 14 houses around the UK and support over 7,000 families each year.

Meanwhile, the Duchess reportedly volunteered to be the nanny at her sister Pippa Middleton's wedding. Kids of friends and family are said to be invited to the big event and Kate will watch over them, according to Wedding and Wedding Flowers. Pippa's wedding to beau James Matthew will take place May 20 at the Middleton's residence.
In the fall, the Duchess and her family will begin a new chapter in their lives as they take up residence in Kensington after living in the country for almost four years. As she and husband Prince William are going to take in more royal duties under Queen Elizabeth II, Prince George will start preparatory school.
