During Kate and Prince William's visit to Bradford on Wednesday, the Duchess of Cambridge shared that 21-month-old Louis is doing more than just walking and talking.

The centers offer help to vulnerable members of the community, and the Cambridge's attended a session supported by Better Start Bradford. The organization offers more than 20 projects that support pregnant women and families with children four years old and younger.

While there, Prince William and Kate met with the locals who completed the "Older Yet Wiser" course on offer for grandparents.

One of the couples, Ian and Jo Broadbent, who take care of their 6-year-old granddaughter on a full-time basis, had a quick chat with Kate about their respective youngsters.

"Kate obviously has a great interest in early years development, she’s quite knowledgeable about it," Jo told HELLO! "I asked how her children were. Kate said Louis had started to tell her, 'Mummy, I'm balancing,' and she said it was really nice to see him turning into a little boy from being a baby. She's obviously very proud of her children."

Prince Louis, who turns two in April, is the youngest of Kate and Prince Williams three children. Having had a happy childhood herself, Kate wants the same for them.

Last year, Kate took Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis to explore the "Back to Nature" garden she designed for London's Chelsea Flower Show, and the kids had a blast playing in a stream and exploring a treehouse.

Kate spent much of her childhood outdoors, and she wants her children to experience and enjoy nature in the same way. While they might be heirs to the throne, they are first and foremost Kate's children, as a royal friend told PEOPLE:

“She wants to emulate her upbringing, living in the countryside with a close-knit family. She desperately wants that normality for her own kids.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton's trip to Bradford marked their first official outing for the new year and came shortly after Kate celebrated her 38th birthday.

The Duchess of Cambridge turned 38 on January 9, and she began her day of festivities with a church service at St. Mary Magdalene Church on Sandringham Estate. Later on, she hosted some of her closest friends, including Rose Hanbury and Lanigan O'Keeffe, at Anmer Hall.
