According to Daily Mail, Kate had apologized to the little girl, Annabel, for "not wearing a pretty dress" during her royal visit to Wales.

Annabel's desire to see a princess spun from the fact that she loved fairy tales, especially Cinderella, and as such, had expected to see Kate in a Cinderella outfit.

The Instagram caption of the posts explained that the Royal Family has supported the RNLI for as long as can be remembered.

Although the Duchess appeared to have a good time with the children, she has debunked any rumor that she and her husband will be adding to their brood.

Hollywood Life claimed that Kate had revealed that William doesn't want any more children, during an interview with Hello Magazine. 

The Blast added that the mother-of-three appeared unbothered by the drama surrounding her brother-in-law, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle.

It will be recalled that Harry and Markle stepped away from royalty and their roles as senior members of the Royal Family in early January.
