A little girl had a touching moment with Duchess Kate Middleton when the real-life princess stopped by a rural farm for a visit.
Duchess Kate and Prince William visited Deepdale Hall Farm in Cumbria to meet the Brown family, who have been farming there for decades, according to Kensington Palace.
That’s when the Duchess had a moment to speak with the Brown’s two adorable daughters, age three and five.
In a video of the sweet interaction, the children’s father said to the younger girl, “It’s a princess. You love princesses!” He then told Duchess Kate:
“She wanted to know if you were going to be wearing your Princess Elsa dress.”
Duchess Kate quickly made an excuse for not donning her best princess dress. She told the little girl that she dressed down because they were visiting a farm:
“I know. I’m sorry. I came in my trousers and my coat because I’m going to see some of your sheep.”
The royal also complimented the little girls on their braids and admitted that she wasn’t very good at braiding Princess Charlotte’s hair.
Kensington Palace shared photos from the visit that showed the duchess sheering a sheep and helping with some light farm work.
The caption stated that the royals visited to “discuss some of the key challenges farmers are facing — including rural isolation, Brexit, and support payments.”

At Deepdale Hall Farm in Cumbria, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met the Brown familly, who have been farming in the valley near Lake Ullswater since the 1950s. Farming and agriculture has a special place in the #LakeDistrict National Park, where farmers have worked centuries on some of the most challenging land in the country. There are three generations living on Deepdale Hall Farm: Chris, his son Jimmy, Jimmy’s wife Robyn, and their four children. Chris and Jimmy are proud of their hill-farming heritage and are keen to carry on farming in a traditional way. The Duke and Duchess joined the Brown family, local farmers, and members of the Farmer Network to discuss some of the key challenges farmers are facing — including rural isolation, Brexit, and support payments. Following the discussion, The Duke and Duchess spent time on the farm with the family tending to their flock of Herdwick and Swaledale sheep, joining them for sheep shearing, herding and dry stone walling. @CumbriaCC #Cumbria #Ullswater
