The Duchess of Cambridge often looks like she has stepped straight out of a fairy tale ...
But one young boy was left a tad confused during his meeting with Kate Middleton after he asked the royal mum if she was a prince.
The 39-year-old was asked the question during a visit to the island of Orkney in Scotland with her husband Prince William when she met with a group of nursery school students.
Excited to chat with the mum-of-three, the little boy called out to Middleton and asked: "Are you a prince?"
Taking it in her stride, the Duchess just shook her head and said: "I'm not a prince."
The boy then regrouped and asked: "Are you a princess?"
To which she smiled and said: "Yes, I am."
Prince or princess, the moment was so pure!
