The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed how Prince George has celebrated Shrove Tuesday during a charity engagement today.

Kate was opening a new “home away from home” accommodation at the Ronald McDonald House for families of poorly children being treated at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

The Duchess was greeting family members inhabiting the 59-bedroom house and chatted with children making pancakes in the kitchen area, including four-year-old James Wheeler — whose brother Lewis is in intensive care after being delivered 23 weeks early.

James asked Kate where Prince George was, to which she replied (via Hello! magazine): “George? I should have brought him. He’s at his Montessori nursery today making pancakes.”

When James continued coloring-in, he warned Kate about a thunder storm brewing, and the Duchess laughed: “Yes I know all about those. George likes storms too!”

James and Lewis’ mother Rebecca Bridges-Wheeler spoke at length to Kate about her son’s traumatic early birth, and told the publication that the Duchess exuded sympathy and was very “down-to-earth” and “warm”.

“My waters broke so I was an in-patient for five days to try and keep him in for as long as possible but he decided to come out at 23 weeks,” Rebecca said.

“I got a bit emotional talking to Kate. It sometimes just rises up. She stopped talking and let me compose myself. You could see the sympathy in her eyes.

“She was so warm and down-to-earth. She seemed very kind-hearted and easy to talk to. She’s also incredibly beautiful as well!”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are preparing to move to London permanently with children George and Princess Charlotte as they prepare to enroll Prince in a prep school in the capital.
