The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in Bradford, Yorkshire, and were met by hundreds of adoring well-wishers outside City Hall.
Royal fans including dozens of school children cheered wildly as the couple arrived in the city, and William and Kate both grinned as they met their supporters, with Kate stopping to give one thrilled youngster who'd been waiting in the cold to meet them a warm hug.
The royals went on to visit a number of local charity organisations, and it was during a chat with a ladies creative crafts group at the Khidmat Centre that the Duchess admitted she'd made a mishap with her first-born, Prince George.
Kate chatted to the women, who'd crocheted and knitted bobble hats for the royal couple’s young children, and opened up about her own experiences with knitting, admitting that she'd messed up when George was just a baby.
"I tried knitting when I first had George. I tried to knit him a very special jumper, but I got half way down this pattern, and it looked terrible. So I gave up. It's such an amazing skill," the Telegraph & Argus reported.
Mum-of-three Kate also got involved with a session at the Centre supported by Better Start Bradford involving grandparents who have child-caring responsibilities for their grandchildren.
The Duchess scooped up 18-month-old Sorayah Ahmad and sang songs and played peek-a-boo with the tot, clearly in her element.
Locals praised the royal couple with the Bishop of Bradford Toby Howarth, who took part in the workshop with the royals, said: “It has gone really well, they’re so down to earth and created a space for us to raise our issues.
“There was a willingness to listen and engage with us.”
The Duke and Duchess' visit comes just two days after William joined the Queen, Prince Harry and Prince Charles for crisis talks at Sandringham.
The royal summit was held to sort out the next steps following the bombshell announcement by Harry and his wife Meghan Markle that they want to "step back" as senior royals.
Following the meeting, Queen Elizabeth released a statement saying the final decisions about her grandson’s future role in the royal family will be made in “coming days”.
