Kate Middleton asks mom if she could hold her 4-month-old baby in adorable exchange

When she went over to say hello, the 40-year-old royal could not resist cuddling 4-month-old Norah.

While visiting locals around the Newmarket Racecourse at the Cambridgeshire County Day on Thursday, alongside her husband Prince William, Kate Middleton spotted a baby. When she went over to say hello, the 40-year-old royal could not resist cuddling 4-month-old Norah.

Princess Kate asked Norah's mother, Marianne Provoost, if she could hold her adorable baby, remarking, "I love babies," according to Hello! Provoost, who had traveled from the Netherlands to see the races, gladly handed her child to the royal mother of three. 

When Kate handed Norah back to her mom, Provoost said, "Enjoy your day and enjoy your children." Kate's love for babies was witnessed earlier in the visit as she smiled and greeted a child wearing a bucket hat. Prince William, who just celebrated his 40th birthday, lovingly watched as his wife cooed over the babies. 



 

 

For Kate being around babies and toddlers is an occupational hazard. In the past, she has admitted to feeling "broody" after meeting young children. "Can you get my wife out of here before she gets broody?" William joked last month as the pair visited a Scottish class that taught students about empathy by observing an infant Saul, their "tiny teacher."

Even on the first day of her solo royal tour to Denmark back in February, Kate met with parents and their babies while visiting the University of Copenhagen. "It makes me very broody. William always worries about me meeting under 1-year-olds. I come home saying, 'Let's have another one,'" shared Kate who shares children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, with William.

The Princess also met a number of children during their visit to East Anglia's Children's Hospice in Milton. As she met with the kids there, Kate offered her hand to be painted so her hand print would be captured onto a canvas. 8-year-old Willow Bamber helped paint her hand with a brush. Later the Princess encouraged the young girl to paint comfortably, saying, "Don't be shy!"

Bamber could be seen grinning from ear to ear as she helped the royal press her hand onto the canvas before being cheered on by the crowd. According to PEOPLE, Prince William and Kate toured the hospice which was established by Princess Diana on August 1, 1989. The couple also met kids, young people, and families who use services through charity EACH. Kate's been a royal patron of EACH since 2012.
