During a visit to Haida Gwaii in Northern B.C, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that her son Prince George loves playing with building bricks. The other of two made the revelation while opening a new hospital on the remote island with her husband Prince William.
One little girl particularly caught Kate's attention, as she sat on the floor playing with a pile of building bricks. "George would love those," the Duchess told three-year-old Shyanne, while Prince William joked that his children "don't have much of an attention span" and told the toddler's mother that her "little girl is doing very well" at staying focused.
The royal couple have brought their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte with them to Canada, but left the little ones at home for the day out, where they enjoyed a spot of canoeing and toured the Haida Heritage Centre.
No doubt their children were recovering from an exciting children's party they attended the day before at Government House in Victoria. The duo were the centre of attention at the fun-filled bash, which saw stalls set up in the grounds of the house with everything from a petting zoo to a balloon stand.
Little Charlotte, for whom it was her first ever official engagement, seemed particularly taken with the balloons, beelining for them as she arrived with her parents. "Pop!" the little princess said, pointing at the balloons while her big brother George looked around asking for "Mummy".
It seems that Charlotte is a fan of animals, as she was spotted having a whale of time bouncing up and down on Moose, a St John's Ambulance therapy dog, and later cuddling a black-and-white rabbit, giggling while Kate watched over her.
