The Duchess of Cambridge is seen stopping to admire a gorgeous toddler during a walkabout in Quebec City. She was offered a bouquet by the two-year-old daughter of British expat David Cheater.
Kate smiled at the youngster named Raffaela and laid a hand on her head, telling her father: “What a beautiful daughter you have”.
And when David wished the duchess luck in her own efforts to start a family, she thanked him, adding: “Yes, I hope to”.
She was clad in her first outfit of the day, a nude-hued Vanessa dress by Joseph paired with her trusty nude platforms.
It is the first time Kate has spoken publicly about having children, although shortly after Prince William proposed, he revealed that they plan on starting a family.
The walkabout came on day four of their official North American tour, after they donned chef’s whites for a cookery lesson in Montreal.
And the pair later attended a Freedom of the City Ceremony outside City Hall.
William was met with warm applause when he gave a short speech in French, thanking his audience for their “patience" with his accent, and promising to return.
