During a chat with a member of the public on a visit to Northern Ireland, Kate was told how old their son was.

To this, Kate is said to have replied: "Oh, he’s the same age as Lottie."

Prince William recently offered a rare insight into their home life, after revealing that he has a dance party with his children every morning.

Speaking on Apple Fitness+'s Time to Walk series, as reported by People, he said: "Most mornings there's a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning."

He added: "I have to, now, basically prioritise that one day someone does this one, and another day it's someone else's turn,” he described. “So George gets his go, then Charlotte gets her go. Such is the clamour for the music."

Prince William revealed that Shakira's Waka Waka is a favourite in their house, saying: "There's a lot of hip movements going along.

"There's a lot of dressing up."
