Kate Middleton and Prince William’s final speech came with an adorable interruption.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, both 40, traveled to Scarborough on Thursday to launch funding to support young people’s mental health in a collaboration led by the Royal Foundation.
During the outing, Princess Kate and Prince William met a baby girl named Callie Rose, who was dressed like a princess in a light blue dress and matching bow in her hair. The couple leaned in as Callie excitedly handed Kate a bouquet, as seen in a video shared on Twitter by Greatest Hits Radio Yorkshire Coast.
Callie also provided a lighthearted moment when she crushed Prince William’s speech. As the Prince of Wales spoke about the funding that would help the community, Callie approached the couple, making them both laugh.

So you’re in the lead where I hope others will follow. Thank you and well done for making this all possible today.
