The royal couple visited the set of children's program Blue Peter.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t known to get touchy-feely in public, but the royal pair relaxed their PDA rules a little for an appearance on beloved British children’s show Blue Peter on Wednesday.
The couple visited the set of the BBC program to talk about their mental health initiative and were overjoyed to find they had been awarded the Gold Blue Peter badge for their campaign work on children’s mental health.
The badge is considered an incredible honour and has only been awarded to a handful of people, including the Queen, throughout show’s 60-year history.
“That’s very touching,” said William, while Kate said receiving the badge was “hugely special,” and “a real honour.”
When told they were following in the Queen’s footsteps, William exclaimed, “We’ll compare!” prompting Kate to laugh and place her hand on his leg and say “we’ve got a lot more work to do I think”.
