Shy toddler runs away from the Duchess of Cambridge as she visits Kensington charity

The Duchess of Cambridge visited Kensington Charity Family Friends. 

Flora Taylor, Chief Executive of Family Friends, said the visit was “a great honour” and described Kate’s questions as “pertinent”.

Volunteer at the charity Daniel Christian said:

 “She made me feel at ease, like I could talk to her about the issues we have, to raise awareness of the work we do.”

However, perhaps the most memorable moment of the day came when toddler Ryan Dixon, who was meant to present Kate with flowers, suddenly became shy around the Duchess and couldn’t bring himself to hand the bouquet over.  As the moment came, Ryan said “No no, Mummy, no no Mummy” before trying to run away.
