Duchess of Cambridge reveals Prince George is ‘growing very fast’

The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed four-month-old Prince George is “growing very fast”.

New mum Kate made the comments as she and Prince William made an official visit to Only Connect’s London offices in Kings Cross.

The proud parents, who left Prince George at home, visited the crime prevention charity’s headquarters as they spent time speaking with staff and listening to the stories of the young people Only Connect works with.

During the visit, the Duchess met Aaron Russell-Andrews, 22, who had been helped by the charity start a career in acting, which he had decided to do to support his 20-month-old daughter, Teegan.

As Kate spoke to the former offender, Aaron gave the Duchess a vest top which was sized three to six months old. Gracefully accepting the vest, Kate told him it would be “a very good fit as he is growing up very fast” adding that the latest addition to the Royal Family, George, would “like it”.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made the visit to the London headquarters of Only Connect, as one of the handful joint engagements the couple have leading up to Christmas.

As they arrived, William and Kate were greeted with cheers. The new mum looked elegant in the Orla Kiely bird-printed dress she first debuted in 2012, on an official visit to the Art Room.

The regal royal complimented her look with suede ankle boots and a dark-coloured clutch bag.

During the visit, the couple toured the head office spending time listening to how the charity had helped the youth offenders. William and Kate also watched a dance performance and the Duchess was seen smiling as she experienced the wonderful performance.

Only Connect reaches 10,000 young people every year and their projects has reduced re-offending by 50 per cent.
