The Duchess of Cambridge shared a touching moment with a young fan during an day of engagements in Cumbria on Tuesday.

When she greeted two adorable sisters however, there was some confusion over the royal's attire.

"Then Kate was talking about her dog and she said, "Your dogs are so calm".

She recently spoke about this when showcasing her garden at the Chelsea Flower Show: 'There's an unbelievable fact that I learned recently that 90 per cent of our adult brains are developed before the age of five and what a child experiences in these really early years directly affects how their brain develops, ' she said.

The little girl's dad said: "It's a princess".

Kate herself opted for a sleek ponytail for the royal outing, that complemented her English country look. "I'm sorry. I came in my pants and my coat because I'm going to see some sheep".

Kate wasn't phased, and had an entirely practical response to what she treated as a very legitimate question.

She even sought the girl's approval asking if she thought it was a good idea.

Kate and William documented the day out on their official Kensington Palace Instagram account. The gala was hosted by Action on Addiction (of which she is Patron) with chef Skye Gyngell and Kate wore a jaw-dropping outfit to attend - consisting of a long white off-the-shoulder jersey midi dress by Barbara Casasola, which she first wore in 2016.

As they officially tweeted, the pair "celebrated the work of local heroes, volunteers and those supporting the rural community in Cumbria".

There, Kate and William got their hands dirty by tending to the Brown family's flock of Herdwick and Swaledale sheep, having a go a shearing the animals, herding and repairing a dry stone wall.

To many of her youngest fans, Duchess Kate is a fairy-tale princess. The Duchess also wore her Kiki McDonough earrings and See by Chloé boots.

One pup was named Harry, after her brother-in-law, Prince Harry.
