The royal family is a family of animal lovers!
“She has got several Cuckoo Marans at home, she told me,” stockman Dave Evansoneya, 50, told reporters after the royal’s visit.
And Kate isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty.
“She says she had cleaned out a few chicken sheds in her time!” he said.
George and Charlotte are getting in on the action at home, too.
“She told me and the children that she has an incubator of eggs at home at the moment with a hope that they are going to hatch into chicks,” Evansoneya added. “Her children are very excited.”

Nicole Preston, a teacher atVauxhall Primary School, added, “The incubator is relatively new and she doesn’t know if it is going to work. She says it takes 21 days but George and Charlotte are so excited that they come down each morning and peer inside to see if anything has happened!”
Kate also bonded with Sayanna, 9, who speaks Spanish and she told her that her own children were learning it too — with George already able to count up to 10.
“She said she is trying to teach Charlotte Spanish and said her son George can count up to 10 in Spanish already,” she said.
Edison David, head teacher at Vauxhall Primary School, also admitted Kate had displayed a surprising talent during her visit when she went to help weigh some of the pigs.
“She was pushing the pig’s bum with her hare hands,” he said. “It was just to move the pig along. It was second nature to her. “
John Goodman, the farm manager, added, “Some people are very aloof with pigs. I didn’t know if she was one. But she was very natural, she blended in very quickly.”
Another teacher, Natalie Graham, told reporters that the children had given Kate a birthday card they had made for Princess Charlotte, who turned 2 on Tuesday, and a toy Paddington Bear.
“She told them that they had a little party for Charlotte yesterday and she sung ‘Happy Birthday’ to herself! It was so sweet,” Graham said. “She loved the card and present and said Charlotte would love it too as the card had Peppa Pig on, which she loves.”
