Whoops! Kate Middleton had a sweet interaction with a little boy while out in Orkney, Scotland, on Tuesday. The 39-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was greeting local schoolchildren when one confident boy asked her, “Are you a prince?”

The mother of three laughed and shook her head no, saying, “I’m not a prince.”

He then asks, “Are you a princess?” prompting her to nod her head yes. While technically not true, the duchess decided the little guy was close enough.
