Kate and William in Sunderland: Royal couple visit the North East

KensingtonRoyal  Twitter

The Duchess of Cambridge is always in the spotlight, not just because it is Prince William's wife, but also because her presence is extremely enjoyable and she is charismatic enough to always attract people around her.

Shajida Begum, 18, who drew the image said: 'She was saying that it was really pretty. I was just telling her how it works. "I said, 'Honey, you need to take those shoes off ... your highness honey.' I called her honey", she told Kimmel.

The artist used natural brown henna to decorate the Kate's right hand with a small flower. Although she would often nod yes when acquaintances tell her it gets easier every time, the truth is the duchess finds it hard.

Aside from helping the pregnant duchess get through her third pregnancy, Markle also visits Middleton to ease her pre-wedding jitters.

She explained: "It was very civilised, but I thought, 'My God, if I win I've got to go up and you know, say what I've got to say in front of them.' I did win and I was very nervous".

Twitter users made it clear that they were less than thrilled by Kate's choice to seemingly ignore #TimesUp.

Twice as high as Nelson's Column in London and taller than Big Ben, the striking new bridge, Northern Spire, got a visit from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge this afternoon. Then, Prince William proved he's the coolest dad by riding motorcycles during a royal event.

Kate slipped a heavy duty safety vest over her forest green bespoke Dolce & Gabbana coat, put on safety goggles and pulled her signature blowout into a ponytail so she could wear a hard hat as she surveyed the site. She's maneuvered between the sapphire hue of her iconically elegant engagement dress to lighter toned sky-coloured day jackets, and even when she takes a major fashion risk (hello, floor-length printed velvet dress), she does it in blue.

The bridge is set to open in spring this year.

When the new bridge is finished, it will help connect the Port of Sunderland and the city centre with the A19.
