Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William had a little meet with fans in Galway on Thursday. During this occasion the Duke of Cambridge was greeted by a woman who told him she loved Kate, and William had the perfect response!
“I said to him that I really admired him and Catherine and he said thank you very much,” Angela Moran, from Wesport, County Mayo, tells PEOPLE. “I said I love her and he said ‘I do too, nice of you to say so.’ ”
On Thursday the royal couple had their final outings of their three-day tour in the country. As they chatted with well-wishers who lined the streets, two little girls quickly caught Kate’s attention.
As they were shouting “Kate, Kate, Kate,” the royal mom of three moved quickly through the crowd to see the two girls.
“We asked to shake her hand. She is very beautiful,” says Siofre Borke, 8, who was there with friend Hazel McGann, 8.
“We were surprised she came running over,” says Hazel’s mom Paula McGann, 43.
“It was so sweet to see. You can see how Kate is drawn to the kids,” adds Phillida Eves, who was standing behind the children. “She said, ‘I’ll be really quick!’ She was making an effort.”
