On Thursday, January 20, the Duchess of Cambridge was filmed holding Alfie, an NHS therapy dog, at a hospital in Clitheroe. She later held a baby in Church on the Street in Burnley.
Kate Middleton is often seen with children when she attends royal engagements around the country.
Since she has three of her own, it is not surprising that Kate is a natural with children.
On Thursday, she held baby Anastasia as Prince William looked on.

According to body language expert Judi James, “Kate is clearly totally entranced with and focused on this baby, smiling down at it and part-ignoring the cameras for the moment after smiling at them quickly”.
William, on the other hand, “looks more set on producing a smiling pose direct to the camera with his hand in the fig-leaf pose, but we can see his wide grin beginning to convert from a social smile to something a bit warmer and more authentic”.
Judi continued: “William realises what’s going on at his side and starts glancing down at the baby too.
“He glances across and his smile turns into a grin, suggesting he really can see his wife getting broody again.
“He pretends to ‘attack’ the people around and the photographers, literally chopping the card in his hand in their direction as he says they are ‘giving her ideas’, adding ‘no more’ as he walks away.”
Here, Judi is referring to when William is joking about the idea that baby Anastasia is making Kate think about having more children.
The body language expert claimed that “William’s fig-leaf barrier pose in the presence of the baby and his very besotted-looking wife does suggest he is genuinely wary about having any more children”.
Judi continued: “His walk-away would suggest the same.”
She added: “But on the other hand he does bring it up, meaning it could be on his mind too.
“The slightly suppressed grin hints that he could possibly be persuaded to add to their family if Kate did happen to put the pressure on gently.”
William and Kate have three children: Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.
For the engagements in Lancashire, Kate wore an all-camel outfit consisting of a long wool coat, a knitted turtleneck and a matching skirt, and knee-high boots.
Her coat is from classic brand Massimo Dutti, while the knitted jumper-and-skirt combo is from designer Iris and Ink.
To complete the look, Kate donned knee-high boots in a suede material, thought to be from Saint Laurent.
Her brunette locks were in natural-looking waves down her back and she wore minimal makeup.
Meanwhile, Prince William wore a navy-blue jumper with a matching jacket and pair of trousers.
