It may not have been a Jon Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift sing-along, but the Duchess of Cambridge brought her own special talents when she had afternoon tea with a group of children on Friday.
Wearing a grey Delaney jacket from Reiss, fitted blue trousers and black suede ankle boots, Kate, 31, used a frog hand-puppet as she and the children sang "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" at the Shooting Star Children's Hospice in Hampton, on the western outskirts of London.
But not everyone was charmed by the new mom. When Demi-Leigh Armstrong, 5, complained that a friend didn't have a musical instrument, Kate offered up a rattle, which the little girl turned down with a firm, "No."

What do you give a child who will one day inherit castles and palaces?
Little Prince George has been honored with a deeply significant and special present: a fattened black bull and goat.
The gift, from the Samburu community in Kenya, is especially poignant for his parents, Prince William and Kate, as the bull will now grow up in Lewa, where they enjoyed a safari holiday at the time of their engagement in 2010.
A palace source tells PEOPLE that discussions have taken place with local cultural leaders and the bull will be used to start a royal herd. Four heifers will go with the bull, and the Northern Rangelands Trust – an organization that provides support to community conservancies – has agreed to keep this nucleus herd on Lewa.

It was the Duchess of Cambridge's turn for a night out Thursday, as she dazzled in an Alice Temperley cocktail dress at a sports-award ceremony, where she bonded with veteran and up-and-coming British athletes.
Wearing towering 4½-inch black suede Jimmy Choo heels, Kate, 31, attended an event for the charity SportsAid and presented its One-to-Watch Award – honoring an especially promising young British sportsman or -woman – to Amber Hill, a 16-year-old shooter from Bracknell.
"She congratulated me on how amazingly I have done," Hill, who holds the junior shotgun world record, told reporters afterward. "It's so nice that she recognizes young up-and-coming athletes. She's a great role model."

How far would you go to get away from a crying baby?
Prince Harry joked that he's flown all the way to Antarctica to escape his 4-month-old nephew, Prince George.
Prince William previously acknowledged that his first-born child has "a good pair of lungs on him" and his brother hinted that's why William wishes he was taking part in the 200-mile race to the South Pole.
"I think he's quite jealous I managed to get away from his screaming child," Harry said.

The Duke of Cambridge mixed fatherhood with royal duties on Friday.
He proudly told of how he had cradled a smiling Prince George in his arms early in the day before heading to a homelessness center in Sunderland in the northeast of England.
There, got his hands dirty – well, dusty – in the kitchen, sprinkling flour and rolling out dough to make chapati bread for a curry meal.
His thoughts turned to home when asked about his 4-month-old. "He was saying he had been holding him and his baby had been smiling into the mirror," said Jennifer Sams, 19, at the center.

Little Prince George is little no more!
The infant heir to the throne of England is getting big already, his proud mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, said Tuesday as she and husband William made a joint royal outing, leaving George with babysitters.
Aaron Russell-Andrews, an ex-convict who had an official role at a charity event Tuesday for troubled youth, said Kate told him George was "growing very fast" and would fit snugly in the vest, made for a 6-month-old, that Russell-Andrews gave her as a present.

Prince William and Prince Harry helped lead Britain in commemorating the country's war dead on Sunday.
William, 31, who served as a RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot until September, was watched by wife Kate as he laid a wreath of poppies at a memorial in central London. He followed his brother, army captain Harry, 29, who donned his ceremonial Household Cavalry great coat with wide red collar, in paying tribute on behalf of his father, Prince Charles (who is in India with wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall).
As in previous years, Kate, 31, watched from a balcony above Whitehall, central London, alongside William’s aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Tim Laurence, the husband of Princess Anne. Kate donned a brooch in the shape of a poppy – the traditional symbol worn to honor those who have perished in wars.
