During a visit to Leicester on Thursday, the Duchess of Cambridge met with well-wishers and gave one an update on Prince William.
Physiotherapist Laura Murphy, 30, asked about the royal who's currently working in the Falkland Islands, and Kate replied: "He's well, but I'm missing him terribly," Murphy told PEOPLE.
Earlier in the day, Kate and Queen Elizabeth watched a fashion show at De Monfort University and met with locals near Leicester's Clock Tower where they took in a dance celebrating Holi, a Hindu spring festival.
Kate, 30, chatted animatedly with assistant city mayor Manjula Sood, who was explaining the moves.
Later the two were welcomed to the city by the mayor – and Queen Elizabeth was presented with a commemorative photo album from her other visits to the city.
