Duchess Kate and Prince Louis spent their Valentine's Day with a little mother-son bonding time at Hyde Park! The 37-year-old was spotted walking through the green space with the nine-month-old prince by an excited fan. The footage, which was shared on Twitter, shows the pair wandering through the park and feeding the ducks at Serpentine lake. The mom-to-three looked relaxed as she enjoyed the sunny London day, wearing black skinny jeans, a black puffer jacket and New Balance sneakers.
Though rarely photographed, visits to the park are a common occurrence for the Duchess of Cambridge. She's made regular visits to the urban park which is near Kensington Palace with Prince George, 5, and three-year-old Princess Charlotte. On this particular occasion, Kate was also accompanied by a female protection officer.
While the duchess and her youngest enjoyed a little quiet time at Hyde Park, Prince William spent his Valentine's Day at an event at London's Abbey Centre. The 36-year-old took part in a series of workshops at a fathers development program called "Future Men," that aimed to help build the confidence of men in their role as new dads. As part of the day, the Duke of Cambridge spoke candidly about his fears of becoming a first-time parent.
“The fear of having a newborn baby, that’s very vulnerable and that’s what you spend most of your time worrying about, thinking what do I do?” he told attendees as he changed diapers and learned how to feed babies. “And that’s the thing isn’t it? It’s very daunting of how tiny they are when they first arrive.”
He continued: “They are so fragile, tiny little fingers and toes. You do feel like if you move them around too much, they are going to break, but they don’t." He then joked to one attendee, "Wait until they’re nine months, and they’ll be off.”
The day wrapped up with an intimate conversation between the duke and a group of fathers, where he spoke candidly about the importance of practicing self-care as a new parent.
