Kate Middleton shared some details about how they celebrated Christmas.

The Prince and Princess of Wales attended the royal family's traditional Christmas morning service with their three children — Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, Sunday. The family got separated while they were greeting the crowd waiting for them after the service.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, shared a relatable revelation while chatting to a young well-wisher. In a video shared on Twitter, she accepted flowers from a little girl named India, and the royal asked the latter, "Have you had a nice morning? Has Father Christmas been?" referencing the British name for Santa Claus, People reported.

India gave an affirmative response and asked Middleton if she was enjoying the day as well. The royal mom of three shared the presents her kids received and how her day started.

"I have a lovely morning," Middleton said before jokingly adding, "I have quite an early start."

"They got lots of lovely things, thank you very much," Middleton said when someone from the crowd asked if the royal kids received lots of nice things.

Karen Anvil shared the video, but the moment was captured by a woman behind her named Victoria. The netizens gushed over the interaction between the Princess of Wales and India, with several saying it was "beautiful" and "stunning." Many loved how Prince William's wife instantly connected with kids.

"I'm fangirling both #PrincessofWales and India!!!!!" one wrote. Another added, "I am amazed at how effortlessly she engages with children. I am not that classy. I'd be like uhm. Where's your mom? She's gorgeous. Well done India!"

"Elegant and graceful as usual, the perfect queen material. Princess Di would be proud of William and Kate," another fan said.

Several members of the royal family were present during the walkabout. Aside from the Waleses, King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince Andrew, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice and more were also there.

However, Prince Louis, who made his Christmas walkabout debut, caught the attention of the crowd. He was seen running alone, and many thought he was trying to catch up with his family.

Another video taken from a different angle revealed that Prince Louis rushed toward Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte with an extended arm. He was calling her sister's name and handed her a small bouquet he had received from the crowd. The sweet encounter between the royal siblings melted the hearts of the royal fans present at the walkabout.

"Awww! Prince Louis running to his Father, Prince William and his siblings to join them and hand Princess Charlotte some flowers is the brotherly bond I needed to see today," one wrote.

"Louis loves his big sister!! [S]o wonderful. Let's pray they stick together through life, not like what is happening to Harry and William," another commented.
