Catherine who is expecting her third baby was in a fit of laughter as the Paddington bear charmed her and welcomed her with a kiss on the hand.
The Palace spokesperson described the event as “a unique opportunity for members of Their Royal Highnesses’ Charities Forum to nominate some of the children they support – many going through difficult times in their lives – for a special trip aboard the train”.
Before leaving they waved off Belmond British Pullman as it departed Paddington Station to journey through the English countryside.
