Kate Middleton reveals the one thing she hopes her kids don't inherit from her

Everyone has certain hopes for their kids' futures - for Kate Middleton, it's that her children are multilingual.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate to you and I) were on walkabout in Leicester yesterday when she stopped to greet royal fans.

In a video posted to social media, Kate can be heard saying "Ciao" to an woman and then apologising for her poor Italian.

She wants to make sure her kids George, Charlotte and Louis are able to speak Italian well, unlike her.

"I'm so bad!" she says.

"I have to make sure my children are better than me, that's my aim."

Kate is known to be a big fan of all things Italian and is no doubt being modest - she's sure to have picked up a few words during her gap year, when she studied Italian and history of art in Florence.

We know that George and Charlotte are probably more multilingual than most children under the age of six.

In 2017 Kate revealed that George could count up to ten in Spanish, having been taught by his Spanish nanny Maria Teresa Turin Borrallo.

Charlotte has also picked up some phrases in Spanish, it was reported earlier this year.

A source revealed to People Magazine that she's "very sweet and very confident – she's always chatting away".

If Kate does get her wish, the royal kids wouldn't be the first members of the family to be multilingual.

Their great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth is fluent in French.
