Kate Middleton keeps mum over nursery plans in Glasgow

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Emirates Arena in Glasgow this morning, where they were greeted by dancers, young athletes and Clyde, the Commonwealth Games 2014 mascot.

While Kate, dressed in a stunning tartan coat from Gloucestershire-based designers Moloh, praised Clyde’s dancing efforts, William chatted to a group of young children, who were keen to give the prince a high-five.

Proving he is down with the kids, Wills joked: “Those aren’t high fives. You’ve got to hit my hand. Hit it!”

Outside the arena, the duchess received bouquets of flowers from Royal well-wishers as she chatted about the magnificent venue.

One fan asked: “Kate, have you got your nursery ready?”

The mum-to-be replied: “No, not yet. I’ve got a lot to do.”

William also took the time to chat, but he didn’t receive such a warm welcome from one young lady.

Four-year-old Shona Ritchie was dressed as a princess but she didn’t take too kindly to the prince leaning in to give her a little kiss.

Laughing about the incident, Prince William joked: “Oh, next time, Shona, next time.”

Afterwards, a mum spoke of her joy at Kate and Wills taking the time to chat to her and her baby.

She said: “Both William and Kate came over and they both said hello to Heidi.

“We’re huge supporters and the amount of work they do is phenomenal and it’s great for Glasgow 2014 that they’re here.”

When asked if she thought Kate would be a good mum, she replied: “Oh she’ll be a great mum I’m sure and William will be great as he was clearly very good with all the children that went past too.”

Kate and Wills, or the Earl and Countess of Strathearn as they are known in Scotland, have visited various projects in Glasgow today.

Tomorrow, they will visit Dumfries House near Cumnock in East Ayrshire, where they will officially open an outdoor education centre on the estate.
