The moment Kate Middleton sweetly embraces crying little girl on surprise walkabout

A young fan appeared overwhelmed as she met Kate Middleton on Sunday, bursting into tears as she was comforted by the understanding royal.

The sweet moment took place in the middle of the crowds surrounding King Charles' Coronation Concert on Sunday, with the Prince and Princess Of Wales making a surprise appearance to greet the public.

Clad head-to-toe in Union Jack emblazoned garments and donning a fluffy hairband with flags sticking out, the adoring royal fan appeared unable to keep her emotions in as she got a one-to-one with Kate.

Caught on BBC News' broadcast of the visit, Kate could be seen kneeling down to comfort the young girl, giving her a hug while chatting and laughing – tenderly stroking the fans arm to help calm her down.

A beaming family member stood alongside to capture the special moment on video, also managing to chat with the royal too.

Fans were delighted to get the chance to see Kate and William, who had made the visit to The Long Walk unannounced, and took time to chat with concert-goers.

Scores of people crowded around the royal couple, with William crouching down to chat to a boy and girl wearing golden crowns.

The prince and princess looked relaxed, with William telling one group of well-wishers: “Enjoy the concert tonight”.

The surprise appearance took place ahead of tonight's Coronation Concert, which will kick off at 8pm and will feature performances by Katy Perry, Take That, and Lionel Richie.

While he spent the day greeting royal fans alongside his wife, Prince William will undoubtedly have also been busy practicing for this evening's concert.

The heir to the throne – who had a few important roles at yesterday’s event, including swearing his allegiance to his father – is set to take to the stage to deliver a speech amid the musical performances, which is being hosted in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

While it’s unclear what the Prince of Wales will be speaking about, it’s highly likely he’ll honour his father and stepmother to the gathering crowds and those watching at home.

Ahead of the concert, people draped with Union Jack flags and dressed in patriotic ensembles have been flooding off trains at the station over the day, which follows on from the King and Queen Consort's Coronation on Saturday in Westminster Abbey.

The two hour service was witnessed in person by 2,000 VIP guests, including members of the royal family, celeb guests and friends, and millions around the world on TV.

Today Buckingham Palace have said that King Charles and Queen Camilla were “deeply touched” by the nation’s celebration of their historic Coronation.

A Palace spokesman said: “Their Majesties were deeply touched by the events of yesterday and profoundly grateful both to all those who helped to make it such a glorious occasion – and to the very many who turned out to show their support in such numbers in London and further afield.”
