Duchess gets into the Christmas spirit

The Duchess of Cambridge has been in the US practising her present-wrapping skills just in time for Christmas.

Kate wore black tights with matching gloves and a coat with a white trim as she visited a home for vulnerable people on Monday December 8.

She charmed residents and employees of Harlem's Northside Center for Child Development alike as she wrapped gifts for children who are considered to be among the poorest in New York.

The Duchess then participated in a crafts and arts lesson at the home, which offers learning and mental health support for disadvantaged young people.

Kate also joined children aged three to four, who were busy fixing decorative tinsel flowers and stars to picture frames.

All nine children suffer development issues, ranging from motor skills problems to language difficulties. They welcomed Kate with cries of "Princess!"
