Liverpool comedian John Bishop had the Duchess of Cambridge in a fit of giggles today when they launched a new scheme to help families affected by addiction.
Kate, wearing a coral dress by Goat, was seen laughing at the end of the visit when Bishop appealed to the press not to focus on what the "style icon" was wearing, where the clothes were from or what hairstyle was in place - but to focus on the project they were supporting.
"Basically, don't make the story about me," he joked.
The VIPs were in north London supporting a pilot programme for the school-based project M-PACT (Moving Parents and Children Together) Plus.
The initiative, funded by The Royal Foundation and Comic Relief, and delivered by charities Place2Be and Action on Addiction, of which the Duchess is a patron, aims to provide early support for schoolchildren affected by a parent's drug or alcohol misuse.
