The Princess and the frog! Kate plays with hand puppet and sings nursery rhymes

The Duchess of Cambridge took part in a nursery rhyme session and played with a frog hand puppet during her visit to the Shooting Star House children's hospice in Hampton, Middlesex.

Kate sung Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Jingle Bells and an adapted version of Old MacDonald Had A Farm.

During the farmyard nursery rhyme she made the children giggle by playing with a toy frog.

The hospice is run by Shooting Star Chase, a charity which cares for 650 children and young people with life-limiting conditions at its centres in Hampton and Guildford.
