Rose Ann Harris, director of early childhood services at the Northside Centre for Child Development said: "The children thought she was the Princess from Frozen.

"When they heard she was coming they thought it was Elsa - we said a Princess and they got a Princess.

"The visit meant everything to the children, they were thrilled and it acknowledges all the hard work of the staff."

Kate steals the show during royal couple's US trip

The Duchess of Cambridge caused a media frenzy across the pond when she followed in the footsteps of Princess Diana by visiting Harlem during her New York trip.

Meanwhile in Washington, her husband Prince William delivered a speech to the World Bank against illegal wildlife poaching.

His talk was delayed slightly due to a security scare in a car parked nearby but resumed promptly and according to plan.

But however important his message was, it will be Kate making the headlines on this trip.
