The Duchess of Cambridge has appeared to reveal her support for Chelsea Football Club during a royal engagement.

In a chat about football during a visit to a mental health centre in north London, Kate joked with a young boy before sharing a high-five.

The Duchess told the youngster her husband Prince William supports Aston Villa before trying to guess which team the young boy supported.

She guesses Manchester United and the boy groans before asking in reply if she supported them.

She replied "Chelsea", which is greeted with a "yes" and a high-five from the youngster.

The children Kate met during her visit attend a school run by the Anna Freud Centre, a leading charity in research, teaching and the provision of care for children and young people with mental health issues.

The centre is named after the pioneer of child psychoanalysis - and daughter of the famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud - who was instrumental in its creation.
