The Duchess of Cambridge charmed children and parents during a surprise visit to the Ark Open Farm in Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
Earlier, Kate had handled a corn snake named Sophie and was given a guided tour of the farm in Co Down, meeting the owners and staff at the family-run attraction.
The visit came to an end with the duchess unveiling a plaque to mark the 30th birthday of the Ark.
