Kate Middleton Shares Extremely Rare Message…in Danish

Kate Middleton is expanding her multilingual skills. Well, sorta.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, recently shared a video on the joint Instagram account she shares with her husband, Prince William. In the caption, Middleton included a Danish phrase, “På snarligt gensyn,” which translates to “see you soon.”

The video shows Middleton’s hands assembling Legos to unveil the Denmark flag. The clip is referencing the royal’s upcoming trip to Copenhagen later this month, where she’ll raise awareness about the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.

“Looking forward to learning from experts, parents and practitioners about Denmark’s approach to early childhood later this month,” Middleton wrote in the caption. “Denmark is a beacon of best practice in its approach to the early years which values the roles of parents and results in both communities of support and government policies that underpin the best start in life.”

Middleton added the Danish phrase and concluded the caption with a personal sign-off, writing, “C.” The letter is derived from her first name, Catherine.

Fans filled the comments section with messages about Legos and Middleton’s iconic sapphire engagement ring, which previously belonged to Princess Diana. One person wrote, “Still remember how much it hurt to step on one in bare feet.” Another added, “I just kept looking at her amazing Engagement [diamond ring emoji]…it’s rare to see it up that close.”

The real question is: Did the Legos come from Prince Louis’s toy chest?
