Kate Middleton and Prince William Were in Full-On Parenting Mode at Their Latest Outing

With three small children in the house, Kate Middleton and Prince William surely spend plenty of their time parenting. However, it appears that they've still got some tricks up their sleeve when they're around other kids too.

During their latest outing to the East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) in Cambridgeshire, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in full-on parenting mode as they visited with families receiving support from EACH, as well as longtime workers from the organization.

As the pair rolled up in two chic blue ensembles, they were seen excitedly engaging with a group of children, and in one snap, the couple leaned down to get eye-level with a few kids they chatted with (a move we've seen Middleton use on a number of different occasions).

As we've noted in the past, this maneuver to get eye-level with children helps foster open communication and creates a comfortable environment for kids, by literally showing you're on the same level. It is even something that Middleton does with her own kids.

Following this moment, the duke and duchess continued to show off their parenting skills, like in this shot, in which the pair chatted up a youngster, again making eye contact and providing open, inviting body language.

In another particularly great moment, the Duchess of Cambridge joined in on a fingerpainting activity, and she is seen smiling as she presses her hand down with the help of a young girl seated next to her.

Totally adorable and begs the follow-up: Are they available for babysitting?
