Kate Middleton, 41, has been known to have a few moves up her sleeve, whether that means she’s using her signature parenting move or putting her special posing technique for photos to good use. Earlier this week, Middleton and her husband, Prince William, 41, traveled to Wales to celebrate the start of U.K.’s Black History Month, and the mother of three used a new move that has been used by Taylor Swift on multiple occasions.

According to People magazine, the Prince and Princess of Wales paid a visit to the Fitzalan High School in Cardiff, Wales, to learn more about how students are being taught Black history in the classrooms and career courses offered. While meeting some royal admirers, Middleton showed off a heart-hand gesture, which has frequently been used by Swift as well as her fans (aka Swifties).

At the same event, we also got a chance to see the royal mom’s go-to parenting move in action. While greeting a group of schoolchildren, the royal couple bent down to talk to the kids at eye level. 

This particular move has been known to create a comfortable and open environment for the child to communicate freely. The prince and princess have used this move on their own three children as well. And we’ve never seen them look so in sync.

In addition to marking the start of Black History Month, the royal couple also celebrated the 75th anniversary of the HMT Empire Windrush coming to London. The couple met longtime members of the Windrush Cymru EldersBlack History Cymru 365 and the Minority Ethnic Youth Forum.

Could this become another one of Kate’s go-to moves? We sure hope so.
