Who knew? The Duchess has a hidden talent! While paying a private visit to a children's hospital on Tuesday, Kate Middleton played the ukulele! Yep! Apparently, the Duchess was a three-time ukulele champion during her years at St. Andrews University. Just kidding. No, but Kate really did just play the ukulele -- adorable!


Apparently, at one point during her 90-minute visit to the Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School in Kent, the Duchess met with a young boy who showed her how to strum a few chords on the ukulele. Headteacher John Ivens said of the Duchess' playing, "She kept up with them. There's a career there."

Obviously, the Duchess isn't going to quit her day job and become a professional ukulele player, but it's incredibly sweet that she went ahead and did this -- particularly when there weren't any cameras rolling. I'm sure the kids and the staff were thrilled to see the future Queen of England attempting to make music from a tiny little instrument. 

In the next few weeks, Kate will likely kick her appearances and royal duties up a notch in an effort to pack them in before baby number two arrives. Hopefully, during that time, we'll be privy to more adorable stories like this. So cute!
