Kate Middleton in Grimsby

Rex

The Duchess of Cambridge proved a hit with supporters when she went to Grimsby last month to visit projects supported by the Prince's Trust, but seeing as she was in such high demand it seems some of her younger fans missed out on seeing her.

10-year-old Isabella Clarkson wrote to Kate Middleton to share her excitement at the visit to her home town, but told the Duchess she was disappointed that she had only managed to catch a glimpse of her arm from the crowds.

Speaking to This Is Grimsby, Isabella shared: "I'd spent ages making a glittery banner to hold the night before, but I don't think she [Kate Middleton] saw it. I wrote a letter to her afterwards saying how disappointed we all were not to get to meet her and then we got a reply. I'm going to get my letter and photograph framed and keep them forever."

Kate Middleton is said to have been "immensely touched" by the note, so much so that she had the Head of Corrsepondence at St James' Palace send a letter in response.

The letter ended: "The Duchess of Cambridge was immensely touched that you should take the trouble to write as you did. It really was most thoughtful of you and Her Royal Highness has asked me to send you her warmest thanks and best wishes."
