by Hanna Fillingham

Prince George is one clever little boy! His doting mum Kate has revealed that her three-year-old son can already count up to ten in another language – Spanish. The new revelation was made on Wednesday during an engagement at a farm in Gloucestershire, where the Duchess spoke to a group of schoolchildren who were learning about the daily running of a farm. Chatting with Sayanna, nine, the doting mum told the little girl that her own children, who have a Spanish nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo were learning the language. "She said she is trying to teach Charlotte Spanish and said her son George can count up to ten in Spanish already," said Sayanna.

And it seems that the young royals have a long list of talents. Last month, Prince William and Kate revealed that their two children were good at making arts and crafts during a candid interview on BBC Radio 1. When asked by presenter Scott Mills what they had given the Queen for her 91st birthday, the couple hinted that they had relied on George and Charlotte to make their great grandmother a homemade gift. The Duchess of Cambridge said: "You're good at making things," to her husband before he added: "George is good at arts and crafts."

Prince William's wife spent Wednesday afternoon at a farm in Arlingham, Gloucestershire. The farm is one of three supported by Michael Morpurgo's charity Farms For City Children, which aims to give inner-city children an understanding of farming, the countryside and food production. The group of schoolchildren had come from Vauxhall, London for the day.

Tessa Stone, chief executive, said of the visit: "It's been a joy to have her for four hours. She spent quality time with the children and she was fantastic, you can tell she can really gets it. Having had a childhood experience growing up in the countryside, she appreciates how crucial it is."
