Kate, 39, and William, 38, attended a school in East London. The Duke and Duchess visited School 21 in Stratford. They were there to support teachers and students as they returned to school.
Judi James told Express.co.uk: “Kate shares her husband’s technique of creating empathy with small children, crouching down to eye-level and leaning forward in a listening pose to encourage them to relax and speak happily.
“All the children in these poses look totally relaxed and chatty as a result, which is quite a feat considering the cameras and the fact they are being visited by royals.”
This is even more impressive when it comes to the current climate, as visitors have to wear masks.
Judi went on: “This ability to create rapport is even more important now the children are seeing adults in face masks.
“Both Kate and William focus on creating some slightly exaggerated eye expressions here to make sure nothing is lost by the fact that their mouths aren’t visible.”
Kate wore pink for the engagement, in a bright and cheerful hue.
She wore a jumper, by British brand Boden, with a scalloped neckline.
Kate paired the outfit with suede black heels by Italian designer Gianvito Rossi, worth £520, and a mask that she has worn before – a floral, multicoloured cotton version.

Judi commented on Kate’s choice of pink. She said: “It could be apt that Kate chose to wear a colour called ‘Shocking Pink’ for this outing because, unlike the more submissive pastel pink she wore for her recent video call, this chic, strong, memorable shade of pink is the one you wear to get noticed and to make a statement.”
She claimed the body language suggests team Cambridge is as tight as ever, with shared thinking and a desire to create an impression of an evenly-balanced double-act.”
The couple, who have been married since 2011, regularly mirror each other’s body language, especially when sitting down and speaking to others.
Judi added: “Even back-to-back here the couple use intense postural echo, standing posed with feet slightly splayed and their hands clasped in front of their torsos as they chat to each of their hosts.”
