The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed there’s a little bit of healthy competition between her three children, especially her sons.

The mom of three discussed the healthy rivalry between six-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Prince Louis during a recent visit to a children’s hospice, marking the end of Children’s Hospice Week in the UK, Express reports.

Kate (38) visited the youngsters at the hospice where she helped them plant strawberries and lavender while chatting away to them.

The royal taught Star Pope-Saunders (11) and her brothers, eight-year-old Hudon and six-year-old Sonny, how to loosen plants for repotting.

While working, she regaled the little listeners with tales of how George, Princess Charlotte (5), and little Louis were whiling away the hours during lockdown and enjoyed getting their hands dirty in the garden of the Cambridges’ country home, Amner Hall in Norfolk.

The kids were having a sunflower-growing competition, Kate said – and Louis was in the lead, HELLO! reports.

George seems to have inherited his parents’ competitive streak, as the couple has been known to tease one another during head-to-head activities.

Kate also chatted about missing her mom, dad and siblings due to lockdown regulations, The Sun reports.

“I've yet to see my family as they're about three hours away in Berkshire, so I haven't seen them and I miss them,” she said during her hospice visit.

The royal also repotted a large sunflower which she donated in memory of Fraser Delf, a nine-year-old boy who died in January at the Milton hospice in Cambridge.
