And this was evident once again as they embarked on their festive train tour across the United Kingdom to thank people for their efforts in combatting Covid-19 in what has been a truly challenging year.

The couple have won over hearts and minds with their genuine warmth, with Kate even proving that, yes, she is normal at times when she appeared to make a spelling error in a handwritten message.

The 38-year-old duchess, who looked both regal and Christmassy in a red Tartan scarf and green Alexander McQueen coat, left a message for all transport workers on a whiteboard at Euston Train Station. “Thank you to all transport workers everywhere for keeping the coutry (sic) moving throughout this difficult year. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!”

Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed that the ‘N’ in country was missing – but she was quickly forgiven.

“Lovely gesture by them both. Missed out the N in country though! Still very sweet and thoughtful to all these workers,” one Twitter user wrote, while another said, “They look very noble and wonderful.”

When Prince William (38) signed his name after his wife, fans were also quick to notice that he was left-handed.

“Wow . . . didn't know that the Duke was left-handed," wrote one user.

“Prince Will is left-handed?” another asked.

Royal insiders have said the couple’s journey will “lighten the nation’s mood” ahead of Christmas with Covid-19 restrictions again putting limits on gatherings and movements and dampening the festive season.
