Kate was at The Goring as it celebrated its reopening after the beautiful hotel, closed for a month to undergo extensive refurbishments. The opening coincided with the family-owned property's 105th birthday. The Coldstream Guards band welcomed guests including the Duchess, Damian Lewis, and Sir John Major.
The Naples press reported a conversation between Kate and a guest, in which the Duchess recounted a charming story about Prince George:
"Claudia Gordon not only got to meet and eat lunch with the Duchess of Cambridge, she got to have a personal, friendly conversation with the future queen.
'I asked her if Prince George was excited about the new prince or princess that was coming and she said yes and that he is a toddler and is talking and walking,' Goran began. 'Then she told me that his daddy, Prince William, was visiting China. After hearing this he went to the china cabinet, opened it and proclaimed ‘daddy is not here.’ She said they would work on his geography.'"
