The Empathy scheme is by Action For Children, which Kate is patron of, and has been running in Scotland for 12 years.

Results are said to show a reduction in violence in adults who have been to classes with babies and greater signs of empathy and emotional intelligence.

The royal couple were cheered outside by 150 pupils waving Action For Children balloons and later Kate sat with 10-month-old Saul Molloy whilst reading a children's book.

According to the Mirror, William and Kate joined in on the run nursery rhymes and interacting with the children making the required actions for Wheels on the Bus and Incy Wincy Spider.

At the end of the session, Kate asked the children: "Do you think lots of schools should have a programme like this" and all 35 kids yelled "yes" to which Kate and William agreed.

The Cambridges then joined 12-year-olds Annie Jones and Zac Hughes, who previously took the Roots of Empathy classes when they were younger, with Kate describing the class as "really amazing as he first came in so small and is now crawling around.

"Amazing just watching, seeing how they reacted to different situations."

The 40-year-old also noted just how important "emotional vocabulary" and "expressing negative emotions" as an adult is.

After visiting the Glasgow primary school, the couple then visited a project operated by The Wheatley Group to see first hand how it's transforming lives of vulnerable people and those at risk of homelessness.

The pair, who are known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland, spoke to service users who have benefitted from access to employment support to help mitigate the impact of poverty.

In addition to this, they also visited a new-build property in the Kennishead area to learn just how crucial good-quality and secure housing was with William known to focus a lot on homelessness.
