It's not easy to upstage Kate Middleton, unless, of course, your name is Yahya Hussein Ali.

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge paid a special visit to the Rugby Portobello Trust in London to hand out Christmas gifts to young children, where she met the seven-year-old.

Ali, one of many children affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in June, couldn't resist the opportunity to ham it up for the cameras, flashing a peace sign as the duchess kneeled down for a chat.

Seemingly overcome by the youngster's adorable brand of cool, the mother of two simply backed off and let him have his swag-filled moment in the spotlight. Beside him, Middleton couldn't help but look on in awe. Same, Kate. Same.
