With kids as adorable as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, who wouldn't be completely and utterly enamoured by them?
That's certainly the case for their doting mum Duchess Catherine, who shared a very sweet revelation while visiting a school in north London on Tuesday, February 5th.
The royal was in her element as she chatted to Year 2 students where they discussed what makes them happy.
And just as we were picturing a giant block of chocolate, ice cream sundaes and even the feeling of that first dip in the ocean on a hot summers day, the royal one-upped us all with her happiest feat.

In a moment that made our hearts collectively melt, the Duchess pulled out a picture of her family from her wallet, revealing that the faces in the pic are her most treasured feats.
"This is a photo of my family, these are my children," she told the children.
"My family makes me feel happy. And we like playing outside together and spending lots of time together as a family. And that makes me feel very happy."
The image, which was the same as the image released as their official Christmas portrait, shows the family dressed casually as they sit in front of their country home Anmer Hall.

Kate made a big impression as soon as she stepped out at Lavender Primary School, wearing a bright green woollen dress by Eponine London paired with a Mulberry clutch.
The royal styled her hair in its signature loose curls, and added an an edgy touch to her chic ensemble with black lace-up L.K.Bennett boots.
Suffice to say we're going to be seeing this trendy boot style everywhere come winter!
At the event, the mother-of-three also opened up about the importance of healthy eating telling the youngsters her daughter Princess Charlotte "loves olives" and making pasta sauce from scratch.
Chief executive of the the Ivy Learning Trust, Matthew Kleiner-Mann, revealed: "She was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her. They made cheesy pasta the other day."
"One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in, and they make salads and stuff. Food is important to her and she understands the links between mental health and physical exercise."

The visit was in respect of Children's Mental Health Week, with the Duchess, who is patron of Place2Be, showing her support by spending time with the youngsters at the school.
Place2Be provides in-school support and expert training to improve the well-being of pupils, teachers and families.
Kate is the perfect fit for the role, being a passionate advocate for early childhood learning and a strong believer in supporting children young to prevent them running into issues later in life.
And it's clear that Kate is a natural with kids - in January, the Duchess shared an adorable moment with a young girl when she stepped out with Prince William in Scotland.
In an adorable clip that went viral, a young girl is seen sharing a sweet moment with the 37-year-old Duchess as she strokes a lock of her hair. Kate takes it all in her stride, laughing and speaking to the young girl.
