@JenCarsonTaylor said: “The twirl and a curtsy — so darling! So happy to see Mila with the Duchess again.”
And @DianaDZ007 commented: “It’s amazing how kids react around Duchess Kate.”
Kate and Mila first met over the summer during a round of engagements the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge carried out in Scotland.
The Duchess welcomed Mila and her mum to Holyrood Palace, donning a pink dress after the young girl expressed the desire of meeting a real princess wearing her favourite colour.
Mila, who suffers from leukemia, was featured in a photo showing her exchanging a kiss with her father through a window as he was forced to shield away from home during the lockdown to avoid putting her health at risk.
Her dad Scott told Lorraine earlier this year: “It was a tough time, it was unbelievable and who would have thought we’d have come so far from the photo, it’s just crazy.”
Mila also received a special gift from Kate, a small container which said: “I am always with you, be brave, have courage and love life.”

In a moving address to concert guess, Kate noted how the pandemic had shown everyone “the importance of simply being together”.
The Duchess said: “We have lost loved ones, seen our frontline workers placed under immeasurable pressure, and we have experienced heart-wrenching isolation from those we hold most dear.
“Alongside this, we have seen how communities have come together to support those most in need.
“And through our separation from others, we have been reminded just how powerful human connection is to us all.
“Just how much we need one another. And how loving and feeling a sense of belonging to one another can provide comfort in tough times. The importance of simply being together.”
