A young Polish fan approached Kate Middleton during a visit to Poland with Prince William.
The fan complimented Kate on her beauty, to which she responded with humility.
Kate reportedly told the fan that it was "just the makeup."
The interaction was surprising given royal protocols that discourage interaction with the public.
Kate's response showed her humility and simplicity.
The anecdote was revived by the British newspaper Daily Mirror.
The event took place in 2017 during a visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales to Poland.
The fan was named Magda Mordaka.
Kate always stands out at events she attends.
