Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has returned to her royal duties after her and her family spent the October half-term break on the Isles of Scilly as a short staycation.
According to Court Circular, which records all of the royal family’s engagements, Kate had a meeting with Early Years on Wednesday. Back in January, Kate launched an early childhood survey, titled ‘5 Big Questions on the Under Fives’, whose goal was to spark a nationwide conversation on raising the next generation. She even went on tour for the project all over the UK, talking about it in Cardiff, Woking, London, Newtownards and Aberdeen.
As the October half-term break started, which meant that Prince George and Princess Charlotte had no school duties to attend to, the family-of-five decided to leave busy London behind and go on a small get-away. The family visited the Isles of Scilly, located some distance off the Cornish coast, with his being their second visit this year, as they also had stayed here back in July.
At the beginning, the entire family got together and baked cupcakes, which were later delivered to a Royal British Legion care home in Norfolk to support the Poppy Appeal. Since then Prince William and Duchess Kate have changed the profile photos on all of their social media accounts in tribute to Remembrance week.
The couple had to return as soon as the break ended, as Prince George and Princess Charlotte returned to their classrooms at St Thomas’s Battersea school in south-west London on Monday.
Another appearance that the couple made was on the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards, which aired on Sunday evening. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were featured in a pre-recorded segment in which they presented NHS workers with the special recognition award, during their visit to St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London.
