This Tuesday, Duchess Kate surprised local schoolchildren during her most recent engagement when she visited the Natural History Museum in South Kensington.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who is patron of the London museum, learned about how communities across the UK will benefit from a upcoming project-the Urban Nature Project-which is set to launch later this year. The goal of the project is to help people reconnect with the natural world and find practical solutions to protect our planet’s future.
The royal also visited the Museum’s Wildlife Garden and joined local schoolchildren who were there taking part in nature activities, such as spider-making and an interactive story-telling exercise. As if meeting a royal wasnt surprising enough, Kate had also brought homemade honey from her country home, Anmer Hall, for the kids to try.
Upon her arrival at the museum she was greeted by the Museum Director, Dr Doug Gurr.
Playing outdoors and spending time in nature is very important to Kate, who loves spending time with her children outdoors doing all kinds of activities. The Duchess is such a fan that she has made it a vital part of her work on child development in the early years, often emphasizing how important nature and spending time in nature is.
Back in 2019, the royal took part in the Back to Nature garden for the Chelsea Flower Show, creating her own garden, which her three children seemed quite fond of. In the past, both Kate and William have talked about how they love spending time outdoors and are happy when they are “outside in the countryside and we’re all filthy dirty”.
For this engagement Duchess Kate rocked a casual summer look, wearing a new pink Chloe blazer with a white T-shirt, her blue jeans from & Other Stories and her VEJA trainers.
