Kate Middleton has always been a good role model for her children, and it seems that she is trying to share her interests with her children as much as she can. This includes her love for a museum.
Her two eldest, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are regular visitors at the Natural History Museum, checking out the dinosaur skeletons or the natural treasures, but this time the Duchess of Cambridge changed things up. The royal trio made a visit to the Imperial War Museum in London, located south of the river Thames. The museum commemorates the history of British valor and hardship starting with WWI to the present day.
We have no doubt that during their visit Kate shared some wartime sacrifices made within her own family to her children. Back in 2018, during a visit to the museum Kate was shown letters relating to the three brothers of her great-grandmother, all of whom fought and died in WWI. She was shown multiple documents, including a letter of condolence from the Keeper of the Privy Purse at Buckingham Palace.
Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the outing. Prince William is actually the patron of the museum’s foundation, which was set up with the goal of fundraising for the museum in London and its allied sites around the U.K.
At the moment, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are on their half-term vacation from Thomas’s Battersea school in London. During the first weekend of the break, the family packed their bags and went for a get-away at their country home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk, where Prince William and Kate had an engagement planned, which included baking cupcakes for a special cause.
The treats they made were decorated with red poppies to commemorate those who died in the war. Then they were delivered as gifts to residents of a local care home run by the Royal British Legion. The Royal British Legion is the charity that runs the annual Poppy Appeal that runs many of the celebrations that are made for remembering and celebrating the lives and heroism of those who fought for the British and Commonwealth armed forces in both World Wars and other conflicts that followed.
