Duchess of Cambridge had a busy day on October 7! She carried out a secret engagement at one of her favorite tourist spots in London. And it almost went unnoticed.
According to Court Circular, Kate met Fiona McWilliams (Executive Director of Development) at the Natural History Museum on Wednesday.
Her visit came shortly after she and Prince William welcomed the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his wife Оlena in their first official engagement at Buckingham Palace since the coronavirus pandemic started.
Kate has revealed previously that the Natural History Museum is one of her family’s favourite places back in 2017. She said: “Like many of you here tonight, I remember visiting the Natural History Museum as a child, and being inspired with a love of nature.
“And now, as a parent myself, I am experiencing the joy all over again with my own children, who adore coming here, and it is not just to see the T-Rex, mind you.”
Earlier this year, a photo of Prince Louis surfaced on the Internet, taken during an outing at Natural History Museum with his nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
The last time Kate visited the Museum was in October last year. She stopped at the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity to hear how it is championing and helping to protect UK wildlife.
The museum visit ties in with Kate’s work on childhood development and how nature and the outdoors can have a positive impact on physical and mental well-being. Alongside its national programme of activity, the Natural History Museum aims to inspire its millions of visitors to act for nature.
Duchess of Cambridge has been patron of the Museum since 2013. She followed in Princess Diana footsteps, who held the patronage for four years until 1993.
