Kate has never been afraid of getting her hands dirty when playing with her kids and their recent activity shows lots of smiling faces. It seems that mom Kate always has some kind of fun activity planned for her children. The Duchess of Cambridge took her three children to a craft morning painting pottery, and the young royals left a sweet reminder of their visit, a fan account claims.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis got to get their hands dirty at Mable’s Paint Pot in Norfolk, located not far from their country home Anmer Hall.
There the royal trio got to decorate pottery pieces, as well as decorating the walls, doing hand prints next to one of the windows, with some photos claiming to be of the young royals’ work, that have been released online.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eldest two, also showed off their handwriting as they wrote their name, the date, and their ages next to their hand prints.
For their handprints the royals all went with different colors, with George going for green; Charlotte choosing orange; while Louis, the youngest went with blue.
This excursion seemed to have come just in time. The account claims that the royal made this visit in March, just days before the lockdown was introduced.
A snap of their artwork was shared on Instagram by another visitor. It reads: “Spent the afternoon pottery painting so much fun!
“Kate Middleton, Prince George, Charlotte & Louis were also here on Saturday!”
If you decide to visit the shop yourself, you will have white pottery to choose from, such as plates, mugs, bowls and money boxes, which you will then paint in whatever style or color you please.
Once your creation is finished, the staff glaze and fire their creations and they are ready to collect a few days later.
The Cambridge family left Kensington Palace and moved to Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, just before the lockdown was introduced, and have been staying there ever since.
The lockdown itself had its challenges for the two senior royals, as they have stated on multiple occasions; such as homeschooling during the pandemic, admitting they tricked their kids into continuing their homeschooling work through the Easter holiday.
Speaking to the BBC, Kate said: “Children have got such stamina. I don’t know how, honestly. You get to the end of the day and you write a list of all the things you’ve done that day.
“You’ve pitched a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake, you get to the end of the day and they’ve had a lovely time. It’s amazing how much you can cram into one day, that’s for sure. However, they also admitted they had found parts of it hard. Kate added: “There have been ups and downs, probably like lots of families. With self-isolating, George is much older than Louis is but they are aware.
“You don’t want to scare them and make it too over-whelming.
“I think it is appropriate to acknowledge it in the simple ways and in the age appropriate ways.”
“Don’t tell the children, we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays. I feel very mean.”
