Duchess Of Cambridge Goes Camping With School Kids

On Sunday, the Duchess of Cambridge joined inner-city schoolchildren on a camping trip in Kent. The group of 28 eight and nine-year-olds built tents and made campfires on a weekend designed to help develop their confidence and teamwork skills. Kate, 30, (who also spent the day Friday with local children) joined some of the campers under their makeshift shelters and on a ramble through the woods.

And, of course, she answered their questions about life as a princess. “It’s very busy and great fun but I am very well looked after,” Kate told one child.

“She said she got to visit lots of countries but hadn’t seen as many as William,” Tigerlily Smith, 8, told reporters of her conversation with Kate. As for married life, “She said William was very sweet and kind and spoiled her,” Smith revealed.


The students, from ARK’s King Solomon Academy Primary in north Westminster, London, went camping at Widehorizons’ Margaret McMillan House in Wrotham, Kent. The Foundation of Princes William and Harry (of which Kate is now a patron) supports ARK, a U.K. education charity.

The dressed-down duchess (who donned Le Chameau boots and jeans), was a hit with the children, one of whom was eager to show off his manners. ARK spokesperson Lesley Smith said the campers enjoyed themselves tremendously on their trip.

Prince Harry Becomes Next-door Neighbor of William and Kate

After returning from his tour of the Caribbean and Brazil, Prince Harry, 27, took his bags from his rooms at Clarence Houseover over to the Kensington Palace compound where Prince William and Kate live.

The prince is temporarily in a one-bedroom apartment in the Palace, until he can relocate to a bigger place when William and Kate move to their long-term home next year.

“This is not a huge space, but it is only natural now he’s in his 20s that he would want to be independent and have his own place, and move out of the place he has been since he was a child,” a Palace source tells PEOPLE.  ”The princes are very close, and Harry is also very close to the duchess,” the source adds. “They have all been thinking about this for a while, and when the opportunity came up they grabbed it.”


It means that William and Kate and Harry can be geographically closer when they are all in London. “They do things privately together a lot,” the source says, “and there are things that all three attend together in a formal capacity, and hopefully that won’t change.”

As previously announced, when William and Kate move into their permanent home, Apartment 1a, late next year, Harry will move into their two-bedroom home, Nottingham Cottage. Work on their home begins in earnest in September.
