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.

Kate and William Back On Red Carpet For ‘African Cats’

After an absence from the red carpet, Kate Middleton and Prince William made an appearance at the London premiere of the film African Cats on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the screening to help raise donations for William’s animal conservation charity, Tusk Trust. Looking absolutely stunning in a peplum Matthew Williamson dress, Middleton and her husband endured the rain as they walked towards the BFI Southbank. Prince William was a perfect gentleman and held an umbrella for Middleton while strolling down the red carpet.

The Disney Nature film, directed by Guy Ritchie, features a pride of lions and a family of cheetahs in Kenya. This movie highlights the animal welfare crisis and how these cats must fight for their survival each and every day.

“He’s passionate about Africa and he’s very concerned about the current crisis,” the co-founder of Tusk Trust, Charlie Mayhew, said of Prince William. “It’s enormously important and enormously valuable to have as our royal patron Prince William,” he added.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have both been enthusiastic in their public duties. What can you say about the Royal Couple’s passion for public and environmental welfare? Feel free to share your opinions with us!
