Duchess Kate gets back to work after mat leave.
FIVE MONTHS AFTER GIVING BIRTH TO LOUIS, THE DUCHESS GOES BACK TO WORK
Dressed in a chic khaki jacket and her favourite 14-year-old boots, last week the Duchess of Cambridge visited Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden at the Paddington Recreation Ground in London to see the work being undertaken to educate urban kids about the natural world.
Kate, who is passionate about mental health, toured the garden and was able to witness the positive impact the school has had on the children.
Clearly in top form, the duchess smiled brightly for the cameras and made sure to take the time to stop and engage with the youngsters.
And when one bold little girl cheekily asked why the cameras were taking pictures of the royal, Kate quickly quipped, “They’re picturing you! You’re special!”
Kate wasn’t afraid to get dirty during her visit either, as she planted some seeds with the children and fetched water to help the plants grow.
The 36-year-old mum of three also spoke of how she spends hours hunting for spiders with her own children.
“They’re not that shy, but they do know she’s a princess,” said Zoe Stroud, the interim head at Sayers Croft.
The outing marked the first solo official appearance Kate has made since she gave birth to Prince Louis in April.
She is also due to attend a charity event to promote World Mental Health Day on Oct. 10, before she joins the rest of the royal family on Oct. 12 to celebrate Princess Eugenie’s wedding.
One adorable girl made Kate chuckle as she showed the royal how she can hold a cup in her teeth.
