Kate Middleton Surprises Schoolchildren with Gift from Anmer Hall

The Duchess of Cambridge surprised local schoolchildren as she stepped out to visit the Natural History Museum in South Kensington on Tuesday.

Kate, who is a patron of the London museum, heard how communities across the UK will benefit from its Urban Nature Project, which is being launched later this year. The project aims to help people reconnect with the natural world and find practical solutions to protect our planet's future.

The Duchess also visited the Museum's Wildlife Garden and joined local schoolchildren taking part in nature activities, including spider-making and an interactive story-telling exercise.  

Kate even brought along some homemade honey from her country home, Anmer Hall, for the children to try.

The Duchess was greeted by Museum Director, Dr Doug Gurr, upon arrival. 

The Urban Nature Project will see the museum's five-acre grounds transformed into a globally relevant urban nature epicentre complete with outdoor classrooms, a 'living lab' and a weatherproof cast of the Museum's famous diplodocus, Dippy. 

As part of her longstanding work on child development in the early years, Kate believes that spending time outdoors plays a pivotal role in children's future health and happiness.

In 2019 she helped to create the Back to Nature garden for the Chelsea Flower Show and she has previously said that she's happy when she's with her family "outside in the countryside and we're all filthy dirty".
