Kate Middleton Braves Snow In Wellies And Neckerchief To Visit Scouts

Kate Middleton headed to the snow-covered Lake District for a day of outdoor activities with the scouts

Kate Middleton refused to let the plummeting temperatures prevent her from spending the day outdoors with the scouts as she honours her engagement at the Great Tower Scout Camp in the Lake District today.

KATE MIDDLETON RECEIVES ‘BABY ON BOARD’ BADGE

Despite snow very much being on the forecast the Duchess of Cambridge was determined to continue with her commitments but dressed down in practical Le Chameau wellies, jeans and a khaki jacket, not forgetting to pay tribute to the scouts wearing their signature stripped neckerchief.

Of course Kate Middleton wasn’t without a touch of glamour wearing her long hair loose but wore a peaked wool hat to prevent it getting wet in the snow.

The Duchess underwent some private scout volunteer training before sitting round the campfire to watch some fire-lighting training and got involved herself cooking dough twists over the fire. And she couldn’t help but giggle at the shape of some as she shared jokes with vounteers.

The adverse weather conditions meant the royal arrived a little later than scheduled but palace aides confirmed she took the two-and-a-half hour train from London Euston, traveling in first class of course.

On her arrival Kate Middleton happily mingled with scout volunteers before swiftly heading into the warm to have a cooking lesson, later today she will put her newly-acquired skills into practice and work with Cub and Beaver Scouts.

The visit culimates a busy few days for the Duchess who visited Child Bereavement UK earler this week with Prince William, before joining The Queen to mark 150 years of the underground.

We hope she puts her feet up this weekend!
