Kate Middleton will attend a special training day with the scouts on Friday
Kate Middleton won’t let her baby bump slow her down as she commits to a fourth official engagement this week. On Friday the Duchess of Cambridge will volunteer along with scout leaders at a special training event at the Great Tower Scout Camp at Newby Bridge in Cumbria.
During her visit Kate Middleton will be able to chat to Cub Scouts, aged 8-10, who will be taking part in the special Pack Holiday event. They’ll be plenty of activity for the royal to watch including seeing the kids relishing in tree climbing, outdoor cooking and fire lighting.
Of course they’ll be under excellent adult supervision and who better to oversee such things than the Duchess? She’ll be trained along with 24 other volunteer leaders in the morning who will then be able to put what they’ve learnt into practice with the 24 Beaver and Cub scouts.
Last year Kate Middleton confirmed the four charities she would act as royal patron to, but also became a volunteer in the Scout Association with her formal title with the association being ‘occasional helper’.
Friday’s visit will be the culmination of a busy week for the Duchess who has had a busy week of engagements. She handed out shamrocks to the 1st Battalion Irish Guards on St Patrick’s Day, met with children and workers at Child Bereavement UK charity mid-week before joining the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh for a tour of the underground on its 150th anniversary on Thursday.
We hope she will then spend the weekend relaxing!
