Baby is on board!
Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, attended a national celebration at Windsor Castle, Berkshire, for Scouts who have achieved their Queen’s Scout Awards today (April 21, 2013).
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge handed out Scouting honors in wearing a Mulberry Frayed Coat in Mint Cotton Tweed, a Whiteley Cappuccino hat and her LK Bennett sledge heels. Prior to the parade of scouts, Kate joined the senior scouts, who assembled in St George’s Chapel at 11am for a Matins service.
The pregnant wife of Prince William met with young people from across Britain who have received the Queen’s Scout Award. To earn this accolade, youngsters must complete a range of activities including camping, exploring and taking part in outdoor activities.
The day celebrates those who have given an outstanding contribution to Scouting as well as those who have achieved the Queen’s Scout Award. The award is gained through a variety of tasks including a year’s community service, a challenging four day expedition and a residential project.
On Tuesday April 23, the Duchess will visit The Willows Primary School in Wythenshawe, Manchester, where she will launch a new charity initiative focused on children who have parents dealing with substance abuse and addictions.
