Kate Middleton, along with Prince William and Prince Harry, spent time this week with children from various charities in London this week!
According to Daily Mail, the royals came together Monday at BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) to spend time with the children from the various charities that they support. Kate, William, and Harry, along with the kids, were able to watch the premiere of the new film by British animators Aardman, Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas, and take part in a model making workshop and craft activities session surrounding the movie. They took time doing crafts, taking photographs, and playing games with the children, including playing welly wanging, which apparently is a game of throwing a wellington boot as far as you can.
The event was a part of the royals’ Charities Forum, a collection of more than 30 organizations of which William, Kate and Harry are patrons or work closely with. It aims to bring their individual charitable interests together and to explore how they could best lend their support to them all in an effective and efficient way.
From the pictures, it looks like they all had a great time! The children were clearly excited to see and spend time with them. I love to see Kate, William, and Harry out and about, participating in charity events, especially with kids. I know it’s a part of their job as royals, but it always seems to come from a truly genuine place for them to reach out and assist those in their country, even with their already hectic schedules.
