Kate Middleton has revealed details of a secret family holiday she went on with Prince William and their three little ones – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The mum-of-three travelled to Keswick in Cumbria, for a royal engagement alongside husband William.
During their royal visit, the couple visited Deepdale Hall Farm to try their hand at sheep shearing and joined in a environmental educational session on the Ullswater Way.
They also visited the market square of Keswick and while meeting well-wishers, Kate spilled the beans on the Cambridges’ secret family trip to that area.
According to HELLO! magazine, one well-wisher said: ‘She said that it was raining a lot and was a long way from their home in Norfolk, but they love it here.’
Jack Mumberson, an 11-year-old schoolboy added: ‘She said that her children love coming here and walking in the fells. She told us how nice the Lake District was and how lucky we were to live so close to the mountains.’
It seems like Kate wanted to create the same memories she cherished from her own childhood for her kids.
She recently revealed one of favourite memories of playing outside happened in the Lake District, as she left a note at the woodland garden she helped design at Chelsea Flower Show.
Kate hand wrote on a brown paper tag: ‘In boulder hopping in the Lake District. Catherine.’
As well as making their sure their children have plenty of time to play outside, Kate and William both campaign to raise awareness about the benefits of letting children be surrounded by nature – both mentally and physically.
She said in an interview with gardener Monty Don for the BBC: ‘I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children.
‘I really hope that this woodland that we have created inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.’
George, Charlotte and Louis also helped mum Kate in her garden project by collecting moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate it so we wonder if they brought any back from their holiday…
