Here’s what Duchess Kate did in two secret royal engagements this week

By Meaghan Wray

The Duchess of Cambridge has had a busy week as she gears up to become an aunt to Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal baby. Last Thursday (April 25), she stepped out with her brother-in-law for the ANZAC Day service at Westminster Abbey and stopped by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF) the next Wednesday (May 1). But she also found time for two secret engagements on Tuesday (April 30)!

The mom of three paid visits to the Sayers Croft Wildlife Garden and Forest School and hosted a reception for members of her Early Years Steering Group at Kensington Palace later the same day. The Steering Group, which is spearheaded by The Royal Foundation, aims to build a better society for children as they grow up.

Kate last visited Sayers Croft in October 2018. It was her first outing after returning from maternity leave, and she spent some time with a group of adorable kids as they tended to the gardens and searched for little bugs in the grass. Many will remember a sweet moment she had with one little girl named Amwaar, 4, who managed to score a hug from the future Queen Consort!
