Duchess Kate had a busy day on Feb. 26! Royals fans saw her step out to visit the London Stadium in Stratford, East London for a SportsAid event, where she showed off her athletic skills! And it turns out in the afternoon, the Duchess of Cambridge had a secret second engagement involving Early Years.
The mom of three has had a number of surprise engagements linked to Early Years and her "5 big questions on the under 5s" survey, which saw her pop up several times across the UK in January and February.
Before the survey closed on Feb. 21, Duchess Kate visited Northern Ireland and Scotland on Feb. 12. She also surprised children with breakfast at a London nursery school on Jan. 29. The busy duchess embarked on a whirlwind 24-hour tour in January, which saw her visit Wales and England.
Feb. 26 was filled with many royal engagements. As previously mentioned, Kate first enjoyed an athletic morning, where she ran the track at London Stadium with Olympic heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill and 18-year-old up-and-coming athlete Emmanuel Oyimbo-Coker. Kate also enjoyed a judo demonstration and got to throw some punches herself!
Prince William had a day of multiple engagements in Nottinghamshire. He kicked things off by visiting Tarmac’s National Skills and Safety Park, where he met with apprentices and officially opened the centre. The Duke of Cambridge also got to drive a paving vehicle!
He then visited The Beacon Project in Mansfield, which provides support to the vulnerable and homeless. William has spoken about how his late mother, Princess Diana, once took him to visit a Centrepoint shelter in London as a child, saying it was a formative experience for him. We're happy to see the Princess of Wales's eldest son carrying on her legacy of caring for some of the most vulnerable people.
Feb. 26 was very busy for the Royal Family in general. Prince Harry stepped out to his first UK engagement since leaving the country in January to spend time with Duchess Meghan and Archie in Canada. He helped welcome guests to a Travalyst summit in Edinburgh, Scotland. At the event for his new environmental tourism initiative, he asked to be introduced as "just Harry."
The appearance is one of the last in a series of joint and individual engagements for Harry and Meghan before they officially step down from their senior royal roles on March 31. Currently, their final joint outing as senior members of the Royal Family is scheduled for March 9.
