Kate joins inner-city children on camping trip
(CBS News) It was a busy weekend for the Duchess of Cambridge.
One day after attending the annual Trooping the Colour parade in London with other members of the royal family, she joined inner-city schoolchildren on a camping trip in Kent, England.
Kate, 30, spent time with the group of 28 children, ages 8 and 9, who were building tents and making campfires in the countryside to help develop their confidence and teamwork skills, the Daily Mail reports. The "Expanding Horizons" trip was organized by U.K. education charity ARK.
The dressed-down duchess reportedly wore jeans and a sweater from Zara, a Burberry shirt, a waterproof vest by outdoor company Really Wild and boots by French company Le Chameau for her stop in the woods.
Kate was photographed smiling and interacting with the children during the visit, and reportedly answered questions about her life as a royal.
One of the children reportedly made her laugh when he held open the flap to his tent and said, "After you."
"What a gentleman," Kate said, according to the Daily Mail.
When some of the children asked about her job, she replied, "It's very busy and great fun but I am very well looked after."
Another child reportedly asked how long Kate would sit on the throne. She responded, "It's not actually my job yet!"
Tigerlily Smith, 8, told the paper the duchess was "lovely."
"We asked how it felt to be a princess and she said it was very nice and she got to visit lots of countries but hadn't seen as many as William," Smith revealed. "She said William was very sweet and kind and spoiled her."
