This evening, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) visited the North Wootton scout hut in Kings Lynn, Norfolk.
She helped the group celebrate the Cub Scouts’ 100th anniversary.
Kate took part in a range of activities during the special anniversary party. Each activity is designed to help the Cubs learn vital life skills.
Kate took part in the parachute game. This game helps the Cubs work together as a team and learn new skills.
Then, Kate helped the children ice special “Cub cakes”.
Next, the Cub Scouts Pack worked together to create a “wall of positivity.” This activity teaches Cubs to respect themselves and others. Each Cub needs to write down things they’re good at and promises to help other people. Kate helped two girls with their messages:
Kate added her own message too, writing that she’s good at “building campfires”.
Next, Kate took part in a first aid lesson. The Cub Scouts learned how to tie a sling, which is a skill that can make a real difference in an emergency.
Nearly 160,000 Cubs across the UK renewed their Cub Promise this week for the organisation’s 100th anniversary. Kate helped these Cubs renew their promise too:
Kate dressed in a casual outfit for the Cub Scout party.
The relaxed fit sweater is made from light grey mid-weight cashmere and features ribbing detail on the turtleneck, cuffs and hem. The sleeves are split open at the cuffs too.
The Kate effect strikes again! The sweater sold out within around three to four hours. It did cost $210 USD / £170 GBP.
