The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has had a very busy few days.
Between attending the annual Trooping of the Colour and spending time with Prince William - who is celebrating his 30th birthday this week - and his dog Lupo at the Beaufort Polo Club, Kate spoke to some inner-city Kent school children about what it's really like to be a princess.
The Duchess, 30, traded in her high heels for Wellington boots on Sunday as she joined 28 students from north Westminster, London on their outdoor adventure in Wrotham, Kent.
Kate, who dressed in Le Chameau boots (worth over $450!) and Zara jeans, told the students of her life as royalty, with eight-year-old Tigerlily Smith reporting after her conversation with the duchess:
"She said she got to visit lots of countries but hadn’t seen as many as William. She said William was very sweet and kind and spoiled her."
Kate told the children of her life as a princess: "It's very busy and great fun but I am very well looked after."
And she continued to be looked after during camp when eight-year-old Zahid Shanvere held open his tent flap for the Duchess and said: "After you", which made the duchess laugh, the Daily Mail reports.
"What a gentleman," she said.
Kate and the campers were shown how to make bread by wrapping it around a stick, which Kate tasted and said was "very nice".
When asked how long she would sit on the throne for, Kate replied to the kids:
"It's not actually my job yet!"
She helped the eight and nine-year-olds make a campfire and set up tents for the weekend trip, which was designed to help the children build teamwork skills and confidence.
The students were from U.K. charity ARK's King Solomon Academy Primary, which is supported by The Foundation of Princes William and Harry.
ARK spokesperson Lesley Smith said of the children's experience:
"Many of the children here live in flats with no gardens and little area to play. This has been such an experience for them."
