The Duchess became the museum’s patron in 2013
The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for a surprise engagement at the Natural History Museum in London on Wednesday morning. Kate, 37, visited the museum’s Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity to hear how it is championing and helping to protect UK wildlife.
The Angela Marmont Centre (AMC) is a unique scientific hub located in the Natural History Museum that is dedicated to the study of the UK’s natural world. AMC staff work with colleagues from the museum to carry out a range of scientific research, including analysis of environmental DNA. During her engagement, the Duchess viewed some of the museum’s specimens and saw DNA sequencing in action.
The mother-of-three nailed her autumnal look, opting for forest green Jigsaw culottes and a Warehouse maroon coloured top. Kate wore her trusty Tod’s pumps and accessorised with her Chanel handbag.
The museum visit ties in with Kate’s work on childhood development and how nature and the outdoors can have a positive impact on physical and mental well-being. Alongside its national programme of activity, The Natural History Museum aims to inspire its millions of visitors to act for nature.
