Kate Middleton to make return from maternity leave with visit to London forest school
Kate Middleton is making her return from maternity leave with a visit to a forest school in London.
The Duchess of Cambridge, whose youngest child Prince Louis is just over five months old, will meet youngsters at the Paddington Recreation Ground.
Kate will see how the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden is helping children’s emotional and physical well-being.
She will join in with sessions and hear from instructors about the beneficial effects of outdoor learning.
The duchess gave birth to her youngest child Prince Louis on April 23.
Although she has appeared at events such as the RAF centenary, Trooping the Colour and Wimbledon, and celebrated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding, this is her first official solo engagement since Louis’ arrival.
The forest school, which had more than 5,500 visits by schoolchildren from across Westminster and neighbouring boroughs last year, gives inner city children the chance to engage with the natural world.
When the duchess visited a primary school in south-west London last November to see its gardening projects, she told pupils she had “fond memories” of being outdoors as a child and was passing that passion on to her own children.
