Say cheese! Kate Middleton recently attended the National Portrait Gallery’s Hospital Programme at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital for a creative workshop for children and turned one little boy into a photographer. The event was established to show how art can aid in children’s happiness and health, and the mother-of-three appeared joyful as she worked with the kids on doing just that.
At one point in the event, the 38-year-old was handed a beautiful red and white wreath, which she proudly posed with while a 10-year-old heart patient, Luke Wheeler-Widdison, snapped her photo on a blue polaroid camera. The little boy appeared over-the-moon with excitement as he examined his printed photo with pride.
Later on, Luke’s four-year-old sister Savannah was seen gazing at the polaroid photo alongside The Duchess.
Throughout the event, Kate was seen grinning ear-to-ear as she worked with the children on various art projects. At one point, she was seen gazing lovingly at a child who was using a glue stick to complete her work of art. Later on, she was seen on bended knee-shaking hands with a sweet little girl who appeared to be in awe of the royal.
According to the official Kensington Royal Instagram page, “The Duchess joined children and their families who were taking part in a ‘Playful Portraits’ workshop, and helped them to make sets and characters for their own pop-up theatres! 🎭🎨 The Duchess also visited Evelina’s Beach Ward to meet children who were taking part in the workshop at their bedsides.”
It looks like she — and the children at the event — had an incredible time!
