With only a matter of weeks left to go before she becomes a mum of two, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, took time out to make sure she had some special mother-son time with her firstborn, Prince George. The two made a private trip to London's popular Science Museum on Thursday, where they mainly visited at the museum's Pattern Pod.
Speaking to People magazine, a source who works at the museum said that Kate and George "seemed to enjoy themselves" with the pair spending a few hours at the museum joined only by personal protection officers.

The source added: "It's lovely that she feels she can bring George here."
The museum's website reveals that the Pattern Pod is a "multi-sensory gallery" which "encourages excitement and curiosity about patterns in the world around us." It goes on to say that it "also shows that patterns are just not visual - there are sound patterns, time patterns, movement patterns and texture patterns too."
It's not the first time that Kate and George have gone incognito for an outing - in December, Kate took George to Hyde Park's famous Winter Wonderland.
An insider confirmed the news to HELLO! magazine, revealing: "They spent an hour together in Santa Land, enjoying a ride on the teacup ride, and looked like they were having a fantastic time."

The short day trip for the two comes as Kate prepares to welcome her second child with Prince William. The pair have remained coy regarding their due date, however speaking at a charity engagement on Wednesday, Kate gave more of a clue as to when her child will be born, telling guests "mid-to-end of April".
"I told her she is beautiful and that she's got a tiny little bump," said volunteer Christie Osborne, 49. "I asked when her baby is due and she said mid-to-end of April."
Kate, who was pictured cradling her baby bump during the engagement, was also overheard saying: "Not long to go now."
