Kate and Prince George's day out at the Natural History Museum

Share this:

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, may have a busy schedule following her return to royal duties, but she will always make time for her children. The 33-year-old took Prince George to the Natural History Museum on 22 October, where they were spotted exploring Hintze Hall which houses the 292-bone cast of a Diplodocus dinosaur skeleton.

The Duchess was dressed down in a black jumper and patterned trousers, while George looked sweet in a navy jumper and trousers. The two-year-old held hands with his mother as they walked around, and is said to have gone mostly unnoticed during their day out.

Rimi Rahman, one member of the public who saw the royal visitors at the museum, told People: "She was holding George's hand, showing him around and talking to one of the people who worked there. People didn't really notice her at all. They went all around the dinosaur gallery – George looked so cute and little, his hair is so nice. He looked so happy."

The museum confirmed that Kate, their royal patron, had paid a visit with her son.

It is not the first time the young Prince has paid a visit to the museum; George also enjoyed a day out there shortly before he turned one, with the museum's butterfly exhibition serving as the setting for his official first birthday photos.

Kate's day out with Prince George came during a full of of official engagements with Prince William and Prince Harry. As well as attending their first ever state banquet at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, Kate and William joined China's President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan to attend the "Creative Collaborations" exhibition at Lancaster House on Wednesday.

The royal couple then enjoyed a walk down memory lane on Thursday evening by spending the night in St Andrews, where they first met, before visiting Dundee on Friday. William and Kate's whirlwind week was capped off when they attended the world premiere of Spectre on Monday evening.
