The Duchess of Cambridge showcased her skills as she joined young children at a workshop at Evelina London children's hospital to see how the creative arts can support children's health, well-being and happiness on Tuesday. The creative workshops are run by the National Portrait Gallery, who collaborate with play specialists from Evelina London to take artists into the hospital to host activities with children of all ages, along with their siblings and parents.
