Kate Middleton has been keeping busy with royal engagements all year long, and on Tuesday, the duchess paid a special visit to the Foundling Museum in London. Kate, who is currently expecting her third child with Prince William, did some arts and crafts with the local nursery kids and learned about how the museum provides young people with new skills and an understanding of history. The Foundling Museum celebrates the history of the Foundling Hospital, which was established back in 1739 by philanthropist Thomas Coram to care for babies who were at risk of being abandoned. It is the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery.
Kate’s philanthropic outing comes just a day after Prince Harry announced his engagement to actress Meghan Markle. During her visit, Kate also couldn’t help but gush over her brother-in-law’s exciting engagement news, telling reporters, “William and I are absolutely thrilled. It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.” Kensington Palace also tweeted out Will and Kate’s well-wishes shortly after the news broke on Monday.
