Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has been seen sharing a public engagement with two survivors of the Holocaust in the beautiful Lake District Tuesday.

The royal mum-of-three was all smiles as she laughed and got to know two of the famous “Windermere Children” during a boat trip around Lake Windermere.

The 39 year old royal chose to wear a tweed belted jacket for the occasion, pairing it with a beige coloured sweater underneath and plain black trousers.

She finished off the outfit with a pair of black walking boots.

The Duchess styled her long brunette locks into loose waves as she gave her full attention to hearing about the lives and stories of the special guests.

The Windermere Children were a group of 300 child Holocaust survivors who travelled to the Lake District to stay in 1945.

They had a period of recuperation and recovery after the horror experience at the evil concentration camps.


Ahead of travelling up north to the county of Cumbria, the Royal shared her excitement for what was coming on hers and Prince William's, the Duke of Cambridge, official Twitter.

"Looking forward to a day spent outdoors in this beautiful landscape!" the Duchess tweeted.

She also shared a snap of her enjoying a hike through the rocky countryside with another group who were clearly thrilled to spend time with her.

During the day's outings, Kate went on to visit the Windermere Adventure Training Centre with RAF Cadets, and she donned an olive green puffa jacket and a helmet as she got hooked up to the course.

The royal grinned and joked along with the Cadets as she got stuck in to the activities, and was even seen abseiling down a rock face.

It comes as last week the Duchess also visited RAF Brize Norton airbase in the Cotswolds to meet and thank some of the service men and women for their incredible efforts in the operation to rescue and bring home the thousands of Afghan people back to the UK.

During her visit, Kate stepped onboard some of the epic fighter planes and was seen posing for pictures with the pilots.
