Kate enjoys festive fun as she's named Family Action royal patron

She teamed the merry color combo with a pair of dark jeans and sturdy Bergaus boots ($138) - an ideal choice for a day spent picking out Christmas trees with children from the Family Action Charity, of which she was just named patron, at the at the Peterley Manor Farm. After finding some festive trees, which families will take to schools run by the charity in Peterborough, they moved back inside to make hot chocolate.

"The charity works directly with vulnerable or disadvantaged children and families, and provides services including perinatal mental health services, counselling and therapeutic support, and the mentoring of children, young people and adults".

Kate attended the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday and was snapped chatting to the world's dignitaries.

He added, "I have seen the Duchess's passionate support for disadvantaged families first hand and have been impressed by her leadership in understanding and promoting the vital importance of the Early Years".

To mark the occasion, Kate was joined by families and children supported by Family Action for Christmas activities at the farm. The role was previously held by the Queen.

Kate Middleton had some holiday fun with children and families on Wednesday as she announced a new royal role given to her by Queen Elizabeth.


Family Action was created in 1869 and The Queen took over the role in 1953 from Queen Mary.

The proud mother-of-three frolicked making eco-friendly reindeer meals, selecting Christmas bushes and crafting decorations through the festive outing.

The Duchess beforehand visited Household Motion's Lewisham base in January 2019 the place she launched the charity's nationwide help line, FamilyLine.

"Everyone at Family Action would like to extend our thanks to Her Majesty for her steadfast support and encouragement to us over so many years".
