The re-entry of crowned heads is specially charged. After enjoying her summer with her family, Kate Middleton is back at work. And the Duchess is on all fronts.

This Tuesday, September 29, in fact, Kate Middleton visited a group of scouts in London. And the least we can say is that she was particularly in her element. For the occasion, she had bet on a comfortable outfit: basic jeans, one of her favorite vests, as well as a scout jacket to meet wolf cubs and beavers in the west of the English capital. The Duchess, who has often spoken of her love of the great outdoors, joined the children in roasting marshmallows and writing letters to send to residents of care centers.
And this commitment is special for Kate Middleton, who has just been appointed co-chair of the British Boy Scouts alongside Elizabeth II’s cousin, the Duke of Kent, who has held the post since 1975. “For many children and young people, the The Scout Association plays a key role in building relationships and developing the skills they need to be successful later in life, explained the Duchess of Cambridge, especially invested in youth development. volunteering with scouts in Anglesey eight years ago I was struck by the huge impact the organization has on inspiring young people to support their communities and achieve their goals. ” She also spoke about her new role in this association: “I am delighted to join The Duke of Kent as the association co-chair and look forward to working with Scouts across the country as they strive to make a positive difference in our society “.
