The Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite past-time with the kids revealed

Duchess Catherine is making the most of the summer holidays as she and the children have been spotted enjoying painting with a twist.

The Duchess of Cambridge has proved she’s a hands-on mother as she spends quality time with Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

Like other parents, Catherine, 38, has no doubt been thinking of ways to keep her children entertained during the summer holidays, as the family continue to power through the pandemic at their Amner Hall home in Norfolk.

And according to royal fan Twitter account, @kateroyalcloset, the mum-of-three was keen to get the kids’ creative juices flowing during a Saturday afternoon activity.

The Cambridge’s were spotted at Mable’s Paint Pot in Burnham Market on Saturday.

The centre is described as a “Pot Painting and Ceramic Crafts centre for people of all ages in a truly enchanting and inspiring setting” which provides “fantastic fun for all the family”.

Not only can families partake in arts and crafts at the centre, it’s also home to a traditional sweet shop too.

It’s no doubt a welcome distraction for the Duchess to be able to take the children out and about in Norfolk, after months in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Cambridge’s faced struggles just like the rest of us during lockdown and insisted their royal status hasn’t prevented them from facing the challenges of home schooling.

The couple previously admitted they’d created a “pretty strict routine,” but that doesn’t mean fun is off the cards for the three kids.

"You get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things you've done in that day: you pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake," Kate explained.

"You get to the end of the day – they've had a lovely time – but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day."

Prince William also detailed all the ways they’ve been keeping them occupied.

“We've been for the odd walk, odd bike ride as well, keeping the children busy and active and healthy. We haven't quite done the Joe Wicks workout that everyone else seems to be doing, but we aren't far off that probably. That might happen at some point."
