The Duchess of Cambridge makes surprise appearance at Christmas tree event

The Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise appearance at a Christmas tree farm today. The mum-of-three delighted families when she arrived in Buckinghamshire to join families and children who are supported by Family Action.

This afternoon, it was announced that Kate would become Royal Patron of Family Action. Queen Elizabeth has passed the patronage to The Duchess having held the role for over 65 years. The Queen took the patronage over from Queen Mary in 1953.

Kate’s festive outing marked her wonderful news. During her visit, the doting mum joined children taking part in Christmas activities, including making decorations and eco-friendly reindeer food.

The Duchess also helped children post their Santa letters to the North Pole and even helped families pick out their very own Christmas trees.

Kate and the families then headed back inside to warm up with a hot chocolate.

The Duchess looked as festive as ever in a green jumper and red jacket. She also wore blue jeans and hiking boots for the Christmas outing.

There’s no doubt the mum will continue to do incredible work as the new Royal Patron of Family Action. The organisation was founded in 1869 in order to help families in difficulty by giving them practical help and support.

Their aim is to ensure that families are free from disadvantage and social isolation.
