Strike a pose! Duchess Kate beams for photographs at children’s hospital

The Duchess of Cambridge made herself busy by getting into an arts and crafts session as she visited Evelina London Children’s Hospital today.

Dressed in a Dolce & Gabbana jacket and skirt, Kate posed for polaroid photos and helped cut-out paper figurines with young patients and their families.

The royal was also given a handmade “rag wreath” by Luke Wheeler-Waddison, 10, and his little sister Savannah, four, which she promised to put up in her daughter Princess Charlotte’s room.

“Wow! That’s so lovely. Charlotte will love this,” Kate said after she was told it took the siblings close to four hours to make.

She also happily posed for a photograph taken by Luke using a polaroid camera which he was proudly showing off.

The Duchess visited the hospital as not only is she a patron for them but also for the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) which runs creative arts workshops for young patients at hospitals across London.

The royal looked polished and put together as she opted for a tweed two-piece from Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana.

Kate first wore the ensemble in February last year, but this time she changed things up by pairing it with black, Gianvito Rossi heels and her Mappin & Webb earrings.
