Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and Camilla received a royal welcome when they visited Dulwich Picture Gallery.
Kate looked the part on her first public outing with the Prince of Wales. The Duchess of Cornwall joined the pair for a rapturous reception.
Smiles all round... Kate looks more comfortable and confident as a royal with every public appearance she makes.
While there, Kate, Charles and Camilla met many pupils partaking in the Great Art Quest. The programme introduces children to local galleries, professional artists and storytellers.
As the trio took part in an art class with the children, Camilla got the biggest laugh of the day. 'I've got [Charles] well-trained with an iron,' she joked to a bystander.
Catherine is known for her passion for the arts. The 30-year-old royal graduated from St Andrews University with an art history degree.
Kate looked as elegant as ever, wearing a beautiful grey Orla Kiely dress with black floral patterns. Orla Kiely is fast becoming one of the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite designers, and it's easy to see why!
We love the fact that everytime Kate makes a public appearance, she takes the time to chat with the locals!
They learnt about the Children & the Arts Face Britain project. Portraits from children aged four to 16 will create a montage image of The Queen, which will be projected on to the front of Buckingham Palace to herald the start of the Jubilee and Olympic celebrations in April.
A royal welcome! The crowd jostled to get a good look at the Duchess of Cambridge... And who can blame them!
A Clarence House spokesman confirmed the trip was arranged because of Kate and Charles’ mutual interest in the arts, following 'a conversation between a father-in-law and daughter-in-law,' adding: 'They have a shared interest in art, art therapy and children.'
