With Covid-19 restrictions easing in the UK, the royal family have begun to do more in-person engagements.

On Thursday, February 3, the Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Charles and Camilla in a rare joined outing in London.

The senior royals visited Trinity Bouy Wharf, where they were shown around The Prince’s Foundation’s training site for arts and culture.

It is understood that Kate had been personally invited to attend the event by her father-in-law, Prince Charles, because of their “shared interest and longstanding support of the arts and creative industries.” 

According to The DailyMail, this visit was “especially significant” since it was the Prince of Wales’s invitation to showcase the work of his Foundation. 

Though the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, has joined Prince Charles, 73, and Camilla, 74, in numerous royal engagements alongside her husband Prince William, 39, this outing also marks the first time since 2012 since the trio have been seen without him.

During the meet, the three met with students working on geometry and monastic projects as well as fashion, fine art, photography, sculpture and animation work. 

“They were really interested in observing those skills and making sure that there is quality education like this out there for students to access,”  Daniel McAulifee, education director at The Prince’s Foundation, tells Town and Country Magazine. “The Duchess of Cambridge was very impressed with the quality of drawing and she really loved the textiles,” he added.

Speaking to stone carving teacher, Lily Marsh, Prince Charles expressed his feeling about the “importance of safeguarding traditional building skills for the future generations.”

The Foundation’s centre at Trinity Bouy Wharf offers classes in traditional building skills such as thatching, blacksmithing and stonemasonry. 

This comes after Kate wowed royal fans on Wednesday with her rugby skills during a training session with the England squad, at Twickenham stadium.
