The Duchess of Cambridge cut a relaxed figure as she arrived for a visit to the Natural History Museum in London today. 

Casual Kate, 39, who studied art history at university and has been patron of the attraction since 2013, dressed down in pair of blue cropped jeans, a Ralph Lauren white vest top and £1,795 salmon-coloured blazer by CHLOÉ, which features gathered waist, notched lapels and oversized cargo pockets.

Typically stylish, the mother-of-three completed her paired-back look with her favourite £90 Veja trainers and accessorised with a gold necklace by Daniella Draper and dainty gold hoop earrings. 

The natural beauty, who wore her soft brunette locks in a bouncy blow dry, opted for just a light dusting of pink blusher and pink lip tint, while Princess Diana’s famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring gleamed on Kate’s finger.

The Duchess of Cambridge took a tour of the Natural History Museum’s wildlife gardens, where she met local school children and learnt more about how communities across the UK will benefit from the Urban Nature Project (UNP), which the Museum is launching later this year. 

Kate was met by Museum Director, Dr Doug Gurr, who explained how the project is helping people to reconnect with the natural world and find the solutions urgently needed to protect the planet’s future. 

Working with partner museums and wildlife organisations across the UK, the project will engage the nation with the importance of nature in towns and cities, and produce practical tools for supporting the wildlife that lives around us.

The Duchess heard more about the plans for the project and the work that is being carried out to transform the Natural History Museum gardens into a cutting-edge research centre, which will include outdoor classrooms and a living lab, to deliver science and learning programmes for young people, schools and families across the country.

Kate also visited the Museum’s Wildlife Garden and joined local schoolchildren taking part in nature activities, including spider-making and an interactive story-telling exercise.

The Natural History Museum is both a world-leading science research centre and the most visited natural history museum in Europe. The Museum works to use its global reach and influence to meet its mission to create advocates for the planet – to inform, inspire and empower everyone to make a difference for nature.  

At the end of her visit, the royal also helped staff fix an acoustic monitoring device to a cherry tree in the Wildlife Garden, which will record ambient sound to help Museum scientists to investigate patterns of bird, mammal and insect activity within the garden. 

Data collected by the device, which will stay onsite throughout the summer, will be analysed used as part of the UNP National Schools Programme which launches in September.

The Urban Nature Project (UNP), which the Museum is launching later this year, will see the Museum’s five-acre grounds transformed into a globally relevant urban nature epicentre complete with outdoor classrooms, a ‘living lab’ and a weatherproof cast of the Museum’s famous diplodocus, Dippy. Pictured, Kate today

Speaking about the visit, Dr Doug Gurr said: ‘I’m delighted to welcome Her Royal Highness here today as we share some of the work the Urban Nature Project is doing to engage young people with the nature on their doorsteps.

‘Biodiversity, especially in urban settings, is under threat like never before. To survive, it needs young people to grow up with a desire to protect it. But without feeling excited by and engaged with the green spaces around them, this is in jeopardy. That is why this project is crucial for our urban green spaces and all the species who call it home.’

The visit coincides with the launch today of the Museum’s Annual Review, Solutions for Nature and from Nature which celebrates some of the key Museum partnerships, research and discoveries over the last year.  

From influential biodiversity research shared with the government, the 503 new species Museum scientists described in 2020 or the illustrious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards for which Her Royal Highness announced the winner – the annual review highlights how the Museum is making a lasting and positive difference to our global future.

As part of her longstanding work on early childhood, The Duchess of Cambridge believes that spending time outdoors plays a pivotal role in children’s future health and happiness, building foundations that last through childhood and over a lifetime.

Through her Back to Nature gardens, which were displayed in 2019 at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, and the subsequent installation of the Back to Nature play garden at RHS Wisley, Kate aimed to highlight how spending time outdoors can enrich a child’s early development by providing an environment that encourages active exploration and the opportunity to form and strengthen positive relationships.

Last week, The Duchess launched The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood which also published its inaugural report, Big Change Starts Small. 

It brings together leading sector research in one place and underlines the critical lifelong impact of the early years on individuals, our economy and society at large. 

The report also set forth a number of recommendations, including the need for society as a whole to come together to create safe, healthy and nurturing environments and experiences for children, including the provision of easy access to nature and outdoor space.
