She joined 150 young people from the Art Room, a charity that Kate, 30, volunteers with, aimed at 5 to 16-year-olds who experience emotional and behavioral difficulties.
The group was treated to a special production of C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by Threesixty Entertainment in the historic grounds of Kensington Gardens.
"Did you see all the animals on stilts? Wasn't it amazing?" she asked the children, adding, "I just loved the way it is held in a tent – really clever."
Kate was also overheard telling the kids, "Some of the characters are really quite frightening. I hope you [didn't] get too scared."
