Kate Middleton chooses Christmas trees as her new role as patron of charity, Family Action.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The Duchess of Cambridge was glowing as she visited Peterley Manor Farm in Buckinghamshire to spend time with the families supported by Family Action. 

Kensington Palace announced in a statement today that the Queen is passing on the patronage after 65 years. Family Action was founded in 1869 to help families in difficulty by giving them practical help and support.

The Duchess joined in the festivities making eco-friendly reindeer food, crafting decorations for the Christmas trees and exploring the Elf’s workshop. 

Laughing at one little boy who held his hand up to get her attention, saying: ‘Me, me,’ The Duchess stroked his cheek and said: ‘You remind me of my little Louis, he keeps saying: “Me, me, me and he wants to come everywhere with me”.’ 

The Duchess explored the Farm, writing letters to Santa with the children and singing to Christmas carols. She also took the time to speak with the parents about the stresses of Christmas. The Duchess said: ‘It is stressful, you want to give them the opportunities to enjoy all aspects of it. There is a lot of pressure that Christmas has to be perfect.’

After finding their trees, the group then made hot chocolate as the Duchess spoke with some of the charity’s staff and support workers. As she handed round marshmallows to the children, one girl asked her: ‘Would you like one?’ ‘I’d love one, I’m going to have a pink one, delicious,’ said the Duchess.
