Kate Middleton Holds Court with the Kids at Magic Garden Opening

It was a busy day for the Duchess of Cambridge.

The always lovely Kate Middleton had a full day of planned events on Wednesday, starting with the opening of a new children’s play area at the Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace, a garden that takes its inspiration from myths and legends of the Tudor Court.

Kate played with kids on battlements, towers, a “dragon’s nest” and much more. According to Daily Mail, the Magic Garden has been six years in the making and the Historic Royal Palaces’ gardens team describes it as an “exciting new chapter” to the Palace’s 500-year history.

Later, the Duchess attended a lunch reception for the Anna Freud Centre in support of a new center for children’s mental health.

Then, in the evening, Kate visited the National Portrait Gallery to view her much talked about new pictures as part of the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition. Whew! Bet she sleeps well tonight.
