The Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a secret trip to the theatre last night – leaving her husband at home, like millions of men, watching the football.
While Prince William sat in front of the television at Kensington Palace with a few beers glued to England’s European Cup match, Kate was taking 150 children from one of her charities, The Art Room, to see a production of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
The Art Room uses the arts as therapy for children with emotional and behavioral challenges.
The show is a favorite for many, the CS Lewis tale.
It is being done in a new facility, the ThreeSixty Theatre in Kensington Gardens Park.
It looks like a fabulous venue and amazing production.
“What I want to know is has anyone tried Turkish Delight?” asked the group of kids, referring to the sweet treat in C. S. Lewis’s famous book.
“No screaming too loudly,” she also said. “I can now see your faces in the crowd so if you scream I know who you are!”

It looked like the Duchess wore the Helena Blazer by Whistles.
Whistles ‘Helena’ Cropped Jacket
The piece is navy, with a waterfall-style front and three-quarter sleeves.
This is the same jacket seen on Kate with the silly In Touch cover story of last week, we want to thank WKW Facebook friend Hannah, she noted this was the jacket last week when the magazine came out.

Kate’s dress tonight was by Zara, some believe it is the same frock previously worn by Pippa Middleton, but I don’t think that is the case. When we know which dress it is we will update the post. This angle provides a better look at the back of the dress.
