The Duchess of Cambridge spent last evening under a tent in the Kensington Gardens, watching a dazzling production of a C.S. Lewis classic: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
The audience was packed with 150 school children from The Art Room, a charity of which Kate is a patron .
The Duchess made an effort to talk to both the children and the cast members at the performance, which was created by theatre company ThreeSixty.
“Having a royal patron like the Duchess of Cambridge is fantastic for a small charity like us,” Juli Beattie, founder and director of The Art Room told media. “To see the children’s reaction was overwhelming. It was a fantastic visual experience for all of them.”
