Kate's Date Night With 150 Kids

Duchess Kate had a date with 150 kids from her patronage The Art Room this evening. She invited the children for a production of 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' in Kensington Gardens. Daily Mail Royal Correspondent Rebecca English was at the event and very kindly shared news and photos via Twitter.

 Prince William opted to stay in and watch the football (no doubt the Prince will be pleased England beat Sweden 3-2).

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is described as 'an enchanting theatrical experience'. Allowing children to open a door and enter a spectacular new world with their favourite characters as they journey through the magical land of Narnia. Set against the backdrop of Kensington Palace this is a very special show.

Kate joked with the children asking if the show had been too scary for them:

'No screaming too loud. I can now see your faces in the crowd so if you scream I know who you are'.

During the interval she said to the children:

'Did you see all the animals on stilts and wasn't Lucy cute? Wasn't it amazing? I just loved the way it is held in a tent. Really clever. What I really want to know is have any of you tried turkish delight?'.

The Duchess met with the cast backstage after the show.

 Kate commented that she loved the fact that the event was only a hop from her house.

Many of the children had never seen a show before so it was a memorable night for them. Lovely to see Kate taking her role as patron so seriously. I do believe she works incredibly well with children.

The Art Room said the children had a 'wonderful evening' with Kate.
