Is Kate a fan of colouring in?
The Duchess of Cambridge is well known for love and interest in art.
Not only did she study History of Art at university in St.Andrews where she met Prince William, she is now a royal patron of the National Portrait Gallery as part of her role as the Duchess of Cambridge.
She even made a special trip to the Mauritshuis gallery in Holland on her first official solo trip abroad to view some of her favourite paintings.
As well as her royal duties, where the Duchess is always happy to get stuck in to arts and crafts at official events, Kate also enjoys arts such as photography and painting in her spare time.
We already knew that Kate had a keen eye for photography. The Duchess showed off her talent when she shared sweet pictures of Princess Charlotte that she snapped earlier this year. Adorable!
However, Prince William has now revealed that Kate also uses her love of art to wind down after a long or stressful day. Her hobby of choice? Colouring in!
Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge is also a fan of the hugely popular adult colouring books. The on-trend books rose to popularity thanks to their ability to reduce stress and calm the mind.
Speaking to Illustrator Johanna Basford, author of “colour therapy” book ‘Secret Garden’, the Duke divulged Kate’s passion for colouring.
“Prince William actually said that his wife likes to colour in the Secret Garden, which was really sweet” Johanna revealed.
Basford was picking up an OBE for services to art and entrepreneurship at Buckingham Palace.
