Kate Middleton - Kate Middleton Attends The Scout Awards

Subscribe Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton, The Duchess Of Cambridge, was on hand to honour Scouts at Windsor Castle over the weekend, with the royal being called a “role model” for the youngsters who were there to receive recognition for feats of bravery and gallantry.

According to Sky News, 2,800 new adult volunteers have signed up to the Scouts since Middleton herself joined. The Duchess is of course heavily pregnant at the moment but has been undertaking a huge amount of charity and ambassadorial work regardless. Chief Scout, adventurer and TV star Bear Grylls said to Sky News: "The Duchess is an incredible role model and she helps us show that Scouting's not just for boys. She's also such a generous volunteer and everyone is so excited to have her in the Scouting family. Many people have followed her lead and are getting involved and enjoying the adventure."

Notable honourees included 17-year-old Lee Craven, who apparently helped drag a friend from an icy canal on one of the coldest days of the year. Explaining the situation, Craven commented "I hooked my feet under a tree stump and tried to reach for his hand. It was pitch black but I managed to pull him to the side to safety. It was quite easy because of the adrenalin." Daniel Bean, 16, from the Isle of Wight, was given an award for going to the aid of a suicidal woman who had slit her wrist meanwhile. He was walking along a cliff top when he spotted the woman and commented “I had my phone on me and luckily I had a signal, so I called an ambulance and they and the police came down."
