Bear Grylls says Kate Middleton is an “Incredible Role Model” for The Scouts

It’s not only kids that can don the scout uniform and start collecting those elusive badges, you know; adults can too! Since Kate Middleton, 31, joined the Scouts last year, more than 2,800 new adult volunteers have joined up, representing the second biggest rise since 1986.

Chief Scout, TV star Bear Grylls, who was present as the pregnant Middleton honoured the achievements of hundreds of Scouts at Windsor Castle, said: "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." 17-year-old Lee Craven, from Hook, Hampshire was one of the more adventurous scouts honoured at the event. He helped drag a friend from an icy canal after he fell in in the dark. Lee said: "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."

While visibly pregnant, the Duchess hasn’t shied away from designer clothing in favour of maternity wear. She went for Mulberry coat with her now-customary nude LK Bennett heels and a tan-coloured fascinator by Whiteley that she has worn on several occasions.
