The British version of Girl Scouts is called Girl Guides and apparently Kate Middleton greatly supports their mission. So supportive that she fully expects Prince George, Princess Charlotte and even Prince Louis to join them one day.
Middleton has recently made many new friends while testing a test scouting program for younger participants who are between 4 and 6 years old. The new program would be ideal for the two older children of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Was Kate Middleton a Girl Scout?
At a recent event with the Girl Guides, Kate Middleton announced that she wanted to sign Prince George and Princess Charlotte immediately so that they could “follow in her footsteps.” When Kate Middleton was a young girl, she was a Brownie Scout.
According to People, 14-year-old Lauren Noble spoke with the duchess during the event. “She said she wanted them to enter the scouting community because she loves what it stands for – that it is a very open and inclusive way of life,” Noble explained. “She said it would be a big advantage for them to participate.”
What does Kate Middleton hope her kids learn from scouting?
Like many other parents who register their children for scouting, Prince William and Kate Middleton hope that it will teach her children the responsibility and have a good character. Never to spoil her children, the Duchess of Cambridge was apparently inspired by the work the Girls Guides did and how many badges they earned.
“She said it was very impressive that they had done so much at such a young age and how many skills they could learn,” Noble said.
Would Kate Middleton ever be a Girl Guide leader?
Although the Duchess of Cambridge is certainly busy with other assignments, it sounds like she would be an excellent leader for the girls’ guides if she chose to be one. Participants in the event were surprised at how the duchess was hands-on during the activities, including picking up leaves and branches outside and painting.
As People reported, another girls’ guide named Kameron Liddar was astonished by the work ethic of Middleton. “She became fully involved in the hand painting and ended up with a green hand. As a mother you can see she has the talents. She was very kind to them [the children] and knew what to do with it. She was not afraid of to be a bit dingy, “Liddar wondered.
Did the other Girl Guides get along with Kate Middleton?
During the event, participants reported that the Duchess of Cambridge was gracious, approachable, and refreshingly down-to-earth. “I was nervous – we were all – but she was a normal humble person. She made us feel comfortable,” said 17-year-old Tahseen Patel.
Patel explained that Middleton is enthusiastic about uniting people from different cultures and finding a common foundation. “She stressed the importance of understanding each other and learning about each other’s religion and cultures,” Patel said.
It seems that the Girl Guides would like to involve someone like Middleton in the case!
