    The Duchess of Cambridge gave a group of children some honey made by her own bees

    The 39-year-old royal surprised pupils from London’s St. Mary of the Angels Primary school when she joined them on their visit to the city’s Natural History Museum – of which Catherine has been patron since 2013 – as they took part in various activities at the facility’s Wildlife Garden

    Catherine asked the children if they knew where bees got their nectar, before producing a pot of honey made by the bees from her Anmer Hall estate.

    She asked them: "Would you like to try some? I've got one spoon each. This came specially from my beehive.

    "See if it tastes the same as at home. Does it taste like honey from the shops? Does it taste like flowers?"

    The duchess then asked the group if they knew how many species of bees there are in the UK, before telling them: "It's 350, isn't that amazing?

    "Every time you see a bee; say thank you so much because they make delicious honey."

    Catherine also helped the children make spiders from pine cones and then joined them on an immersive story telling walk.

    She told the youngsters: "I'm going to call my spider cuddles."

    Catherine – who has children Princes George, seven, and Louis, three, and Princess Charlotte, six, with husband Prince William – had visited the museum to learn about how communities will benefit from their Urban Nature Project.

    The scheme will launch later this year and is intended to help people reconnect with the natural world and find practical solutions to protect our planet's future.

    The five-acre grounds of the museum will be transformed into a globally-relevant urban nature epicentre for the project, and will include outdoor classrooms, a ‘living lab’ and even a weatherproof cast of the Natural History Museum’s famous diplodocus, Dippy.
