Well this is a side of the Duchess that we certainly didn’t know existed before. The Duchess of Cambridge recently revealed that she’s a keen beekeeper when she brought a pot of her own honey during a visit to the Natural History Museum. Here’s what you need to know.
While most of the world is aware of the fact that Kate Middleton is one of the most glamorous and best-dressed royals in the world, no one knew that she had a thing for bees, too.
Prince William’s wife revealed that she has become a beekeeper when she offered schoolchildren a taste of her own honey from the hives at her Norfolk home. This was during the Duchess’ visit to the wildlife garden at the Natural History Museum to learn about its new Urban Nature Project.
Kate Middleton Reveals This Little-Known Fact About Her Private Life
The mother-of-three asked youngsters from St Mary of the Angels Primary School in London if they knew where bees got their nectar from, before producing a pot of honey made by her own bees at Anmer Hall.
“Would you like to try some?” she asked. “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?”
And while this is the first time that Kate Middleton has shared anything from her own apiary, beekeeping is actually a Middleton family hobby. Her brother James Middleton wrote an essay about his backyard bee colony and says that his first beehives were a birthday present from his parents.
Kate has been a patron of the museum since 2013. Her last visit was back in October, hen she filmed a spot awarding 2020’s Nature Photographer of the Year during regular hours.
