Some of Kate's followers weren't happy with her latest post

| Updated:

Kate Middleton proved this week that she isn’t letting COVID-19 get in the way of her royal duties.

The Duchess of Cambridge took a trip to Battersea Park in London to hear from young mothers and fathers about their experiences with parent-to-parent support groups.

Thousands of parents across the UK use their experience to help new mums and dads get to grips with parenthood, and Kate wanted to help celebrate them.


After speaking with volunteers from different organisations, Kate headed down to the park to meet face-to-face with adorable babies and their parents.

In a photo shared to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram account, Kate can be seen greeting an adorable baby and their mother.

Fans rushed to comment underneath the snap, with one saying: “She is a fantastic woman and I hope that when I grow up and have kiddies I will be just like her!”

Another said:  “I know so many mums who’ve struggled through Covid. I bet this was such a boost for these women.”

However, not everyone was quite so gushing about the post.

One follower hit back, saying: “No masks? C’mon man!” [Sic] while another added: “Umm where are the face masks? Should be setting an example.”

Others defended Kate’s lack of a mask, saying: “She’s outside!”

Another wrote: “She is outdoors guys. In the UK no masks required.”

What have William and Kate been up to lately?

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went to Beigel Bake in Brick Lane, London, recently to learn how the local business is coping amid the coronavirus pandemic.

During their visit, the couple helped knead dough into shape to make bagels.

Kate and William got into the competitive spirit as they were judged on their technique.

As well as using hand sanitiser, the couple also wore aprons and face masks.

However, some fans noticed the pair weren’t wearing hair nets or gloves during the video.

What did fans say?

One person commented: “Where are the gloves when you handle food?”

Another wrote: “Does no one wear hair nets and hats and no jewellery with stones in this bakery?”

However, others were quick to jump to Kate’s defence.

One wrote: “It’s a bagel store… bagels get boiled then baked!”
