During her visit to the RAF Air Cadets Windermere Adventure Training Centre she also took part in some abseiling.

Kate is an Honorary Air Commandant of the Royal Air Force Cadets.

What else did Kate get up to?

Kate also met with survivors of the Holocaust, one of the so-called ‘Windemere Children’.

In 1945, a group of 300 survivors relocated to the Lake District to heal and rebuild their lives.

Images showed Kate chatting with one of the survivors on a boat ride across the picturesque lake.

On Instagram, she captured the image: “It was so powerful to hear how their time in the Lakes enjoying outdoor recreation, sport and art therapy, allowed them to be able to begin to rebuild their lives and eventually, their families here in the UK.”
