A baby lamb called Stinky had a very special visitor giving him a bottle of milk on Wednesday – the Duchess of Cambridge.
Kate met Stinky during a visit to the Farms For City Children in Arlingham, Gloucestershire – a charity set up by children’s author Michael Morpurgo to teach city kids about farming.
The Duchess helped the kids – from Vauxhall in London – plant onions, tend to a chicken coop and pot vegetable plants as well as trying her hand at pig weighing.
The organisation, which has three working farms, welcomes around 3,200 children and 400 teachers a year.
The Duchess came for a private lunch with the children and staff, before joining a story-time session led by Morpurgo, who founded the charity with his wife Clare in 1976.
Speaking afterwards, farm manager John Goodman said: “It’s been good fun. The Duchess is really hands on and really good fun and brilliant with the children – she has a rapport with them.”
