Kate Middleton let her hair down today as she led a school assembly for her latest children's charity project.

The Duchess of Cambridge (34) made an appearance at St Catherine's primary school in Edinburgh today where she couldn't stop laughing during the morning assembly.

She has become a regular in primary schools in the UK in recent months as part of her role as an ambassador for Place2Be, a charity which provides counselling for children in schools.

As always, all eyes were on her choice of outfit and the mother-of-two opted for another recycled look - a dark green Max Mara coat she wore on Christmas Day, a skirt by Le Kilt paired with a black polo neck and a Mulberry clutch.

Kate has increased her monthly number of public engagements in recent months as she and husband Prince William take on a more hands-on role within the royal family.

She took a four month break after welcoming both of her children Prince George in July 2013 and Princess Charlotte in May 2015.

And the future King and Queen of England are determined to give their two children as normal an upbringing as possible and signed George up for a local montessori programme.

Montessori nursery is very different from other nurseries in the way it teaches the children to be independent. This approach is something William and Catherine thought was incredibly important as their son grows up.

“Montessori focuses on social development and independence as well as education,” the source told Bella magazine. “Children are encouraged to choose whatever activity suits them, and then the teacher is there to be a guide.

“As George gets older there will be constraints in his life, so this is a great start where he will get independence and freedom. He needs to have as much freedom as possible for as long as possible. This method of education gives a child a strong sense of what they like and dislike, which should give him the confidence he'll need as our future monarch.”
