The smiling Duchess was shown around the exhibits by Dr Doug Gurr, the director of the National History Museum.

A new transformation of the five-acre site will see it changed into an accessible and biologically diverse green space.

New outdoor galleries will showcase the Museum's scientific research, providing a space to learn about the diversity of life on Earth and how the planet has changed.

Today Kate has also thanked children’s hospices in the UK for the “remarkable” and “life-changing” work they do.

Kate, patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (Each), said the last year has been particularly difficult for families with seriously ill children and said children’s hospices are “a lifeline”.

In a message to mark Children’s Hospice Week from June 21 to June 27, the duchess said the care and support of children’s hospices “is needed now more than ever”.

The theme of the national awareness week, organised by the UK’s umbrella charity for children’s palliative care, Together for Short Lives, is “Pushed to the Limits”, reflecting how families who use children’s hospice services have been pushed to theirs this last year.

Her appearance at the museum comes after claims that Kate and Wills did not meet with Prince Harry after Philips funeral over fears the conversations would be “leaked.”

The warring brothers will see each other for the first time since Prince Philips fiuneral in April for the unveiling for the Princess Diana memorial on July 1.

Prince Harry could return to the UK in the next 24 hours so he can self-isolate ahead of the Princess Diana memorial.

The tribute takes place on what would have been his mother’s 60th birthday – but the Duke of Sussex will need to quarantine beforehand due to Covid travel rules.

He is thought to be flying in from the States, where he lives with wife Meghan, son Archie and newborn daughter Lilibet, today or tomorrow.

But as the US is on the UK’s amber list, he will need to isolate for up to 10 days.

Arrivals must also have proof of a negative Covid test result before departure, and have two further tests of days two and eight on their return.

Harry and Wills were seen walking and chatting together for around four minutes as they left their grandfather's moving funeral service earlier this year.

It was reported at the time that the brothers then spoke for two hours afterwards – alongside dad Charles – in attempt to patch things over in their first meeting since Harry's bombshell Oprah interview.

But Lacey claims the formal conference did not happen – with Charles said to have gone back to Wales and Kate and William nipping home to put their kids to bed.

The Cambridges' alleged fears came after Meghan's pal Gayle King sensationally let slip that Harry had had "unproductive" talks with his brother and dad after his Oprah interview.  

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also admitted that they purchased a “significant” number of domain names for potential names they were considering for their baby girl.

The couple had hit back at a Palace source who claimed they "never asked" the monarch about using her childhood nickname, Lilibet, insisting she was "supportive" of the choice.
