Kate Middleton Reportedly Joined Fellow Parents for Meet-Up at a Local Pub

Kate Middleton enjoyed some time off royal duites as she joined parents from her children's school for a meet-up at a local pub.

Despite her royal title as the Duchess of Cambridge and a queen-to-be, Kate Middleton is just a regular mother who loves to hang out with other moms.

Recently, Kate stepped out of her royal duties to enjoy some time with fellow mums from her kids' school, Thomas's Battersea.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the Duchess of Cambridge joined other school mums on a visit to the pub for a drinks party in Chelsea.

The meet and greet which happened in September saw the duchess and her friends hang out at the Uber-glamorous pub, Hollywood Arms. 

The mother-of-three was able to escape the scrutiny and prying eyes of the paparazzi and clicking camera thanks to a secret entrance.

As revealed by the publication, the secret entrance was initially made for her brother-in-law Prince Harry during his party bachelor days.

Kate kept things simple and was accompanied by just one royal protection officer who watched over the festivity.

For the get-together, the group of moms used a private salon in the pub, which cost £2,500 and can hold up to 80 people. 

Willow Crowley and her husband Charlie owned the pub until they sold it in 2015. 

The duchess attended the annual meet and greet party, which is usually held for parents of new pupils at the £6,000 per term private school.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the #ChelseaFlowerShow on Sunday afternoon. The photographs were taken by @mattporteous. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular. Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate @The_RHS Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den. The Duchess told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children. I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”

It is no surprise that Kate was a part of the hang out as a source previously told PEOPLE that the duchess is very hands-on with her kids. 

The royal insider said:

"She wants to emulate her upbringing, living in the countryside with a close-knit family. She desperately wants that normality for her own kids."

This was evident when Kate joined her husband, Prince William, to drop off their daughter, Princess Charlotte, at Thomas's Battersea for her first day of school back in September.

As reported by PEOPLE, the 4-year-old joined her elder brother, Prince George, at the private school in London for the start of her reception year. 

Prince George, on the other hand, was returning for Year 2 with a curriculum that includes core subjects such as math, English, science, history, and geography.

Kate showed off her natural maternal instincts as she held Princess Charlotte's hand while carrying her daughter's backpack in the other.
