The Duchess of Cambridge is taking on a new patronage with the charity Family Action, a role that Queen Elizabeth II held onto for 65 years before passing the baton. Kate marked the beginning of her patronage today by joining in on jolly festivities hosted by the organization. She met with families supported by Family Action at Peterley Manor Farm in Great Missenden, where she participated in Christmas-themed activities like making “eco-friendly reindeer food” and picking out Christmas trees.

Flip through to see how merry the event was!
