The outing comes following the announcement of Prince Harry's engagement to actress Meghan Markle. 

"William and I are absolutely thrilled. It's such exciting news," said Kate. "It's a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment."

The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Foundling Museum, the UK's first children's charity and first public art gallery, to learn more about its history and the ways it continues to support children and families. Kate, who is expecting baby No. 3 in April, also met families and children who have benefited from the museum's education and outreach programs.

The mother of two looked absolutely in her element as she participated in arts and crafts activities with young children. She even gave the group of children the seal of approval with an enthusiastic thumbs up after completing their artwork.
