Kate Middleton Is An Inspiration For Her Scouts Work, Says Prince Charles

Prince Charles has been praising his daughter-in-law Kate Middleton for her work with the Scouts.

The Prince wrote in the Mail on Sunday, "I need hardly say that I am particularly delighted that my daughter-in-law has helped to swell the ranks of much-needed Scout volunteers."

"Since enrolling many more adults as leaders is the greatest need for so many of our youth organisations."

The Duchess of Cambridge got involved in the organisation way back when she enrolled in her local Brownie troop. More than two decades later, she's still got the passion.

When K-Middy joined the Scouts group as a voluntary leader in 2012, a St James's Palace spokesperson said Kate "loved the idea of Scouting and working hands-on with children." She felt that the organisation was well-suited to her own love of the outdoors.

And in true Kate effect style, her involvement in the association has prompted a huge increase in the number of adults signing up to help, with more than 2,800 volunteering since she joined.
