The Duchess of Cambridge spent a fun evening with a group of Beaver Scouts – and learnt to eat a chocolate bar while wearing a boxing glove.

Kate, who is an occasional volunteer with the Scout Association, was reduced to giggles as she joined the youngsters who were having a practical lesson in living with a disability.

And she even donned a blindfold and tried to decorate a cupcake with icing while being helped by a little boy.

Dressed casually in a black Scout Association hoodie, and matching skinny jeans and boots, she was given the local group’s scarf by Beaver Scout leader Carlos Lopez-Plandolit, 31, when she first arrived.

Kate had travelled to the Old Ford Primary School in London’s East End to act as an assistant at the weekly evening meeting of the 23rd Popular Beaver Scout Colony.

Her visit was unannounced and as she walked through the school gates a group of cub scouts who use the building had gathered to greet her and one said “oh my God” when he recognised her.

The Duchess had come to help 20 six to eight-year-old beavers earn their disability awareness badges and clearly enjoyed the experience of trying to eat a chocolate bar while wearing a boxing glove on her right hand.

She laughed as she first tried to pick up the sweet treat then the future Queen tried cutting it up with a fork and when she succeeded put the morsel in her mouth.

She encouraged Lilly Rose, aged eight, who was sitting next to her to have a go and even held the plate as the little girl got to grips with the tricky task.
