Kate Middleton might be a duchess, but her latest public engagement shows she's just as content being a country girl.

The royal spent her Wednesday afternoon at Farms For City Children in Arlingham, Gloucestershire, a charity which gives children from cities the chance to experience working on a farm.

She wore a khaki jacket and her favourite practical footwear - a pair of brown tasseled boots by Penelope Chilvers - for the visit, which saw her get stuck in with a number of farming duties, like tending to a vegetable garden and feeding an adorable lamb.

The duchess also met with children's author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare, who founded the organisation in 1976. Later, she joined in a story-telling session in the farm's barn with a group of school children.

It's likely the royal visitor was a hit with her audience, but for Kate, it was also the perfect day out.

According to People, following a simpler path as a farmer is a future she's always dreamed of.

During a day-long tour of Cornwall last August, Kate told a member of the Wadebridge Young Farmers Club that she has been encouraging Prince George and Princess Charlotte to take an interest in the farm at the family's home in Norfolk.

'She said she was teaching George and Charlotte all about the farm at Sandringham,' teenager Bea Hodge told reporters at the time.

'She wants the children to learn all about farming and the apples in their orchard. She said she'd secretly like to be a young farmer.'

It might be wishful thinking, but it looks like this royal would suit life in boots and a parka.
