'Never puts a foot wrong!' Kate stars in poignant film to mark Remembrance



    The Duchess of Cambridge appeared in the film alongside a 10-year-old Cub Scout Emily Edge and Italy star veteran Colonel David Blum OBE. Kate, who is joint president of The Scout Association, awarded Emily a new Scouts’ Centenary Remembrance Badge for creating a poppy display for her local church.

    The initiative, spearheaded by the Duchess, was created to commemorate 100 years of the Royal British Legion and bestowed to those who take a meaningful part in remembrance.

    The film prompted royal fans to gush over Kate on social media.

    One Twitter user with the handle Kiwigal6262 wrote: “She has the knack of drawing out the best of people.

    “I think it is her sincerity and her naturalness that draws people in and allows them to open up.”

    Another, @RoyallyBelle_, said: “What a beautiful and meaningful conversation love how the Duchess always makes sure the focus is on others!”

    A third Twitter user, @vaneela6, commented: “What a lovely lady she is. She has so much love and compassion. And so caring. Love her to bits.”

    Another with the handle @La08412673Lady said: “Isn’t the Duchess just wonderful.

    “She gets more confident and relevant with age. God bless her, William and their children.”

    One more, @ALISONSTUART17, added: “She’s such an asset, never puts a foot wrong.”

    The chat took place at the Royal Hospital Chelsea earlier this month and the video was released on Friday.

    In the film, Emily told the Duchess what she had learned about the roles that the Scouts played as part of the wartime effort, including helping with the evacuation of young children from cities and taking part in fire watches and harvests.

    Kate spoke about the vital role that remembrance has played within our society over the past 100 years.

    And the star veteran reflected on the importance of remembrance to him, having served in Italy during the Second World War.

    They also discussed the long-term impact of Colonel Blum’s own time in the Scouts and the vital life skills and experiences that being a Scout can provide to young people, including building confidence, team-building skills and resilience.

    This year, Scouts across the country have been taking part in activities to commemorate the centenary of the Royal British Legion, which was created by Earl Haig in 1921.
