The staff at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London were shocked when Kate showed up there unannounced last week -- a day after her very public appearance with the Queen and Camilla at Fortnum & Mason.
The museum, located in London's Bethnal Green, houses the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection of childhood-related objects and artefacts spanning the 1600s to present day.
"She wanted to have a look at the museum and the services it offers," an aide says of her visit to the museum, which averages 400,000 visitors per year. "It's an interest of hers and there's no suggestion or plans, to take it on as another patronage."
Kate visited Magic worlds exhibition, which explores the world of fairy tales and fantasy literature, the history and origins of magic, and how themes of magic have influenced many artists and writers.
She also visited a contemporary art exhibition called "The Value Of The Paw", a display of strange creatures and well-known characters from popular fairy tales.
