Joyous Kate swaps high-end fashion for a hoodie - and a blindfold - as the Duchess takes part in fun and games with Scouts group

The Duchess of Cambridge, who is five months pregnant, wore a black UK Scouting hooded top with black skinny J Brand jeans and boots as she helped the 23rd Poplar Beaver Scout Colony in east London win a new badge. It promised to be a messy evening as the Duchess helped the Beavers, aged between five and eight, learn about life with disabilities. As well as teaching the children to ice a cake blindfolded, Kate was due to cut up a chocolate bar with boxing gloves, learn the Scout Promise in sign language, and put a wet suit on blindfolded.
