According to reports, Kate Middleton joined parents of other children who go to the same school as Prince George and Princess Charlotte for a drink at one of Prince Harry’s old hangouts
The Duchess of Cambridge may have had a busy week following a whirlwind two-day trip to Copenhagen.
But it seems she may have found time before she embarked on the trip to let her hair down at the pub.
According to reports, Kate was spotted last week relaxing over a drink at the Hollywood Arms in Chelsea.
It is claimed she was with parents of other children who went to Thomas’s School in Battersea, where Prince George and Princess Charlotte are pupils.
An onlooker told the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden: “Kate was in last week with parents from her children’s school.”
They added: “There was no fuss or fanfare.”
However, it’s not the first time she has been spotted in the same pub. In 2019 she attended a ‘meet and greet’ drinks party for parents of children who joined the school that September, which included Charlotte.
Kate’s brother-in-law Prince Harry also used to be a regular at the Hollywood Arms before his marriage to Meghan Markle.

The former owners even created a secret entrance for him so he could come and go without being photographed, reports the Mail on Sunday.
Kate and husband Prince William seem to be very involved in school life They are regulars on the school run, and are often spotted dropping George and Charlotte off at the gates.
And while you might expect that the other people in the playground would be very excited to see the royals every day, it turns out people barely look at them anymore.
One parent previously told the Daily Mail there’s actually another mum who people find a lot more interesting than Kate and William – especially the dads.
They said: “No one really gives Kate a second glance when she does the school drop-off.
“We have a Victoria’s Secret model doing the school run, too, and the dads are far more interested in her!”
Next month is set to be a busy one for Kate and indeed her husband William.
They will kick off March next week with a trip to Wales on the first day of the month to mark St David’s Day.
And yesterday it was confirmed they will also be heading off on a week-long tour to the Caribbean to help mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The tour starts on March 19 and will take in Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas before ending on March 26.
