The visit to Gilwell Park will also celebrate the site's 100th anniversary year. 2019 also marks the 100th anniversary of Gilwell Park, a site recognised internationally as the home of Scouting. Located on the edge of Epping Forest, it is a Scout campsite, training and adventure centre, and home to the organisation's UK headquarters. Each year, the Park welcomes thousands of Scouts, schools and youth groups to develop their character skills, including taking the initiative and tenacity employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid.

Ditching her trademark heels in favour of her favourite brown Chloe boots (£360), the Duchess rocked a more laid-back look for the outdoors engagement.

But perhaps her most interesting fashion pick of the day was her dark red J. Crew turtleneck, which is on sale for just £89!

The jumper is still on sale in the Duchesss mahogany colour, but its also available in a range of other colours including a blush pink, a navy, a khaki green and a light grey.

Although it may be slightly more than youd normally spend on a jumper, the super-soft blend of yarn used in this one means itll last, and feel cosy, for years to come.

The Duchess looked chic and comfortable playing and laughing with the children at Gilwell Park – even going as far as crouching down for a game of hide and seek in the trunk of a tree.

The 37-year-old Duchess took part in a day of team building exercises with the young children, who were the same age as her five-year-old eldest son Prince George, to mark the 100th anniversary of the scouts at its Gilwell Park headquarters.
