The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, enjoyed a particularly special outing with her baby Prince George last week.

The doting mum paid tribute to her husband’s late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, by reportedly taking their one-year-old to the memorial playground that was erected in honour of the “People’s Princess” in Kensington Gardens.

Kate brought baby George to the “beach” section of the area, which is a stone’s throw away from her and Prince William’s Apartment 1A home.

"It was lovely seeing them play together in the sand," an insider told The Express. "They stayed for about 15 minutes.

"They had three protection officers with them but Kate seemed oblivious to anyone except her gorgeous baby enjoying himself."

Diana passed away in 1997, leaving behind her ex-husband Prince Charles and sons Princes William and Harry. The playground was unveiled three years later on the eve of Diana’s birthday, but no members of the royal family attended the opening.
