Kate Middleton had one heck of a jam-packed weekend.

After kicking off the weekend with a couple of charitable and royal family duties, the Duchess of Cambridge was out and about again Sunday, joining a group of inner-city children in Kent, England, on a camping trip.

And she seemed to have a great time, smiling and chatting with the campers as she talked about her life as a princess.

While the children were on hand to build tents and make campfires to develop their confidence and teamwork skills, they also had many questions about what it's like to live like a royal, according to People.

"It's very busy and great fun but I am very well looked after," Middleton reportedly told one child.

And those included questions about Prince William as well. 

"She said William was very sweet and kind and spoiled her," eight-year-old student Tigerlily Smith told reporters after chatting with the 30-year-old Duchess.

Although Kate was spotted donning a Zara dress when she hosted a play production for 150 kids just a couple of days ago, the princess dressed down for this outdoor occasion, wearing Le Chameau boots, Zara jeans and a Burberry top, according to Pop Sugar.

The students in attendance were from U.K. education charity ARK's King Solomon Academy Primary in north Westminster, London, which is supported by The Foundation of Princes William and Harry.

"Many of the children here live in flats with no gardens and little area to play," ARK spokesperson Lesley Smith told People. "This has been such an experience for them."
