Kate Middleton had a dino-mite morning!

The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Natural History Museum in London where she hung out with twenty child "dino-scientists" as a part of her duties as Patron of the children's mental health charity, Place2Be. During her visit, she enjoyed a tea party with the kids while celebrating the museum's Dippy the Diplodocus going on tour. Dippy was first installed in the museum in 1908 and will begin traveling throughout the United Kingdom from 2018 to 2020.

As a part of the exciting news, Kate—who donned a printed, long sleeve L.K. Bennett dress—helped decorate "dinosaur eggs" with the children while also learning all about Dippy. She even took part in a mini fossil dig!

Following all the fun activities, the princess commenced the tour in the most appropriate way: by cutting a Dippy cake with the museum's director Sir Michael Dixon.

During her visit, Kate couldn't help but gush aboutPrince George. Royal Correspondent Rebecca English said the Duchess revealed her son also loves dinosaurs—particularly the T-Rex—as well as volcanoes.

The visit to NHM London is just one of Kate's many stops as she continues raising awareness around mental health.

Earlier this year, she delivered a powerful message during Children's Mental Health Week, explaining the importance of charities like Place2Be. 

"Through my work in areas like addiction, I have seen time and again that the roots of poor mental health in adulthood frequently stem from unresolved childhood issues," Kate explained at the time. "This needs to change. William and I feel that every child deserves to be supported through difficult times in their lives."
