She’s the queen of royal glamour, but Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, showed a whole new side to herself when she got involved in some sheep shearing in Cumbria.

A giggling Kate got down and dirty in the shearing shed at traditional sheep farm, Deepdale Hall n Patterdale.
The Duchess listened carefully to instructions on how to safely shear sheep, before grabbing the shears and asking, ‘So, turn it on?’ before confidently taking on a wildly kicking sheep.
Clearly not unnerved, Kate even managed a smile for the crowd as she tried her hand at fleecing the animal.
Prince William also got involved, and the duke later helped repair a traditional stone wall on the farm.
Kate said she was enjoying the visit, according to one local who talked to the popular royal, even though it was far from the glamour and excitement of London, and their other home in Norfolk.
'She said that it was raining a lot and was a long way from their home in Norfolk, but they love it here,' one Keswick local told the press.
William and Kate also met two young sisters, who became momentarily shy when they encountered their idol.
‘It’s a princess. You love princesses!’ the girls’ father announced, as the two youngsters shook Kate’s hand.
With the girls tongue tied at meeting a real life member of the royal family, dad intervened, telling the royal, ‘She wanted to know if you’d be wearing your Princess Elsa dress,’ referring to the popular Frozen character.
‘I know. I’m sorry,’ Kate responded. ‘I came in my trousers and my coat because I’m going to see some sheep.’
The royal couple's visit is being called a success, amid continued scrutiny of their reportedly fraught relationship with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. However, insiders say the couple were looking forward to being reunited with kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
