Prince WilliamPrincess Kate, and Prince Harry joined children from various charities they support as they met the cast and crew of Paddington 2.


The royals are hosting their annual Charities Forum, and children were invited to ride a vintage train out of Paddington Station as their transportation. They were met by Paddington Bear, as well as Paddington 2 actor Hugh Bonneville and producer David Heyman.

The Charities Forum supports more than 30 organizations that the royals are involved with. Aboard the train were 130 children from charities such as East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Place2Be, and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. Guests from both WellChild and Child Bereavement UK were present at the train station. Later in the evening, Prince Harry attended the annual WellChild Awards, as he is a patron of the charity.

Princess Kate made a surprise appearance at Paddington Station, showing off her baby bump. The royal couple announced she was pregnant with their third child in September, and she has been out of the public eye dealing with acute morning sickness – an ailment she suffered during her first two pregnancies as well. She took a moment to dance with Paddington Bear.
