The Duchess of Cambridge got to live out her dream of being a farmer on Wednesday morning. Kate Middleton, 35, strapped on her trusty Penelope Chilvers Long Tassel Boots to visit Farms for City Children. The ever-stylish royal was dressed country chic for the engagement, wearing her Mid-Rise Zara biker trousers, which she paired with her Troy London Wax Parka over a sweater and gingham shirt, while styling her glossy locks half up, half down.

Kate traveled to the charity located in Gloucestershire, which offers urban children the opportunity to live and work on a real farm in the heart of the countryside, to learn about the day-to-day running of a farm. Prince George’s mom was shown around the grounds by children's author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare, who founded the charity in 1976. During the engagement, the Duchess and the kids were treated to a storytelling session by the author of War Horse. One of the charity's missions is to promote literacy and storytelling. Kate also lent a hand planting marigolds and onions in a vegetable garden, before visiting a number of farm animals including, lambs, pigs and horses.

Last year, Prince William’s wife admitted that she loved farm life. “[Kate] said she was teaching George and Charlotte all about the farm at Sandringham,” a young farmer named Bea Hodge told reporters while the Duke and Duchess were visiting Cornwall. “She’s been teaching George the difference between barley and wheat and everything they grow on the farm there,” the teen added. “She wants the children to learn all about farming and the apples in their orchard. She said she’d secretly like to be a young farmer.
