Duchess Kate is kept extremely busy with official royal duties, and her three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. But that doesn't mean that she can't find the time to socialize with other parents.

According to the Daily Mail, the duchess discreetly attended an evening event held for parents of children attending Thomas's Battersea. Kate cleverly avoided being photographed attending the night out by allegedly using the pub's secret entrance.

Per the publication, the event took place in the Boulevard Bar, inside The Hollywood Arms in Chelsea. The venue apparently has a secret side entrance should any high-profile guests wish to attend without being spotted. This meant that the Duchess of Cambridge could meet other parents from Prince George and Princess Charlotte's school without causing any unnecessary drama.

It was recently revealed that, just like Duchess Kate, Queen Elizabeth does her own makeup. The queen's longtime dresser, Angela Kelly, spilled the monarch's style secrets in new book, The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe.

Per People, Kelly wrote, "You might be surprised to know that this is the only occasion throughout the year when Her Majesty does not do her own makeup," referring to the queen's annual televised Christmas speech.
