When some of the more salacious royal-watching tabloids started to report rumors that Prince William may have cheated on Kate Middleton with a married woman who bears the title, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, both couples immediately threatened legal action.

Prince William and Kate were in the rural community this week to pay respects to the efforts of local heroes and volunteers supporting the region.

The Duchess dressed down for the occasion, choosing practicality and comfort for the visit to Deepdale Hall Farm. Kate wore a jacket by Troy London, a label owned her friend, Rosie Van Cutsem.

Adorably, the Duchess took the opportunity to explain, revealing she'd worn jeans because she was "going to see some sheep".

They also joined them for sheep shearing, herding and dry stone walling.

Kate and Will met the Brown family, who have been farming in the valley near Lake Ullswater since the 1950s. Although the royals usually stay out of the political debate, Prince William - the future King - wanted to hear the concerns of the farmers who are directly affected by the Brexit fallout. The little town in North West England seemed the flawless destination for a quiet trip, although fans quickly noticed the couple and snapped a few shots.

The couple met with members of the volunteer local mountain rescue team, first responders in the community, and organisations that are making good use with donations given by the Cumbria Community Foundation. In 2017, she joined her husband and brother-in-law Prince Harry in spearheading the mental health campaign Heads Together, which has now partnered with eight mental health initiatives, including Place2Be, which is one of her patronages.

Clad in casual-yet-chic duds, the royal duo were greeted with the usual enthusiasm by well-wishers gathered in the Market Square of the town of Keswick, where they shook hands and cuddled a trio of cute spaniels trained as service dogs.

During the group's second activity, Kate and the children upcycled old household items and wellies into plant pots, with the Duchess opting to plant a Dianthus Barbatus into a silver watering can. The group aims to change the way that youth mental health is dealt with in their schools, communities, families and wider social circles.
