Kate Middleton will attend a special pack meeting next week, where she will play games and join a baking class and first aid training.

The meeting, at North Wooton scout hut next Wednesday, is part of the Cubs' centenery celebrations.

Kensington Palace said: 'The Duchess of Cambridge will attend a special Cub Scout Pack meeting with Cubs from the Kings Lynn District to celebrate 100 years of Cubs. Her Royal Highness will join the Pack as they take part in games and activities themed around looking after yourself and others physically and emotionally.

'Activities will include a parachute game to encourage teamwork and cooperation, first aid training and cub cake icing. They will then join together to renew their Cub Scout promise and celebrate the Cubs' 100th anniversary with the lighting of 100 candles and a rendition of happy birthday.'

Cub scouting was co-founded by Robert BadenPowell and Vera Barclay on December 16, 1916. The anniversary year, called Cubs100, started with a special camp for cub scouts from across the UK at London Zoo.
