Meghan Markle set to return to work after Lilibet’s birth, Kate Middleton dresses down for action

Meghan Markle is preparing to mark her return to work since the birth of Lilibet, as Kate Middleton showed off her sporty side.

She was joined by two of the “Windermere Children”, a group of 300 child Holocaust survivors who started new lives in the Lake District in 1945.

They disembarked at the Windermere Jetty Museum and met with relatives of survivors, who spoke about the time their loved ones spent in Cumbria.

“Following the atrocities experienced in the concentration camps in 1945, a group of 300 child Holocaust survivors came here, to the Lake District, to heal from the trauma of their childhood experiences,” Kate wrote on social media.

“This group of children were called the ‘Windermere Children’. I wanted to be able to meet some of the survivors Ike & Arek in person to hear their stories; about how they went on to create their own companies, write a book & to this day, still sneak in the odd round of golf.

“It was so powerful to hear how their time in the Lakes enjoying outdoor recreation, sport and art therapy, allowed them to be able to begin to rebuild their lives and eventually, their families here in the UK.”
