Duchess of Cambridge will visit Margate today

The Duchess of Cambridge is carrying out two engagements in Margate today.

Kate Middleton will visit an exhibition at the Turner Contemporary and an exhibition at Resort Studios to meet artists.

The Duchess will visit the 'Self: Image and Identity' exhibition, which includes the last self-portrait by Sir Anthony Van Dyck, which was secured for the nation by the National Portrait Gallery following a public appeal.

The Duchess will see how Turner Contemporary engages with the local community in the Clore Learning Studio, where she will meet local school children involved in an art project.

Kate will also tour the exhibition 'Mr Lion 14' by Blank Canvas by Turner Contemporary's inter-generational community group.

Turner Contemporary is one of the UK's leading art galleries based in Margate and East Kent. Located on the North Kent coast, the gallery is situated on the same site as the 'Cold Harbour' guest house where Turner frequently stayed during his visits to Margate.

Kate will then travel to Resort Studios, in Cliftonville, Margate, where she will see photomontages of local personalities and hear about their community work.

The day will see her tour the studios, including a print studio, project space and more general workspaces.
