LONDON - Dancing Queen? Duchess Catherine took a spin with adorably cuddly Paddington Bear on Monday during a surprise appearance with her husband, Prince William, in London, Us Weekly reports.
The duchess, who announced her third pregnancy in September, surprised Londoners at the Paddington train station with the giant dancing bear, the Mirror reported. Young guests were taken on a ride in 1920-1930s-era vintage train from the station as part of the royals’ Charities Forum, according to People. Before the ride, the beloved character danced with the royals and the children in the crowd.
The lovable character’s next film, “Paddington 2,” premieres in the United Kingdom on Nov. 10. At one point, Duchess Catherine danced with the bear and was spotted spinning around the platform.

Children from charities including Place2Be, Anna Freud National Center for Children and Families and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice were all present for the festivities. The Charities Forum supports more than 30 organizations in which the royals are involved.
This is Duchess Catherine’s second public appearance since sharing the pregnancy news. The Duchess has canceled several appearances as she suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, acute morning sickness, in her pregnancies.
Last week, she was spotted out for the first time since the announcement in honor of World Mental Health Day. Her severe morning sickness kept her from escorting her eldest son, Prince George, to school for the first time in September.
