This was a VERY cute and festive outing indeed. Allow us to turn to Informative, uh, Twitter to set the scene:

We’ve also got video from the scene:

I might be in love with this child:

This is great:

And what is Kate wearing? I feel like she came VERY close to leaving the house wearing a Santa hat, to be quite honest. We’ve got her old stalwart skinny jeans, this very reasonable sweater,  her puffer that she’s had for ages (including that time she and Wills and Harry raced each other), and a pair of very sensible hiking boots that I haven’t seen a credit for  — they are not her Chloe ones. Anyway, the whole thing is festive and appropriate for hauling trees around for kids. Let the holiday spirit move you!
