The Duchess of Cambridge visited the seaside town of Margate to have a guided tour around the Turner Contemporary art gallery.

Kate was shown around the Self: Image and Identity exhibition, which included modern pieces as well as the last self-portrait by Flemish artist Sir Anthony van Dyck. Her Royal Highness toured the gallery and met artists whose works are in the exhibition.

Wearing an eye-catching animal spot print dress, Kate was also shown the Self-Portrait as a Drowned Man by Jeremy Millar, a sculpture of a dead man lying on the floor of the exhibit.

After seeing the artwork, she took time to talk with artists as well as children in studios at the gallery. The Duchess saw how Turner Contemporary engages with the local community in the Clore Learning Studio, where she met local school children involved in an art project and met a group of young women who have been working with local artist Felicity Allen

The duchess was visiting the gallery as part of her work for the National Portrait Gallery, of which she is a royal patron.

Finally The Duchess saw the exhibition 'Mr Lion 14' by Blank Canvas, Turner Contemporary's inter-generational community group.
