One of Kate’s main focuses within her work has been supporting children. The past year, she has been working closely with experts and academics to investigate the correlation between vulnerable young children and those who experience mental-health problems, addiction, and anti-social issues in later life. Last September, Duchess Kate launched the campaign and has since formed a steering group of health-care experts; charity officials, and academics.
Now, the Duchess has enlisted the help of practitioners, academics and charities to highlight the importance of early intervention and according to the Royal Foundation’s website, “to develop a significant new body of work that will ultimately support all efforts to provide children with the best possible start in life.”
And she also gave us an update on her project: “This has been a major body of work and will be unveiled later this year.”
This comes after Prince Harry and Meghan’s names have been officially removed from the Royal Foundation’s website, following the split in June. Harry and Meghan departed from the joint venture with William and Kate and are establishing their own charitable foundation.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Duchess Kate paid a visit to the Natural History Museum, of which she is patron, to learn how the Angela Marmont Centre for U.K. Biodiversity is helping to protect wildlife in the U.K.
For the engagement, Kate donned a cranberry colored sweater from Warehouse and a pair of olive green trousers by Jigsaw. She completed the look with Asprey hoop earrings and a quilted Chanel handbag.
While there, the Duchess also viewed some of the museum’s specimens and saw DNA sequencing in action. The museum visit ties in with Kate’s work on childhood development and how nature and the outdoors can have a positive impact on physical and mental well-being.
