The first joint outing of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just took place, visiting Kate patronage, the Foundling Museum in London.
The Duchess was spotted, elegant as ever, in a petrol blue coat with a navy roll neck and trouser combo and a brand new pair of earrings. Kate being no stranger to a high street bargain, her newest accessory is a steal at £2.10 down from £7 in the Accessorize sale, which has since sold out.
Catherine recently celebrated her 40th birthday, most likely spending the day with her close family, so we wonder, she was no doubt treated to some jaw-dropping gifts, so could this have been a little present from William and their three little royals or maybe even a stocking filler?
No worries though, as the Duchess of Cambridge has received her fair share of special presents over the years, from diamond and sapphire earrings from William at around the time of their wedding to a golden charm bracelet from her stepmother-in-law, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall.
William and Duchess Kate visited the Foundling Museum to learn more about the care sector and the challenges those leaving it to face. They joined roundtable discussions and met with athlete KrissAkabusi, poet LemnSissay and writer Allan Jenkins, discussing their experiences and opinions about growing up in care.
The Foundling Museum is dedicated to the history of the Foundling Hospital, which opened in 1739 as a home for children whose mothers could not care for them, effectively becoming the UK’s first children’s charity.
The discussion was followed by an ice-breaker art session, hosted by a group of women who had previously been in care.
The museum now delivers training and mentorship programs, as well as creative projects aiming to improve the lives of young people with experiences in the care system. Its Tracing Our Tales initiative aims to give young adults from London who has been part of the care system life skills and paid employment to devise family workshops at the museum.
