Duchess Kate hasn’t attended any events following the couple’s Pakistan tour. The return from Pakistan coincided with a break in George and Charlotte’s school. So, mom Kate and dad William took their children to Anmer Hall for some family time.
But, now the Duchess is returning back to work. And she already carried out a private engagement.
According to The Court Circular, on Tuesday morning, the Duchess of Cambridge held an Early Years Meeting.
The past year, Kate 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.
And last month, the Royal Foundation’s website shared an update on Kate’s upcoming venture, explaining that it will spotlight the importance of early intervention in childhood.
The Early Years section of the site reads: “The first few years of childhood are more pivotal for development, future health and happiness, than any other single moment of our lifetime.
“With a greater focus on the early years, the Duchess of Cambridge believes we can better provide solid social and emotional platforms for children to make them healthier and more resilient later in life.”
Kate’s interest in early intervention has stemmed from her work on issues including addiction and family breakdown, the website adds.
“The Duchess has observed that so many of society’s greatest social and health challenges, and the inter-generational cycle of disadvantage, could be mitigated or entirely avoided by providing the right support for children in the earliest years in life.”
Tomorrow, on 7 November, Kate and William will travel to St-Martin-in-the-Fields, London, to attend the launch of the National Emergencies Trust. While there, the couple will learn how the independent charity will help other organizations and emergency services respond to disasters in the U.K.
