Kate Middleton’s new plan will ‘shift focus’ to the victims of the pandemic, helping all that have been affected by the health crisis, especially the ‘silent victims’.
The still on-going global health crisis has affected everyone in one way or another. The royal family have been trying to do all they can in the pandemic, be it by providing support to those who need it or trying to do as much royal duties virtually as they can to keep in touch with all the organizations and people they work with.
Recently royal sources have reported that Kate Middleton has begun with a brand new initiative that will focus on the silent victims of the global health crisis, such as the young children who have had their development impacted by the pandemic.
At the moment, with the UK’s third lockdown underway now, Kate and her husband Prince William, and their three children George, Charlotte and Louis, have been self-isolating at their country home Anmer Hall, located in Norfolk.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have adapted to the new way of working ever since the start of the pandemic, transitioning to virtual engagements during the multiple lockdowns. The royal couple have done dozens of virtual calls, virtual events and when the restrictions were lifted they attended socially distanced events.
And now it seems that their upcoming project will shed light on those suffering and support frontline workers.
The Duchess is already changing how her charities will be operating after the pandemic and will be progressing her work with the Early Year’s survey.
An insider told the Mirror, “The Duchess’s primary work will be to build on the results of the survey and bring together more partners to focus on those who are most at risk of falling through the cracks of society.’”
The insider also mentioned that issues such as homelessness, addiction and mental health have been seriously impacted by the pandemic. These are all topics that both Kate and William are really passionate about.
Peter Grigg, CEO of Home-Start UK, an organization whose goal is helping children and families who are struggling, has talked about how Kate’s help could shed light on the crisis, “The early years have been historically woefully underfunded and the attention on the Duchess’s focus has the capacity to make real change.”
All this comes after the royal foundation website was updated. The update said they are connecting their patronages to charities so that they can provide support to frontline workers. The couple plan on promoting and supporting mental health charities, as well as a bigger emphasis on frontline workers, celebrating them for all they have selflessly done.
