The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to the Foundling Museum in central London. Secondo la sua sito web, the museum “tells the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery.”
Kate is patron of the museum, per People magazine.
The royal couple participated in a roundtable discussion with experts about foster care in the United Kingdom and how to help those in the system and support them during challenges they may face after, such as in their careers, issues pertaining to housing, addiction and mental health.
They also spoke with poet Lemn Sissay, writer Allan Jenkins and former athlete Kriss Aakabusi, all who shared their experiences in care.
Sissay has previously worked with Kate for her Hold Still portraits project per the outlet. Sissay also made a speech at the duchess’s Christmas carol concert just last month.
The couple also participated in games at the museum, per a clip royal reporter Richard Palmer shared on Twitter, where the group, including Kate, lets out a laugh.
Kate and William’s first royal outing of the year comes just days after William’s uncle, and Queen Elizabeth’s son, Principe Andrew, was stripped of his military, royal titles amid his ongoing sexual assault case.
Lo scorso giovedì, Buckingham Palace confirmed in una dichiarazione sent to Fox News that the reigning monarch, 95, agreed to accept the returned accolades.
“With The Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to The Queen,” la dichiarazione letta. “The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”
Di mercoledì, a judge refused to dismiss a lawsuit against the British prince by the American woman who said he sexually abused her when she was 17.
The queen’s second son previously quit public duties in November 2019, but he was still listed on the royal family’s website as a patron or member of around 100 charities and organizations.
