Kate Middleton, now formally known as Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, had another royal engagement today. She’s not wasting time getting back into the swing of things! She visited women in prison.
A picture from her visit was posted on the Kensington Palace Instagram, along with a statement from the Duchess.
The Duchess of Cambridge has today visited Send women’s prison to join the Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust (RAPt), an addiction charity working to help prisoners addicted to drugs and alcohol. Following the visit, The Duchess of Cambridge said: “I was reminded today how addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues. I saw again today that a failure to intervene early in life to tackle mental health problems and other challenges can have profound consequences for people throughout their lives. I am grateful to the women I met for sharing their difficult personal stories with me.”
That is SO true: if we don’t intervene early with kids who have problems, it’s very likely that they’ll grow into adults with even bigger problems. Prevention and early intervention is crucial with so many issues! It’s great that the Duchess is using her platform to shine a spotlight on these issues. Of course she looked as chic as ever for her visit :). It’s great to see her back out in the public eye!
