Today, the Duchess of Cambridge visited two Action for Children projects in Wales in her official role as Patron for the charity. These were her first engagements with the charity since becoming its Patron in December 2016 after the Queen handed over some of her work to younger members of the Royal Family.
The Duchess first visited Torfaen to see MIST, a child and adolescent mental health project which works specifically with children who are living in care with foster families or birth families. The Duchess then visited the Caerphilly Family Intervention Team (FIT) to learn about their work with children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, problems with family relationships and those who have or who are likely to self-harm.
Kensington Palace shared that “Action For Children cares for disadvantaged children from across the UK, from before they are born until they are into their twenties. The organisation helps all types of families, supporting children and carers through fostering or adoption, and intervening early to stop neglect and abuse.”
For the event, Kate wore her Paule Ka suit seen previously in 2012, Russell and Bromley boots, a black turtleneck and her Kiki McDonough citrine earrings. Gloves are newer UFO item she has been wearing recently.
