The Duchess of Cambridge visited London’s Foundling Museum today.
The Foundling Museum is a historical preservation of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity as a combined charity-cum-art-gallery.
The Foundling Hospital worked as a psuedo-orphanage/group home for children from the 1700’s until the 1950’s.
Today’s the museum houses the historical artifacts left from this period, including mementos left by mothers with their children in hopes they would later be reunited.
In addition to acting as a museum, the Foundling Museum offers art therapy programs to local children. Kate met with some of the little ones who enjoy these programs.
She took part in a workshop and met with local schoolchildren who also use the facilities.
After yesterday’s exciting royal engagement, Catherine commented to the press that “William and I are absolutely thrilled. It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.”
For today’s event, Kate wore a fun and retro-inspired frock from Kate Spade. The dress featured a navy and white diamond pattern with maroon trim.
Catherine accessorized with burgundy Gianvito Rossi pumps and her diamond and sapphire earrings. A very playful look for today’s event!
We look forward to the exciting things the royals have in store for us in the coming weeks! Stay tuned!
