Yesterday 38-year-old Kate Middleton visited the charity Tommy's in London. She helps families with miscarriages or premature births.
For her visit, the Duchess chose a blue midi dress from Emilia Wickstead, shoes from Prada and a face shield from Amaia Kids.
The Duchess's visit took place as part of Baby Loss Awareness - the so-called Child Loss Awareness Week.
The wife of Prince William also visited a laboratory at the Institute for Reproductive Biology and Development, Imperial College London. Wearing a white coat, she spoke to medical experts, who told her about their innovative work to prevent miscarriages. The Duchess was also told about the COVID-19 studies taking place at the research center, which are aimed at better understanding the risks of infection for pregnant women and their children.
Yesterday, Kate also met the parents who were supported by the charity after the loss of their child. So she talked to Claire Wargan, whose daughter was born dead.
When she was born she was flawless. Her birth was the best and at the same time the worst thing that ever happened to me,
- she said.
Keith noted that it was very courageous for Claire to talk about it so openly.
A wealth of research and organizational support comes from parents who have gone through this experience and want to help others. It's so inspiring
- she said.
The Duchess was also presented with a special Tommy's candle to take part in the Wave of Light event marking the end of Child Loss Awareness Week. At 7 pm tonight, candles will be lit all over the world to remember all the dead babies. All people can join this promotion by sharing their candle on social media using the hashtag #WaveOfLight.
