Saturday, 22 September 2020 — The Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) met mothers in Battersea Park, London to discuss their experiences of finding support amid the coronavirus pandemic.
During the ‘socially distanced’ meeting, Kate heard how mothers had coped during lockdown, and how they used technology to make friends, keep in touch and seek support while confined to their homes.
Before meeting with the mums, Kate took part in a video call from her home. She spoke to experts and volunteers from organisations across the UK who support families and children. She learned how their services were impacted by COVID-19. Kate thanked them for their work helping parents with young children.
Kate, 38, who has focused a lot of her royal work in the last few years on the needs and wellbeing of families — especially young children — wanted to highlight the parents who use their time, experience and knowledge to support other families, whether as professionals or trained volunteers or through informal parent networks.Simon Perry, People.com
The Duchess looked casual-yet-chic for her meet-up with mums in the park. She wore a white short-sleeved top and dusky rose pink cropped trousers, both perfect for the balmy weather. Kate added a little bling with gold accessories. Let’s take a closer look at each piece:
The top features gently puffed short sleeves and a square neckline. Both elements add a feminine touch to an otherwise simple design. The cotton-mix fabric has a slightly ribbed texture.
The piece costs £99 GBP and can be purchased from Ralph Lauren, Next, John Lewis, House of Fraser, (correct as of October 5th 2020, but subject to change of course!)
The trousers are made from an Italian wool blend fabric with added stretch for comfort. They’re slim fitting, feature pin tucks and two functional side pockets and they’re cropped above the ankle.
They retailed for £59 on Marks and Spencer’s website. Sadly, they’re no longer in stock.
Kate wore her white Superga 2750 Cotu Classics. The tennis shoe features a strong, breathable white cotton canvas upper and a vulcanised rubber sole.
The shoe is widely available to buy. It’s stocked at the following places: On the brand’s official websites, Superga-USA.com and Superga.co.uk (plus other regional variations), Amazon.com, Amazon UK, John Lewis, Nordstrom and Zappos.
