Here’s a quick post on a few no press events that Kate Middleton attended recently as Patron of the Royal Foundation.
I missed this previously, but this showed up in the court circular for November 14. Kate, along with Prince William and Prince Harry, attended the Autumn Dinner of the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry at One Belgravia in London.
On December 7, William and Kate attended a Royal Foundation Board Meeting at St. Mary Abbots Place. And in the evening, William, Kate, and Harry attended a Royal Foundation Reception at Buckingham Palace.
The below photo was posted yesterday, December 7. Both Kate and Harry are seen giving a young woman a hug. The photo is captioned:
“So so proud of our baby @sai.kadirrajah. She recently delivered a speech on behalf of @youngmindsuk the @RoyalFoundation (run by #PrinceWilliam #PrinceHarry #DuchessofCambridge) ‘s private fundraiser. She was the only young person and the #royals were so moved by courage and determination that they even hugged and kissed her!! Kate even suggested she should be a public speaker!! Our family couldn’t be prouder!!!”
Given that the caption says “private fundraiser”, I think the photos might be from the Autumn Dinner on November 14 rather than the December 7 BP reception, but I’m not sure about that.
In the photo, Kate is wearing her red Preen “Finella” dress first seen in Canada, and most likely carrying her black Mulberry Bayswater clutch. Kate also wore some rather large drop earrings, but I can’t see clearly enough to tell which ones they are.
EDIT: I removed the embed since the photo no longer displays.
