Prince William and Kate, the Princess of Wales both stepped out in style on Wednesday as they attended solo royal engagements just one week on from their debut visit to Wales in their new roles.
Kate carried out a solo engagement as she attended the the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s maternity unit to hear more about the the holistic support it provides to pregnant women and new mothers to ensure they receive the best possible care throughout and beyond their pregnancies.
Dressed in a chic and stylish £220 mustard dress designed by Karen Millen complete with a statement belt feature, Kate met with staff from the unit’s Jasmine Team which helps women affected by mental health illnesses during pregnancy and the initial postnatal period.
The specialist team collaborates with local services and charities to support the 1 in 5 pregnant women who struggle with their mental health during pregnancy.
Kate also visited the unit’s postnatal bay, where mothers are supported both during and after delivery, including mothers who have sadly lost a child, or suffered a stillbirth.
She then rounded off her visit to the Special Care Baby Unit, one of only a few units available nationally that can provide intensive treatment for poorly babies, while allowing their mothers to remain at their side – a process which is both beneficial for mother and baby.
Prince William also enjoyed a solo engagement of his own today as he visited England’s national football centre. Dressed in a sharp charcoal navy suit, Prince William wasn’t afraid of getting stuck in as he met with a team of talented young players at St. George’s Park, some 200 miles away from his wife, who was in Surrey.
Smiling in several images taken at the event, the senior royal spent several moments talking to children and staff as he browsed the purpose built facility, before giving an animated and enthusiastic speech to the children present.
The solo engagements come hot on the heels of the couple’s first official outing as the Prince and Princess of Wales last week, after receiving their new titles following King Charles’ accession to the throne.
During their brief trip to Wales, the couple visited an RNLI lifeboat station in Holyhead, Anglesey, a mere 30 minutes away from their former home – before heading to Swansea, where Kate once again championed support for mothers in need as she visited a local food and baby bank.
