Duchess Kate is pushing the boundaries of royal dressing with a bold, colorful suit.
Hosting a roundtable with government ministers, senior civil servants, and the early years sector to talk about early childhood development, a cause close to her heart, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a head-to-toe baby pink suit. She paired the ensemble with a plain white blouse, which she tucked into her high-waisted, tapered trousers.
While Kate has never been one to shy away from an opportunity to suit up, her latest look is a fun and experimental take on working royals' professional style.
As per her usual styling hack, she kept her shoes in line with the monochrome theme, opting for a pair of blush pink pumps from Emmy London. For jewelry, she wore a minimal matching set, namely a diamond pendant necklace and earrings from London-based jeweler Mappin & Webb.
Kate's Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood unveiled new research today that offers key insight to the public perception of children's development. As a result of the duchess's landmark 2020 survey, 5 Big Questions on the Under Fives, the center found that, while the majority of the public recognize that a person's future well-being is likely affected by their early childhood, only 17 percent of respondents recognized the unique importance of the zero-to-five-year age bracket.
“Our experiences in early childhood fundamentally impact our whole life and set the foundation for how we go on to thrive as individuals, with one another, as a community and as a society,” Kate said in a statement. “The findings published today present us with a huge opportunity and demonstrate there is real appetite from the public to bring this issue up all of our agendas. There is more we can all do–every member of society can play a key role, whether that is directly with a child or by investing in the adults around them–the parents, the carers, the early years workforce and more.”
She added, “If we come together to raise the importance of early childhood development, we'll soon see that healthy, happy individuals make for a healthier, happier world. Which is why every second we spend with a child, is an investment in our collective future.”
