Today, 39-year-old Kate Middleton has an important event planned for her work schedule. The Duchess of Cambridge visited Bafta's headquarters in London, where she spoke at an event for the Forward Trust, a charity that helps people with drug and alcohol addiction.
In public, the Duchess appeared in a bright image: in a red pleated Skirt (worth only $ 25) and a turtleneck to match her. Kate complemented the look with brown Ralph Lauren shoes ($ 575) and a small DeMellier handbag ($ 460).
Kate Middleton is a patron of the Forward Trust – she became her patron in June this year. In her speech, Keith emphasized the importance of combating misinformation and overcoming stereotypes associated with addiction.
Addiction is not a choice. Nobody wants to become a drug addict, but it can happen to anyone. None of us are immune from this. But this problem is rarely spoken of as a mental illness. And we rarely take the time to understand its root causes. The path to addiction is often difficult. But only by recognizing what lies at the root of addiction can we help lift the taboos and shame that sadly surround the problem. As a society, we must start from a position of compassion and empathy, where we educate those around us, understand what path they have gone and what happened before, and value and put caring and support at the forefront of everything, uniting individuals with the people around them. ,
– said Kate Middleton.
The event took place as part of Addiction Awareness Week, which is now taking place in the UK.
