Kate Middleton has had a busy 2018, but that isn’t stopping her from adding another role to her list of royal duties.
Kensington Palace announced on Tuesday that the Duchess of Cambridge is now a patron of Evelina London Children’s Hospital. Middleton and Prince William visited the hospital on Tuesday to learn more about its services and visit with patients.
The duchess continued her streak of festive ensembles by wearing a forest green dress that was covered in white polka dots.
The $US645 silk dress by L.K. Bennett has a long-sleeved design with a pussy-bow detail at the neck. She completed the look with a pair of $US695 suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi, which she also wore with a pantsuit while visiting military families in Cyprus on Wednesday.
The duchess spent much of her time meeting patients and families currently at the hospital, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The specialists at the hospital help children with rare and complex conditions.
“We are absolutely delighted and deeply honoured The Duchess of Cambridge has chosen to become our Patron,” Marian Ridley, Director of Evelina London, said in a statement. “The Duchess shares our passion for giving children and young people the very best start in life and Her Royal Highness’ support will help champion the life-saving care our staff are providing to our patients.”
This isn’t the first time the duchess has worn festive colours this month, as she wore a red tartan plaid skirt while attending a Christmas party at Kensington Palace last week.
Middleton and Prince William are next planning on visiting The Passage, a homeless resource center, later on Tuesday to help with preparations for its holiday party.
