The Fostering Network is the UK’s leading foster care charity and helps highlight the amazing volunteers who offer up their home. The Duchess’ visit was meant to help promote the organization and inspire people to get involved.

Although not patron of the charity, it does sit well with the Kate’s own interests, most of which concern the wellbeing of children.

Just after her arrival, the Duchess joined a round table discussion with foster caregivers, young adults who have been fostered, and senior staff from The Fostering Network.

After the discussion, she sat down to a mid morning snack of cupcakes and chocolate brownies with energetic group of younger children and their foster caregivers, while being told more about their work.

Before she left, Kate was given a memory box filled with stories and poems written by current and former foster children.


For this engagement the Duchess returned to one of her favorite high street brands. She looked elegant in a previously worn ‘Animal Shirt Dress’ by Hobbs London ($95 and sold out). The brown silk frock has been updated with animal-print embossed silk jacquard. Kate cinched it with a coordinating belt, which she tied in a bow above her baby bump.
