The Duke and Duchess are attending the BAFTA Awards Ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 18 February. The Duchess faces a fashion dilemma on the night: actresses are planning on wearing black for the event in support of Time’s Up movement, but as a member of the Royal Family, the Duchess has to avoid everything that could be seen as a political statement. Many are looking forward to the glittering event, and as usual, you can read everything on the blog later.
Furthermore, the agenda of the Duchess is fastly filling up for the rest of February. The Duchess, heavily pregnant with her third child, is thought to begin her maternity leave mid-March before giving birth in April.
On 5 February, The Duke of Cambridge attended the UK Chamber of Shipping’s Annual Dinner at the Park Lane Hilton. HRH is president of United for Wildlife, which tries to end illegal trade in protected species. In a speech, he highlighted the effort that the organisation is making in their actions on protecting the wildlife on the planet.
On Wednesday, The Duchess of Cambridge opened a new Action Addiction community-based treatment centre in Essex. The centre offers a nine-week recovery program for addicts. The Duchess also launched the charity’s community-based recovery programme ‘Clouds in the Community’. She chatted to partipants and staff before officially opening the new centre. The Duchess has been Royal Patron of the organisation since 2012. HRH wore a new royal blue coat from the label GOAT, Stuart Weitzman pumps, a Beulah London bag and tanzanite jewellery.
Thursday was a very busy day for the Duke: he attended the annual Centrepoint Awards at Kensington Palace forpeople who try to end youth homelessness and made a surprise visit to a school assembly on cyberbullying and mental health. He talked with students and teachers about Stop Speak Support, a digital code that helps young people navigate life online.
