Kate Middleton kept it chic, classic and sophisticated for an unplanned appearance at the Evelina London Children's Hospital on Thursday, September 19. The Duchess of Cambridge surprised residents while also paying a visit to the hospital's Sunshine House, the children’s development center.
Kate, 37, sported black wide leg trousers, a simple polka dotted blouse and suede black block heels. She was spotted clutching a small bouquet of yellow flowers for her surprise appearance. The mom of three let her brown locks fall onto her shoulders and she wore light makeup for the event.
The royal visited the center in order to learn more about a hospital nursing initiative called the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP). The program pairs young first-time parents with a specially-trained family nurse. The voluntary visiting program allows the nurse to help out with the family on a routine basis for the first two years of child's life.
During her day, Kate met with several young mothers and spoke with them about being parents. During one meeting, she connected with a mother named Chloe Koroma. The 22-year-old utilized the program when she was pregnant with her son, Oliver.
"It was lovely meeting the duchess," Chloe said after meeting Kate. "She asked how old Oliver is and what football shirt he was wearing. She said children grow up so quickly and she can't believe her son George is 6 already."
The brunette beauty shares three kids with husband, Prince William. The royal pair are parents to Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1.
William, 37, and Kate recently reached a milestone with their only daughter and oldest son. On September 5, the two took Charlotte and George to their first days of school. The kiddies attend Thomas's Battersea school in London. The primary school reportedly costs a whopping total of $23,000 a year to attend. The tiny tots will get to study subjects like math, science and ballet over the course of the year.
Earlier this month, Kate quietly attended a mental health seminar led by author Hope Virgo at her children's school.“Kate came up and personally spoke to me afterwards, which was nice,” Hope told People. “We spoke about the work that I do in schools, particularly for younger people, and we spoke about the importance of early intervention and prevention. She was very chatty and friendly.”
