Kate was out to visit the Foundling museum in London, which explores the interesting history of the Foundling hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery. The hospital was founded in 1739 by philanthropist Thomas Coram to care for babies at risk of abandonment. Today the charity continues as Coram, among their programs is a creative therapies program which uses music and art to enable vulnerable children to express themselves and make sense of their world.
Kate, who was an art history major at the university of St Andrews has been a long-term patron of similar program The Art Room, which works in British schools to use art as a therapeutic tool to help children facing emotional difficulties thrive and visited Inner city arts at Skid Row in LA during her first Royal tour where she painted a snail.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
Upon arrival the press immediately greeted Kate with questions regarding the engagement of Harry and Meghan. She responded with ‘William and I are absolutely thrilled. Its such exciting news. Its really a happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment’Embed from Getty Images
Kate then toured the galley before taking part in an arts and crafts class with the children. She wore a new Kate Spade diamond dress from Kate Spade. Items in the same print have been found in a skirt, jacket and pants but the exact dress has not yet been located, giving some hope that it may be in an upcoming collection, will be music to the ears of replikaters who have found this year to be increasingly difficult to source available and affordable replikate outfits. She accessorized with her Gianvito Rossi ‘Gianvito 105’ Royale Burgundy suede pumps and a cranberry colored suede Mulberry clutch. She wore her familiar diamond and sapphire drop earring which previously belonged to Princess Diana and were remodelled for Kate and gifted to her by William after their engagement.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
