On a gray October day, Kate Middleton Princess of Wales visited the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s maternity unit to meet with staff and hear about the holistic support it provides for pregnant women and new mothers. To contrast the overcast skies, Kate wore a simple sunshine-yellow midi dress by Karen Millen, featuring a pleated skirt, a notched neckline and puffed sleeves. As ever, she kept her accessories minimal, and wore navy heeled pumps and carried a matching suede clutch bag. She also wore white gold and diamond drop earrings by Emily Mortimer Jewellery.
The Princess will spend time at several areas of the hospital throughout the day. Upon arrival, she met with the unit’s Jasmine team, which is dedicated to helping mothers who experience mental health issues during and after pregnancy.
The hospital’s postnatal unit and special care baby unit are also on her schedule, and during Kate’s visit, she will speak to mothers and families who have received support from the Royal Surrey County Hospital staff. Kate will no doubt be a cheering presence during each encounter.
