Kate Middleton dons floral mask and lab coat over navy blue dress, speaks to moms at miscarriage research center
The Duchess of Cambridge was seen sporting a lab coat and a face mask while touring research facilities at the Imperial College London in order to learn about the work being done to prevent miscarriages and stillbirths.
Kate Middleton, 38, is currently back in London after being at her Norfolk home of Amner Hall. Kate had visited the Institute of Reproductive and Development Biology at Imperial College London in order to learn about the work that national charity Tommy’s are taking in order to reduce the rates of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.
The mother-of-three was seen sporting a blue floral mask and a white lab coat. Underneath it, she sported a stunning navy blue Emilia Wickstead dress for the visit. The dress was a long-sleeve, midi-length navy dress. She had accessorized the dress with a black leather belt and a pair of pointed-toe pumps.
She had also sported a floral print face mask. She had her styled to fall loosely over her shoulders and sported a pair of Alia Hoop earrings. She chose to keep her makeup natural with a pink lip and a light eyeliner, Harper's Bazaar reveals.
While on her visit, she had praised the bravery of a mother who had spoken to her about how the loss of her baby girl had inspired her to become a midwife. The woman Clare Worgan had admitted that the day her daughter Alice was born stillborn was the best and worst day of her life, Daily Mail reports.
It was because of her grief that she decided to re-train to try and help other women who were suffering the same loss. Morgan now works for the bereavement charity Sands which funds research into stillbirth, premature birth, and miscarriage spoke to Kate and confided in her that she had spent three days in a hospital in Manchester after Alice was stillborn in 2017.
Morgan shared, "We spent those three days cramming in a lifetime’s worth of memories. When she was born, she was absolutely perfect. Her birth was literally the best thing that ever happened to me. And also the worst thing that ever happened to me."
"When we went home our lives had been turned upside down. We had been devastated. A week after Alice’s funeral I decided I wanted to become a midwife, because the care I received was so amazing. I wanted to do what they had done for me," she added. "It is difficult for anyone to know what to say when a baby dies. But it is really hard for doctors and midwives. Alice literally changed my life. I feel her short little life is having quite a big impact."
Kate spoke to her and said, "It’s so brave of you to be able to talk so openly. A lot of the research, a lot of the support for organisations, is being driven by parents who have been through this experience, and want to help others. It is so inspirational."
Many social media users praised Kate for her visit and commented on the same. One such user shared, "True lady, beautiful and brave." While another added, "Such an important visit to talk to scientists and parents involved in pregnancy loss."
