Kate Middleton just proved that she’s committed to learning more about the causes she supports.
According to People, the duchess secretly completed some work experience in a London hospital, it was revealed this week. Kate apparently shadowed the staff in a maternity ward to learn more about how hospitals care for children.
People revealed that Kate’s work experience was included in the Court Circular on Thursday, which reveals the activities the royals have completed each week: “The Duchess of Cambridge, Joint Patron, the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, today completed two days with Kingston Hospital Maternity Unit in London.”
There are no further details about Kate’s work experience as yet, but the duchess’ work regularly focuses on the development and support of children and young people.
Back in May 2019, Kate penned a letter following her work on the Chelsea Flower Show’s Back to Nature Garden, which encouraged families to spend more time outside. The Duchess of Cambridge wrote, “The first few years of life, from conception to five, are pivotal for our future health, happiness, and ability to cope with adversity—and probably more so than at any other point of our lifetime. Understanding that our brain develops to 90 percent of its adult size within these first five years helps crystalize how our experiences in these earliest years are so impactful, and influences who we become as individuals.”
