Kate Middleton Re-Wears Her Poppy-Print Dress for a Tour of Mental Health Charities
The royals were out in full force Wednesday morning, doing good and looking good. Kate Middleton and Prince William traveled to Luton, a town located about 35 miles north of London, for a day-long tour packed with visits to local youth and mental health organizations. As part of their visit, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will participate in discussions about the mental health and emotional well-being of the area's young people—issues that are very close to their hearts.
For the official event, the princess re-wore a sheath dress emblazoned with flirty blue poppies from one of her favorite designers L.K. Bennett and accessorized her vibrant summer look with nude, pointed-toe pumps and a pair of blue earrings. Beside her, William looked handsome (per usual) in a tweed blazer, navy trousers, and brown shoes.
Their visit began with a stop at Luton's sprawling Bute Mills space, which reopened more than $4 million worth of renovations transformed it into a new home for the national youth charity, Youthscape. The royal couple also stopped in at CHUMS, a child bereavement service, to discuss their support for young people affected by suicide.
Luton is one of many stops in the couple's country-wide campaign to end the stigma surrounding issues of mental health as part of Heads Together, an initiative they recently founded with Prince Harry.
