Today (March 19th) the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit the offices of Child Bereavement UK in Buckinghamshire, England, a charity set up to support families who have lost a child, as well as those who have lost a parent.
Prince William has been a patron of the CB UK for three years now, and in October 2011, he and 100 Women in Hedge Funds raised almost $1 million dollars for the cause. According to the Daily Mail, the money goes towards training professionals to provide ongoing support to grieving families.
That event, held at St. James’s Palace, saw the Duchess of Cambridge in a gorgeous red gown by Beulah London.
Today, Catherine wore Topshop‘s black “Contrast Collar” dress under Goat‘s “Redgrave” coat, according to Grazia Magazine. You may recognize the court shoes, as they were the same ones that got caught in a grate while HRH greeted the Irish Guards on Sunday (March 17th).
The late Princess of Wales once visited the charity, run by her friend, Julia Samuel. Inside, William and Catherine met with Training and Fundraising, and were then introduced to bereaved families involved in the Children and Young People’s Service, the Young People’s Advisory Group and a Parents’ Support Group.”
In 2009, William gave a touching speech at CB UK’s 2009 Mother’s Day campaign launch.
“Never being able to say ‘Mummy’ again in your life sounds like a small thing. However, for many, including me, it’s now really just a word – hollow and evoking only memories,” the Prince said.
