Kate Middleton met with a number of parents in a London park Tuesday during her latest royal outing.
The duchess learned via video call with experts of the importance of parent-powered programs and how they’ve been affected during lockdown.
Kate spoke to parents and peer supporters about their experiences of parent-to-parent support during the chat, before being pictured chatting to the moms and kids in some sweet photos.
The meetup was held in Battersea Park, for which Kate donned a casual white top, a pair of pink, high-waisted trousers, and white sneakers.
Kate said during the call, according to People, “Huge well done to all of you. I know there’s a big team of you out there in communities across the country. Both William and I hear about how vital these relationships are to families – they’re a real lifeline.
“So to you and your army of volunteers out there, a huge well done. I, like you, would love to see peer-to-peer support more embedded and celebrated in communities and society as a whole.”
Across the UK there are many thousands of parents who use their time, experience and knowledge to support other parents and families.
