The Duchess of Cambridge has stepped out for her first public engagement of 2022 with her husband, Prince William, as they visit the Foundling Museum in London.  

It comes after the Cambridges spent Christmas with the Middletons in Norfolk and celebrated Kate’s 40th birthday earlier this month.

Prince William and Kate are meeting representatives from the care sector, including those with direct experience of living in care.

The Foundling Museum tells the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity which was founded in 1739 as a home for children whose mothers couldn’t keep or care for them. The Museum delivers training, mentorship programmes and creative projects, led and developed by contemporary artists, writers and musicians, to continue to use creative action to transform and improve the lives of care-experienced young people.

During their visit, the Duke and Duchess will join a roundtable discussion and they will then spend time with individuals who have experience of the care system, including author and poet Lemn Sissay, former track and field athlete Kriss Akabusi, and writer Allan Jenkins.

Kate, who is committed to raising awareness of the importance of early childhood experiences, became patron of the Foundling Museum in 2019.
