A royal re-wear!
The Duchess of Cambridge ended a very busy week on Friday to help open The Nook in Norwich, a new hospice center that is part of East Anglia's Children Hospices, of which Kate is a patron. The royal has worked with EACH for over eight years and was instrumental in helping raise the center's $13 million dollars required to open the new state-of-the-art building dedicated to severely ill children.
As part of today's visit, the duchess met with families who have been supported by EACH and toured the building's new amenities for its patients, including its sensory room, therapy room, hydrotherapy pool and music studio.
"She hasn’t lost the common touch," said EACH's chief executive Graham Butland to PEOPLE on working with the royal. "She can still empathize with the children and families who we care for. Whenever she comes — and with private visits without the gaze of the press — the feedback we get from families is tremendous.”
The smiling duchess brought some cheer to the emotional visit, wearing a magenta Oscar de la Renta skirt suit, which she paired with her Aspinal clutch and a pair of Gianvito Rossi pumps. She previously donned the look for the Health Writers conference in 2017 and back in January for an engagement at the Royal Opera House.
The engagement on Friday follows a few busy days for the royal family. This past weekend, Kate and William joined the rest of the monarchy for a number of events to mark Remembrance Sunday, which commemorates Britain's fallen service men and women. The mom-of-three stepped out again on Tuesday alongside Prince William to meet with volunteers from Shout, the UK's first Crisis Text Line which they launched with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May.
