Kate Middleton has continued her Royal duties after enjoying The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations with her family.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, attended Little Village, a children’s charity centre in Brent, to meet with staff and volunteers offering necessities to families with children under five in need.

The Duchess looked elegant in business attire, wearing a cream blazer paired with black trousers. Sporting a more natural look, Kate left her hair down and wore a perfectly suited brown smokey eye and a natural lip.

Kate helped choose clothes and equipment for a family who was in attendance at the centre, marking the 20,000th package handed out by the charity.

The Duchess shared a photo from the engagement saying it was great to see the way the charity helped families in need.

“From providing toys, clothes and essential items for young children, to linking local families with key services, @LittleVillageHQ baby banks support families across London,” she wrote on Instagram.

“It’s wonderful to hear how volunteers work closely with each individual family to understand their personal needs, providing tailored support in a way that ensures they are treated with love, kindness and dignity.”

CEO of Little Village, Sophie Livingston MBE said the visit from the Duchess will help in gathering further support for the charity.

“We were all absolutely delighted to welcome The Duchess of Cambridge to Little Village Brent. She met some of our staff and volunteers and helped to pick out some beautiful items of clothing for the family’s two young children,” Livingston said.

“The Duchess really took her time to talk our staff and volunteers, who all said how down to earth she was and how engaged and interested she was in the work of Little Village.

“This is set to be our busiest year yet, and we expect to see a thousand more children than we did in 2021 and we know that baby banks across the country are facing similar demand.

“This boost from The Duchess will help to shine a light on the work of baby banks and will hopefully lead to increased support for their much-needed work.”

Little Village shared words from a Mum who met the Duchess at the event, on Twitter.

Kate has dedicated much of her work to ensuring better care for children and families, launching The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Learning which focuses on providing the best care from pregnancy to five years old.

The Royal attended the opening of the Royal College for Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG) in London, in April 2022, which will be working alongside the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) to improve maternity care.
