Kate Middleton fully embodied fall this evening in London when the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a long red turtleneck dress for the Forward Trust's “Taking Action on Addiction” campaign launch. Kate made a keynote speech at the event.
The campaign will “work to improve awareness and understanding of addiction, its causes and scale in society to enable more people to ask for and receive help,” per Getty.
Kate wore her hair down in waves and carried a tan purse. She accessorized with matching tan heels.
On Prince William and Kate's Twitter, the Duchess reflected on the importance of the campaign in a thread. “Addiction is not a choice,” she started. “No one chooses to become an addict, but it can happen to any one of us. None of us are immune. Yet it’s all too rarely discussed as a serious mental health condition. And seldom do we take the time to uncover and understand its fundamental root causes. The journey towards addiction is often multi-layered and complex. But, only by recognizing what lies beneath addiction, can we help remove the taboo and shame that sadly surrounds it. As a society, we need to start from a position of compassion and empathy, where we nurture those around us, understand what journey they have been on, and what has come before, and value and prioritize giving care and support, connecting individuals to the people around them. That is why I am so passionate about the work of @ForwardTrust, an organization I am so proud to be patron of. This is the work that you and so many other charities provide day in, day out. And it is needed now, more than ever.”
