Sombre Duchess Of Cambridge Attends A Memorial Service For Grenfell Victims
Dressing perfectly for a particular occasion is never a thing she does wrong. Thirty-five-year-old Duchess of Cambridge and soon-mother-of-three looked more than elegant in a navy coat and a simple hat, paired with block-heeled suede shoes, as she accompanied Prince William and Harry at St Paul’s Cathedral in London for a memorial service on December 14.
Kate Middleton attended a memorial service for victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy which took 71 lives on June 14. She wore a navy coat with silver buttons, designed by Carolina Herrera paired with a simple, wide-brimmed hat. Moreover, the Duchess had a pair of Jimmy Choo suede block-heeled shoes on, a recent favorite because of her pregnancy.
The Grenfell Tower went ablaze in June and killed 71 people, leaving 70 more injured while hundreds were left homeless. The memorial was attended by more than 1500 people, half of which were families and survivors. Others included members of the wider community and volunteers.
Kate also visited the Rugby Portobello Trust at its community center in the North Kensington part of the British capital – a place where survivors stayed after the tragedy. The 35-year-old helped distribute the donated funds to the families in need, in addition to meeting privately with affected families.
The Duchess told a group of youngsters in a music therapy workshop: “It’s amazing for all of you to have this support, particularly at such a difficult, such a tragic time.”
