Earlier this morning, the mother of three attended the Shaping Us National Symposium event at the Design Museum in London. Hosted by the Princess of Wales and her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, the conference brought together leaders and specialists in the field of early childhood to discuss how they can shape the first years of a child’s life to create a healthy transition into adulthood.
Kate Middleton Switches Up Her Hair Again to Deliver Very Important Speech
New week, new hairdo
Middleton first launched her campaign, titled Shaping Us, earlier this year. The initiative aims to reshape early childhood development and provide support to parents and children during those early (and very important) years of life.
Upon arriving at the event, Princess Catherine donned a chic purple power suit designed by Emilia Wickstead (per Harper’s Bazaar).
This latest ‘do is a huge contrast to what the royal sported just last week. On November 8, Catherine paid a visit to Norfolk to take on her role as Colonel-in-Chief of 1st the Queen’s Dragoon Guards, which is a brand-new title that was given to her by her father-in-law, King Charles.
During the trip, the Princess of Wales rocked straight hair with her ends slightly curled. From sporting loose curls to an elegant updo, Catherine has served a variety of different hairstyles, but it had been quite a while since we saw the royal mom rock straight, relaxed hair.
Now, back to the conference event. During the symposium, Middleton took center stage and delivered a moving speech about her campaign. While onstage, she talked about how much this initiative means to her.
“It is time we understood that building a healthier world means nurturing the foundations that support our children—everything from the systems that govern early care through to our attitudes to those raising the next generation, and the support they receive,” the Princess of Wales said, according to People.
“Because if we can create a society which sees the child within every adult—and the adult within every child—we will finally start to change it for the better,” she continued.
The princess added that early childhood “fundamentally shapes the adults we become.” She continued, “Trauma, stress, and adverse experiences in their childhood, have caused fundamental harm that [children] have carried for years.”
