Kate Middleton Rocks a Pink Power Suit While Championing an Important (and Deeply Personal) Cause

Kate Middleton may be determined to make a positive change in children’s lives, but that doesn’t mean she can’t do it in style.

According to Hello! Magazine, the Duchess of Cambridge just led her first roundtable with U.K. politicians as she advocated for the importance of early childhood development. This is a cause Middleton holds near and dear to her heart. During the discussion, she shared findings gathered by the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, which launched last year.

At the event, the duchess looked absolutely stunning in a pink power suit designed by Alexander McQueen (per Newsweek). She paired the look with a white shirt and pink stiletto heels. Middleton decided to wear her hair down for the event, rocking her classic middle part and loose curls.

The research the duchess highlighted found that nine out of ten people agree that the early years of childhood are crucial in shaping their lives, while less than a fifth recognize the importance of a child’s development in the first five years of life.

“We know that only a minority of people understand the critical importance of the first five years of a child's life, and this is what we really do need to change,” the duchess said during the discussion. “If we can teach children to manage their emotions and feelings at a young age, it will help them avoid having to turn to addiction, self-harm or suicide even in later life.”

She added, “Together we have a huge opportunity here to help shape the future.”

Various snapshots taken at the event were later posted to the Cambridge’s joint Instagram account. “Today was another opportunity to highlight the unique importance of the first five years and the significant impact it has on our later life outcomes,” the caption read. “This can be a complex issue but we have the opportunity to help shape the future.”

Never stop fighting for what you believe in, Kate.
