The Duchess of Cambridge stepped into the role of interviewer to mark International Day of the Midwife on Wednesday (5 May) at the end of a special campaign that began back in 2018.

As patron of Nursing Now - a three-year global campaign to raise the status and profile of nursing - Kate interviewed Ugandan midwife Nayiga for the May edition of Nursing Times magazine.

Harriet is the founder and director of MILCOT (Midwife-led Community Transformation), a community organisation that offers advice and support for vulnerable women and girls in Uganda.

During their virtual chat, Kate spoke to Harriet about her important work and how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected things.

The duchess dressed up for her role as interviewer, wearing a bright blue blazer for the chat.

In a photo shared on the official @KensingtonRoyal Instagram account, royal fans also got a rare look at the back of her polished half-up, half-down hairdo, which showed pins holding her softly blow-dried hair in place to perfection.

Kate's interview with Harriet can be read in full in the May issue of Nursing Times, with a cover specially chosen by the duchess.
