The Duchess of Cambridge was looking as elegant as ever in an autumnal all-red outfit for her latest appearance on Tuesday (19 October). Kate wore a chic red turtleneck and on-trend pleated skirt to attend a charity event raising awareness about addiction.
The duchess was giving a keynote speech to launch the 'Taking Action on Addiction' campaign hosted by Forward Trust at the BAFTA headquarters in London.
The 39-year-old royal completed her coordinating outfit with Ralph Lauren point toe pumps, and her sell-out £340 micro-handbag from DeMellier.
Pleated skirts are perfect for autumn/winter, and will look equally stylish teamed with a pair of chunky ankle or knee high boots.
'Addiction is not a choice,' the duchess said in her address. '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 fully understand its fundamental root causes.'
The duchess highlighted the importance of tackling stigma and misinformation surrounding addiction and its roots in early childhood experiences.
Kate – who is Patron of the Forward Trust – met with beneficiaries of the charity and also spoke with Ant McPartlin, who has been sober since 2018 after enduring an addiction to painkillers.
On Sunday (17 October), Kate wowed royals fans by rewearing the lilac goddess gown by Alexander McQueen that she first wore to a BAFTA black-tie event in summer 2011. The duchess updated the elegant gown with a new gold belt with lilac embellishments.
