Kate Middleton Takes on Her Most Important Role Yet
"It's been a big week for the duchess which is of Cambridge. Who of course took on her first patch big patronage in quite a few months I think the last was the royal photographic society but this week it was announced that she she became the royal patron of family action which has of course been passed down to by the Queen? A big one for her. Yes big one but selling keeping with what her main platform has been. I think it's quite interesting. When we look at the younger generation of roles because for decades the older members of the royal family had had upwards of five hundred six hundred seven hundred patronage is? But what we're seeing with. This younger generation is a much more concentrated focused effort. And you really understand and what they're interested in so of course. This feeds indicates Very hands on work with vulnerable families disadvantaged children and she's made a big point of of fighting for children to have a good early start in life because so much evidence that supports a good early. Start being beneficial to the future so Edition I think with swim definitely and as you say this is kind of continued really. What's being almost an eight year? Focus for her. Now we've seen this kind of continued theme of community support. Family supports child supports. And not just recognizing that families are doing but also Harris Paris and people in different sectors as well family action long established Charity had been founded in eighteen. Sixty nine queen wasn't the first world. Oh Patron Queen. Mary was the royal patron before that. So it's been nice to see this. One been passed down from generation to generation. Definitely is a good continuum isn't it it's an and this This event this week wasn't case I Engagement on behalf of the charity. I I think what's really unique with this one in particular is they're trying to branch shout in as many different ways to help as many families as possible and so I think it was January that she was there when they launched the family line which is using volunteers across the country to help. Oh people through texts and emails and over the phone which that's kind of new universal. You could really tax the charity before help you can out exactly. Ah as you mentioned they did. They do all different areas. They tackle difficult issues at a families face including financial hardship emotional wellbeing socialites isolation Russian and then of course more serious things domestic abuse substance misuse. And so it came as we know has had private meetings with the charity beforehand. This is something that we're really seeing happen. Quite a lot with the younger members of the Royal Family because they are taking on less patterns Jays so they have more time to spend with each charity. It's not just cutting cutting a ribbon here and It's actually a lot more on the ground and hands on definitely and I think that focus is really benefiting the charities in terms of public awareness. Because when will we ever talking about mental health as we are today and you can look at each. I mean we keep talking about William Kate Harry making a switch of this generation. But I think that's the future isn't it with with Charles's vision of a slimmed-down monarchy but you can look at each one of those rules and you know exactly what they're interested in and they're able to use their platform to really highlight the causes that drive them that make them want to raise awareness. Raise money and really get stuck in. But I think it's interesting too as you mentioned omits mid it's no longer just unveiling a plaque cutting a ribbon. Several years ago Williams left out on the streets with the homeless to highlight the work of centerpoint Harry trekking to the poll with with wounded veterans. Megan getting hands on with the Grenfell Tower Cookbook. She was in the kitchen. She wasn't just. They're writing forward. So we're really seeing again with Keeton eighteen her Chelsea Flower Show Garden.
