This Thursday, November 17, Kate Middleton went to her hometown
The Princess of Wales met Ukrainian refugees
She wore a symbolic outfit
For Kate Middleton, it was a particularly moving engagement. This Thursday, November 17, the Princess of Wales visited the Ukrainian community center in Reading to meet refugees who fled the war. In her hometown, the Duchess of Cambridge spent long minutes chatting with mothers who left everything when they left Ukraine when the conflict broke out. And for this outing, Kate Middleton once again needed flawless dress. For the occasion, Prince William’s wife wore her elegant Max&Co camel coat, which sold for 460 pounds. But it is especially her dress that caught the eye. For once, she bet on the polka dot pattern, which she wears very regularly and which suits her perfectly. This time around, she donned a signature LK Bennett look at 279 pounds.
And this transparent midi dress was also a symbolic and committed choice on the part of Kate Middleton. Rather accustomed to wearing this pattern in black and white, the Princess of Wales had chosen a navy blue dress and yellow polka dots, a direct reference to the flag of Ukraine. Regarding accessories, the mother of George, Charlotte and Louis embellished her elegant outfit with a pair of timeless pearl earrings and a quilted black leather clutch. The Ukrainian Community Center in Reading she visited is home to the Berkshire branch of the Association of Ukrainians in Britain, the largest association for Ukrainians and people of Ukrainian descent in the UK.

Kate Middleton “overwhelmed” by this commitment
Since the start of the war, the community center has set up educational classes for children and organizes weekly coffee mornings to provide the Ukrainian community with practical advice and support on employment and housing. Upon arrival, the Princess of Wales received a traditional Ukrainian cake as a gift before meeting volunteers to learn more about how they have adapted their services over the past few months. Kate Middleton then met with a few families to hear their heartbreaking personal stories. And she was upset. “Life goes on and you have loved ones and family in Ukraine, they still see the horrors of war every day, she explained to a young woman. I am so impressed by your bravery and your resilience that I am upset.”
“It was very easy to talk to her, she has a big heart, said a refugee. She tried to make me feel better and said that everything was fine and said that here we can find a job and live because we can’t go back to Ukraine.” During her moving visit, the Princess of Wales also took part in an art session for children. After her visit, she thanked the association on Twitter. “The inspiring work of the Reading Ukrainian Community Center is ongoing and life-changing,” wrote the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. social ties, the center is at the heart of the community.”
