Princess Kate attended the pre-launch event for her new early childhood development advocacy campaign while dressed in all-red.
The Princess of Wales stated in an open letter published over the weekend that the Shaping Us initiative, which aims to raise public awareness of the importance of a child’s first five years of life, will be led by her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood. Kate and Prince William teamed up for an event at London’s BAFTA to promote the upcoming business. The princess dressed to impress for the event in a sexy pantsuit that featured a plunging wrap blazer and flared slacks. She matched her accessories to the hot color scheme, choosing fiery red suede shoes and a clutch that matched. William wore a navy blue suit with a red tie to match his wife’s outfit.
“During our very early childhood, our brains develop at an amazing rate—faster than any other time of our lives,”Kate stated in her letter launching her campaign. “It is a time where we lay the foundations and building blocks for life. It is when we learn to understand ourselves, understand others and understand the world in which we live. But as a society, we currently spend much more of our time and energy on later life. I am absolutely determined that this long-term campaign is going to change that.”
She ended the note by writing, “I urge everyone reading this, to take the opportunity to learn more about this incredible time of life, to think back to your own childhood and how it shaped you, and most importantly, to ask yourselves what you can do to make the world a more supportive and loving place for our children.”
