Kate Middleton set to visit Action on Addiction centre next month

According to Hello!, the Duchess, née Kate Middleton, will visit the centre, which is located in Warminster, on December 10.

The royal mother, 33, who has been a patron of the charity since January 2012, is also set to attend a ceremony marking the graduation of students from the Foundation and Honours degree programmes accredited by the University of Bath.

Kate was pregnant with Princess Charlotte when she attended the Autumn Gala Evening Dinner for Action on Addiction in October 2014, looking ravishing in a black Temperley dress.

Action on Addiction, in association with the University, trains addiction advisers at a higher level.

“We’re all excited about HRH The Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to our Centre for Addiction Studies (CATS) next month!” Action on Addiction tweeted on November 27.

The royal visited Send Women’s Prison in September, where she met inmates who had been victims of various addictions.

After her visit to the women’s prison, Kensington Palace shared Duchess Kate’s thoughts on its official Twitter account.

“Addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues .. substance misuse can play such a destructive role in vulnerable people’s lives,” she said. “Failure to intervene early in life to tackle mental health problems and other challenges can have profound consequences.”

“I am grateful to the women I met for sharing their difficult personal stories with me,” the Duchess added.

The last time Kate and William’s baby girl, who will turn seven months the day after tomorrow, on December 2, was in the public eye was at her baptism on July 5 at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk, where her late grandmother Princess Diana was also christened.

Now her parents, both 33, shared with their Royal well-wishers on Saturday, November 29, two adorable snapshots of their daughter, taken by her mother in early November at Anmer Hall. Charlotte was dressed up in a m&h print floral dress and pink tights from Amaia, which is one of Duchess Kate’s favorite children’s clothes designer.

Prince William talked about his adorable children during a visit to St. John’s College at Cambridge University where the Duke opened a new archive center in October.

Kate Middleton supports the hospital where she gave birth to Princess Charlotte and Prince George

On Tuesday, The More Smiles Appeal was released by charity COSMIC and Imperial College Healthcare Charity. It is a fundraising program with the objective of raising £2million for the redevelopment of the respective unit at St Mary.
Kate Middleton released a statement about how she will offer her full support to this project.

“The thought of your child in an intensive care unit is harrowing for any parent. The commitment to expand and transform the Children’s Intensive Care Unit at St Mary’s Hospital will vitally guarantee more space to treat more children and support more families,” Duchess Kate said.

“As someone who was so brilliantly cared for by St Mary’s, I am delighted to support the Children’s Intensive Care Appeal, and commend the important work of all those involved in the project.”

This fundraising program will help more than 200 extra children get treatment because the unit is expected to twice the current number of beds.

In addition, a dedicated parents’ room and a private room will provide doctors and nurses with the space needed to offer emotional support to the relatives of children with serious conditions.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to her son Prince George in 2013, on July 22, and to her daughter Princess Charlotte, this year on May 2, in the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s hospital.

Miranda Lambert talks about marriage to Blake Shelton: ‘We Gave It Our Best College Try’

The 32-year-old musician opened up to Cosmopolitan magazine [via Entertainment Tonight] about how she handles the divorce from the 39-year-old country singer, who is currently in a new romance with The Voice co-star Gwen Stefani, and about her life after the separation.

“Marriage is a tough business, and we gave it our best college try,” The Little Red Wagon star told the magazine.

Lambert maintains a positive attitude towards her ex and she admits that she’s not ready for a new relationship yet, as she is still processing the split.

“I had a great relationship with an amazing man, so I know what good is. I have a great launching pad for the future. I will never take that for granted,” she said.

“Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, ‘Man, this sucks right now.'”

Lambert broke down in tears on stage a few days after announcing her and Blake’s divorce in July, during a performance of “The House That Built Me.”

Prince George “loves being outside,” his grandfather Prince Charles says

HRH Duchess of Cambridge

In an interview with Sky News, the royal, 67, revealed that his grandson, 2, is “one of those characters who naturally, instinctively likes to be outside.”

“It’s very interesting. I’m intrigued to see if it lasts,” Prince Charles said. “But he loves being outside, which is encouraging. Like all these things, it depends if you can get them to take an interest.”

The Prince of Wales is hoping to pass his attention and enthusiasm for the environment on to his grandson.

“Like all these things, it depends if you can get them to take an interest,” the British royal said. “But half of it comes from explaining the minutiae of life sometimes, or getting people to look carefully at something, even watching a bird or observing carefully a flower or how a building sits in the environment and the landscape. All of these things are part of the intricate detail and pattern of life, which we can’t exist without.”

In fact, Prince George is a great helper as he has already planted trees with his grandfather at Charles’ house, Highgrove House, in Gloucestershire.

Over the years Prince Charles has transformed his garden at Highgrove House in a truly spectacular place where his grandchildren can enjoy a magical atmosphere.

After birth of their second child, Princess Charlotte, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left Kensington Palace and headed to a quiet idyllic place in Norfolk, where the royal couple owns a country home, Anmer Hall.

“The guy in charge of the princes was like ‘The Prince is coming! The Prince is coming!’ So I didn’t have time to dry my hands,” she told the host. “So I curtseyed and I said, ‘Oh good evening, your Royal Highness. It’s such a pleasure to meet you. I’m sorry my hands are wet, I just washed them and I didn’t have time to dry them. He looked at me and said, ‘Well, at least they’re clean!'”

She added, “He just made me feel so good.”
