Duchess Kate Middleton Helps Out in a Research Lab

Baby Loss Awareness Week is now in its 18th year, offering bereaved parents the opportunity to commemorate their babies' lives, as well as raising awareness in the UK.

The women were supported by charities Sands and Tommy's National Center for Miscarriage Research following Miscarriage, stillbirth, and premature birth. The duchess heard how Worgan spent three days in hospital after her daughter Alice was stillborn in September 2017. And also the worst thing that ever happened to me.

Kate Middleton, 38, lived at her Norfolk home of Anmer Hall during lockdown but is now back in London, at Kensington Palace with Prince William, 38, and their children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

Visibly moved, the duchess told the young woman, "It's so fearless of you to be able to talk so openly".

The Duchess of Cambridge spoke to bereaved for Baby Loss Awareness Week.

The mother-of-three carefully peered through microscopes as she studied cells from a reproductive tract while touring the laboratory alongside scientists.

As she arrived in a floral mask at the Institute of Reproductive and Development Biology at Imperial College London, Kate put on a crisp white lab coat before she was welcomed by medical experts and representatives from the national charity Tommy's, which funds pioneering medical research to discover the causes of baby loss, helps women throughout their pregnancy journey, and offers support for partners.

The Cambridges will be able to take part in the global Wave of Light event to mark the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week at 7pm on Thursday 15 October.

Following the visit, the Queen stated on her social media pages: "Supporting families facing challenges before the birth has been a key concern for the Duchess as the early childhood initiative continues to focus on the importance of early childhood represents".

The duchess was wearing a white lab coat over her long-sleeved navy dress that hugged her figure before billowing out below the waist.

"Today's visit shows the importance of services like @Tommys and @sandscharity continue to support families across the United Kingdom and reduce miscarriages through scientific research".
