Wearing LK Bennett‘s “Ami” coat in burgundy (currently on sale) cinched with a belt by Vicceli Italy, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William joined Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and her husband, Crown Prince Frederik at the UNICEF emergency supply center today (November 2nd) in Copenhagen, Denmark. There, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge viewed efforts to distribute emergency food and medical supplies to Eastern Africa, where severe food shortages are affecting millions of people.
According to the Telegraph, Catherine told an aid worker that she intends to visit Kenya soon to see for herself the widespread crisis. In 1993, Diana, Princess of Wales visited a Red Cross in Zimbabwe to feed starving children, so Catherine’s tentative decision to focus on famine relief in Africa is yet another way she paying homage to her late mother-in-law.
A royal source told the Telegraph, “A visit to Africa is certainly something the couple are considering. It may be some time before they could fit it into their schedule, but it certainly isn’t being ruled out.” The paper speculates that William and Catherine may visit Kenya next June, following the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
When TRH were offered a taste of the high-protein peanut butter paste made for malnourished children, Catherine politely declined. William, however, had a taste, as did Prince Frederik and Princess Mary.
Princess Mary, like Catherine, was born a commoner before marrying her prince. The Australian-born beauty, 39, met Frederik at a bar in Sydney during the 2000 Summer Olympics.
Catherine has also been named UK Harper’s Bazaar‘s Best Dressed Britain of 2011, according to E!. Editor Lucy Yeomans wrote of HRH, “She gave us the year’s—if not the century’s—most thrilling fashion moment at the royal wedding, and is shaping up as an amazing ambassador for British designers and the high street.”
