Kate Middleton and Prince William Visited the Hospital Where Kate Was Born


    Kate Middleton and Prince William made an especially meaningful stop on their tour aboard the Royal Train Tuesday, visiting the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading—where Kate was born in 1982. There, the Cambridges thanked nurses for their "tireless work" throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a post on their official Instagram account.

    Kate and William's first stop on Tuesday was Cardiff, where they spoke to college students about their experience of the pandemic (and toasted a few marshmallows while they were at it). Next, they visited a care home in Bath, speaking to care staff about the new challenges they faced due to COVID-19, before arriving at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.

    The Duchess of Cambridge made a few outfit tweaks along the way. In Cardiff, she rewore her red Alexander McQueen coat, her tartan Emilia Wickstead midi skirt, and her black Grace Han handbag, debuting a tartan scarf to match the skirt. Arriving in Bath, Kate ditched the scarf, wearing a pretty Amaia face mask (which has, of course, sold out). And at the hospital, she revealed a new tartan style by Emilia Wickstead—but unsurprisingly, that's now sold out too.

    For the last stop on the tour, Kate and William met the Queen at Windsor Castle for a socially distanced tribute to volunteers and key workers, also attended by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Princess Anne, as People reports. "After listening to a selection of Christmas carols performed by the @salvationarmyuk band, The Duke and Duchess greeted a number of local volunteers and key workers from organisations and charities in Berkshire, who will be volunteering or working to help others over the Christmas period," a statement on the Cambridges' Instagram read. And with that, the Royal Train tour came to an end!
