Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, is in Denmark focusing on early childhood development, a key part of her charitable portfolio, as she takes on her first foreign royal tour since 2019. On the first day of the tour, Catherine met with families, childhood experts and gamely went down a slide at the Lego Foundation PlayLab.
Arriving 30 minutes late on a British Airways flight, the Duchess was greeted by the British Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
She then went on her first engagement at the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project at the University of Copenhagen.
While at the event, Catherine shared that she still thinks about having another child.
“It makes me very broody,” Kate shared when meeting with mothers and their babies. “William always worries about me meeting under one-year-olds. I come home saying, ‘Let’s have another one.'”
Catherine has three adorable children, Princes George, 8, and Louis, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 6.
Her experience with motherhood has made the Duchess a passionate advocate for understanding early childhood development.
While at the university, Catherine indulged her inner child and gamely went down a slide at the Lego Foundation PlayLab. She appeared to enjoy her time and came out with a huge grin on her face.
She told the awaiting press, “In the spirit of where I am, I had to do that.”
Wrapping up her day in an Instagram reel, the mother of three shared, “I think one of the things that really impressed me, because I hear time and time again, is how the science has been translated here into practice. All the amazing sort of research that is out there, from neuroscientists to psychologists, actually being translated into tangible language that parents are using on a day-to-day basis.”
This brief video, more than perhaps any other, shows how confident Catherine is in her royal as a senior royal.
When she began her life as a Duchess, many accused the newly minted royal of making her accent posher than her royal in-laws. But in this brief video, her language and accent are relaxed, and it appears like she’s comfortable to the point that she doesn’t feel the need to adjust her natural speaking voice.
But, of course, everyone wants to hear about the fashion.
Ever the diplomatic dresser, Catherine looked sharp wearing a red textured Zara blazer and a white ME+EM ruffled top, which symbolize the red and white Danish flag, and Gianvito Rossi pumps with a block heel. She also carried a Aspinal Midi Mayfair bag and wore a pair of pearl and gold earrings from Danish designer Maria black with a pearl necklace from Monica Vinader.
Tomorrow, Catherine will meet her older doppelganger Crown Princess Mary. The two women have similar looks and styles so it will be interesting to see how they spend the day. She is also expected to meet with Queen Margrethe as well, who is celebrating her Golden Jubilee, i.e. 50 years on the throne.
For her first foreign royal tour in over two years, it was a roaring success.
