ROYAL TUTORIAL: Kate Middleton visited the Centre of Addiction Treatment Studies in Wiltshire, U.K., on Thursday morning. It was part of her role as patron of the charity Action on Addiction, which she took on when first joining the royal family.
The Duchess wore a houndstooth coat by British high-street retailer Reiss and an Emilia Wickstead dress while debuting a shorter hairstyle.
The Centre of Addiction Treatment, in partnership with the University of Bath, works toward raising the standards in the field of addiction treatment, by providing training and education to the center’s counselors.
As part of her visit, the Duchess participated in a tutorial discussing the training provided and joined the graduation ceremony of students from the Foundation and Honors degree programs accredited by the University of Bath.
This was her third appearance this week. She had attended a diplomatic dinner at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening, while on Wednesday, she visited the ICAP trading floor in support of its 23rd charity day.
