GOING TO GLOUCESTERSHIRE: The Duchess of Cambridge carried on with her royal engagements, visiting Gloucestershire, England on Friday. She paid a visit to HM Prison Eastwood Park, a women’s prison and to the Nelson Trust Women’s Centre to continue her duties promoting mental health and addiction awareness.
The duchess toured the prison facilities to find out about how the institution provides aid to female prisoners and their families. She met with staff members and prisoners as well as their families.
The duchess stopped by the Nelson Trust Women’s Centre, a facility that helps women who have suffered domestic abuse. She spoke to staff members and women who have received support from the center.
Last night, she attended the U.K. premiere of “A Street Cat Named Bob” at London’s Curzon Mayfair theater. The preview was in support of Action on Addiction, a charity that aids people with drug and alcohol problems. The Duchess is a royal patron.
She met with the staff involved in the institution as well as the actors, actresses and film crew. The movie is based on James Bowen’s book, a true story of how a stray cat affected the life of a homeless man, played by Luke Treadaway.
