SILVER BELLE: The Duchess of Cambridge on Friday paid a visit to the Send women’s prison in Surrey, England, to meet with the Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust (RAPt), a charity that aids prisoners addicted to drugs and alcohol. She wore a white-and-silver tweed dress by British label The Fold.
“I was reminded today how addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues and how substance misuse can play such destructive role in vulnerable people’s lives,” said the Duchess of Cambridge in a statement released by Kensington Palace following the visit.
She added: “I am grateful to the women I met for sharing their difficult personal stories with me. It is encouraging to learn how organizations like RAPt are offering specialist support to help people break the cycle of addiction and look forward to a positive and crime-free life.”
