The Princess of Wales is following in her father-in-law's footsteps.
This morning, Princess Kate ventured on a solo outing to Harvard University's Center on the Developing Child, where she heard from the institution's experts on how the center drives research and development in order to better inform the policies affecting children who face adversity.
During her visit, Kate signed the university's guest book—more than three decades after King Charles signed his own name during his visit to the campus in the fall of 1986. A photograph of the two signatures captures the royals's writing side-by-side.
At the time of his visit, the then-Prince of Wales gave a speech to celebrate the university's 350th anniversary.
Kate's visit to the Harvard Center this morning marked another step in her work in early childhood development. She has long championed the significance of the field in her charitable work as a senior royal. Last year, she launched The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, a passion project which aims to commission research and lead campaigns on improving the conditions of young children.
"If we are going to tackle the sorts of complex challenges we face today like homelessness, violence and addiction, which are so often underpinned by poverty and poor mental health, we have to fully appreciate those most preventative years and do everything we can to nurture our children and those who care for them," the royal wrote. "That is why I am determined to continue to shine a light on this issue and to do everything I can to secure much greater focus on those first crucial few years for the youngest members of our society - they are, after all, our future."
