Kate Middleton wore one of her signature blouses by designer Tory Burch to deliver an important message on addiction.


Kate Middleton was announced as patron of The Forward Trust in 2021, empowering people with addictions to seek help. The Princess of Wales discussed the 'Taking Action on Addiction' campaign in the video on behalf of The Forward Trust, which is a British charity that helps people with drug and alcohol dependence.

The silk shirt is an elegant choice, with a blue and white polka dot print, featuring a scalloped-edge collar and white cuffs which elevate it to dreamy style levels. Sadly, due to the famous 'Kate effect,' the blouse is now sold out online.

The Princess teamed the statement piece with beautiful earrings; gold hoops adorned with Baroque pearl drops (there are plenty of statement pieces in the early Black Friday jewelry deals if you want to recreate the look).

It's not the first time that Catherine has been spotted in this item, wearing her stunning Tory Burch silk shirt during engagements in Wolverhampton in 2021.

Alongside the video, the Princess of Wales wrote, "Today, during #AddictionAwarenessWeek, I want to offer a message of support to those who are continuing to suffer. I know this was not a choice. Recovery is possible."

Kate's exact blouse has, of course, sold out but this Monki version has a scalloped collar that can't be ignored! Team with skirts and jeans for the coolest fall look around.

Fans were quick to comment on the Princess of Wales' video, praising her support of The Forward Trust.

One wrote on Twitter in reply to Catherine's post, "Addicts are often forgotten in society as some people see them as a problem. I agree with the #PrincessofWales, most addiction has a root cause, something you are trying to block out, run from or some are unfortunately born into it. Thank you for highlighting."

While a second said, "I agree as a society there is a tendency to blame/shame, we don’t see the person, or underlying suffering.. we just see the addiction.. it’s great that the Princess of Wales is increasing awareness."

While a third wrote, "She's right. Attitudes do need to change, addiction is an illness as much as anything. Really. People need to not judge a person off outward appearance."
