Duchess Kate, who stunned onlookers in her cream Self Portrait dress and matching shoes, has a close relationship with maternity care as a mother of three and someone who had difficult pregnancies. The hardworking Duchess was so ill with severe morning sickness that she even had to be hospitalized.
Self-Portrait Tailored Crepe Midi Dress
RRP: $585 / £400 | An exact style match albeit in a slightly darker hue, Kate opted for a belt in the same color for a less waist-defining look. With a longer hem and nipped-in waist, this dress looks as if it was designed with Kate in mind.
LK Bennett Amor Pink Satin Crepe Dress
RRP: $500 / $279 | The Duchess of Cambridge often leans towards more tailored pieces, flattering her svelte silhouette. This dress reflects the distinct collar and belted style of the Self-Portrait number, but has a softer finish.
It's expected that the two royal moms will hear about all the great work being done by the organizations, to improve maternal healthcare.

In recognition of this health emergency, the UK set up a new task force to level-up maternity care and tackle disparities has been set up.
Although there is a sexist rule that stops Princess Anne from covering for the Queen, it's pretty obvious that she and other female members of the firm are much loved by the general public.
