Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Visit UNICEF in Copenhagen With Danish Royal Couple

Posted on November 2, 2011

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge teamed up with Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Australian-born Crown Princess Mary to tour the UNICEF Emergency Distribution Center in Copenhagen in Denmark. The two royal couples made the visit to bring awareness of the crisis and famine in East Africa.

Catherine does not usually make public speeches, but answered a reporter's question while packing aid boxes. She said that she hoped their visit would "put the spotlight back on this terrible crisis." Catherine said she was shocked by the statistics and thinks that other people would also be shocked if they knew how bad thing are in East Africa. She feels the story has gotten a bit lost in the news lately. 12 million people are facing starvation in the region.

Catherine wore a Wool Melton, military-style Ami Coat from L.K. Bennett. She accessorized with a large red crocodile-embossed patent leather belt by Vecceli Italy, suede boots and the gold charm bracelet given to her by her mother-in-law, the Duchess of Cornwall.
