Kate Middleton Launches Worldwide Nursing Campaign: 'This Means A Lot To Me Personally'

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) is all smiles while making her way inside the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist on Tuesday (February 27) in London, England.

The 36-year-old pregnant royal then visited St. Thomas’ Hospital where she took part in a roundtable discussion and delivered a speech to mark the launch of the Nursing Now campaign.

“This campaign means a lot to me personally. My great-grandmother and grandmother were both volunteer nurses,” Kate said during her speech (via People). “They would have learned first-hand from working with the Voluntary Aid Detachment and the Red Cross about the care and compassion that sometimes only nurses can provide.”

“Your dedication and professionalism are awe-inspiring. I have been struck today by the enormous range of responsibilities that nurses have, not only in providing access to healthcare, but also in terms of providing a holistic approach to caring for our physical and mental health. You also promote good health and disease prevention,” Kate continued. “I would like to congratulate and thank all nurses everywhere on what you achieve on a daily basis. The difference you make should not go unrecognized.”

FYI: Kate is wearing a Jenny Packham overcoat and dress.
