The Princess became a patron of the Forward Trust in June 2021 when the charity merged with Action on Addiction, which was one of Kate’s first patronages in 2012 following her marriage to Prince William.
The trust works in 25 prisons across the UK, helping people with issues such as drug addiction, mental health, housing and employment for those leaving prison, and improving relationships with friends and family, including children.
The tour began with the same security check that other visitors undergo when visiting the prison.

During the visit, the Princess heard about how the Forward Trust was working to help some inmates manage their addiction and help break the intergenerational trauma of addiction.
The charity provides a range of services at HMP High Down, including an intensive abstinence-based program called The Bridge and a series of workshops focused on rebuilding communication and trust with loved ones, called Family Ties .
The princess spent time with visiting family members to learn more about the visitation process.

On a related note, there is big news in the fashion industry: Sarah Burton is leaving Alexander McQueen after 26 years with the brand. We learn more Article by Elizabeth Paton in the New York Times.
Ms. Burton, 49, who has worked at Alexander McQueen for 26 years, half of them as creative director, said in the statement that the brand’s show at Paris Fashion Week later this month would be her last . No successor has yet been named.
“I am so proud of everything I have done and my incredible team at Alexander McQueen,” Ms. Burton said in the release. “I look forward to the future and my next chapter and will always carry this precious moment with me.” Below, Ms. Burton at the ELLE Style Awards in London last week.

Burton had worked under the label’s founder, Lee McQueen, for over 14 years before his untimely death in February 2010, and was named his successor in May of that year. She is credited with successfully continuing her design legacy, adapting the house’s dark, romantic codes to suit a new generation of fans, including making the princess a star client.
Of course, the designer designed the princess’s wedding dress. But she was much more, an essential “reference” for the princess, with a huge impact on her royal wardrobe.
Here you see Mrs. Burton with Mr. McQueen on her own wedding day.
We return to THE Telegraph piece by Caroline Leaper.
Although she was kind and talkative backstage at her shows, she rarely gave formal interviews and avoided the spotlight that so many other designers seek. In a 2014 interview with the Telegraph, Burton was asked if she had any interest in becoming a “star designer” and admitted that she never really wanted to be the director of a fashion house .
“There have been times where, if I could have disappeared from this industry, I would have,” she admitted. “I had to struggle with that. I don’t look like a fashion enthusiast, I’m not cool and I’ve always liked people who are good at what they do.
Ms. Leaper notes in her article that the news “sparks speculation that she may start her own label.”
Now let’s move on to what Kate wore for today’s engagement.
In some photos from today’s engagement, it looked like the princess was wearing an amethyst dress by Alexander McQueen, which we first noticed during her visit to Boston in December (bottom left). In other photos it appeared to be the navy version.
I choose the amethyst color Alexander McQueen Leaf crepe jacket ($2,510) and the high-waisted cigarette pants.
Her top appeared to be a cream or ivory knit. There is not enough detail in the photos to identify it.
It looked like the princess had some on her too Gianvito 105′ navy blue suede pumps ($795). Today the princess wore familiar jewelry, her ‘Lauren’ pave diamond leaf earrings ($2,300) by Kiki McDoungh and her Daniella Draper Midnight Moon Diamond Trio Necklace ($1700).
This is something of an abbreviated article, lacking the standard engagement details and forcing me to keep Sarah Burton news much shorter than I would like. I’m going for a little vacation!
