The Duchess of Cambridge is interested in their research which will track the holistic development of children from the age of nine months to five years. Ahead of her engagement, the Duchess said: “Our early childhoods shape our adult lives and knowing more about what impacts this critical time is fundamental to understanding what we as a society can do to improve our future health and happiness. The landmark ‘Children of the 2020s’ study will illustrate the importance of the first five years and provide insights into the most critical aspects of early childhood, as well as the factors which support or hinder positive lifelong outcomes.
“I am committed to supporting greater in-depth research in this vital area and I’m delighted to be meeting all those behind the study at this early stage.”
For her outing, the Duchess wore a gorgeous grey, black, and white checked dress with a pussy-bow collar from the high street favourite, Zara.
Kate previously wore this stunning number during a visit to Bradford in 2020.
The dress originally retailed for £89.99 from Zara and is a midi-length dress with a monochrome houndstooth check print.

It also features long balloon sleeves, which have certainly come back into fashion in 2021.
This is not the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has recycled an outfit, as she has built a positive reputation for doing so over her 10 years as a working royal.
Kate teamed the ensemble with her grey Hugo Boss pumps and accessorised with her Mappin & Webb Empress earrings.
