The Princess of Wales was in familiar style for an engagement with the Prince of Wales on Merseyside today.

This is the couple’s first official engagement of the year. Their day begins at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Here’s a quick video as they arrive.

Members of the royal family were there to officially open the hospital, which has been operational since last October.

Liverpool World Its story reported, “The Prince, 40, and Princess of Wales, 41, received cheers from NHS staff at the newly opened Royal Liverpool University Hospital on Thursday afternoon as they entered.”

During their visit to the critical care unit, the royals were pictured smiling with staff as they thanked them for their service. William had previously met some of the hospital’s critical care nurses on a Zoom call. He said: “So long ago, what three years?”

As the Prince and Princess of Wales stopped to talk to porters and catering staff, their staff could be heard asking about patients and their care at the hospital. After thanking them, Prince William asked: “Are you taking care of yourself?” To which they replied, yes.

Prince William was heard telling staff they do an amazing job, adding, “The hospital couldn’t run without all the care you give.”

More about the visit in a post on the hospital’s website.

Sarah Lawson was one of the critical care nurses who met the Prince of Wales. He said: “Today was very special. I met The Prince of Wales on a video call almost three years ago, so it was amazing to have the chance to meet him in person. Their Royal Highnesses are keen to talk to us about staff wellbeing and mental health. were. Everyone was over the moon to meet them.”

As mentioned above, there was quite a crowd of employees eager to see the couple.

You can imagine how many wanted selfies.

The Princess was presented with a bouquet of flowers, which included sea holly, the county flower of Merseyside, by volunteer Marjorie Jenkins. The hospital reports that Ms Jenkins “has played a key role in the transition to the new hospital and in supporting volunteers currently in A&E.”

No one would be surprised the princess wanted to spend some time with Rosie.

And a wave goodbye.

The couple’s next stop was the Open Doors charity in Birkenhead.

We learn more from Simon Perry people pieces.

…The Prince and Princess of Wales headed to a vibrant organization that supports young adults on Thursday. Birkenhead’s Open Doors charity uses culture and creativity to inspire and engage people. Prince William and Princess Kate — who have put wellness support at the heart of their public work for the past decade — immersed themselves in the charity’s exciting and colorful Bloom Building.

They spent time with Open Doors volunteers, counselors and staff to hear about progressive therapeutic models designed to help young adults face any challenge they face. The market program blends elements of cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness to provide youth and young adults ages 17 to 35 with the training, skills, tools, and techniques to understand their minds and support themselves.

Downstairs, people gathered in the “‘shroom room,” so called because of the vibrant mushroom wallpaper. I believe this chat was with Open Door mentors who have gone through the program and are now helping others.

And from this North Wales Pioneer Story:

Hearing about the work the organization does to bring together creative fields such as art and music with mental health support for young people, Kate said: “Although everyone is talking a lot about mental health now, it often has a negative association. It’s really exciting because it makes it a positive conversation about mental health, something that normalizes it so it changes the way we talk about it.”

One of the youngsters, Rees, said: “They were really down to earth. I thought it was going to be stressful but with Will and Kate it felt like I was being listened to.”

Speaking to the charity’s advisers, William said the young people were “very articulate”.

He said: “It’s not easy at this age, even as adults we don’t understand what’s going on.

The meeting was specifically with staff, I believe.

The couple heard about the Oomoo program, a project designed to help young people aged 11 – 18.

Oomoo is designed to help them navigate life’s ups and downs and offers “boxersize,” “let’s dance,” film nights and other wellness activities.

Lee Pennington, founder and director of the Open Door charity, told People it was “surreal but beautiful” to meet the couple. “It was a little nerve-wracking at first but then after a while, it was cool and interesting and cool,” he says.

“It was lovely to talk candidly with the world they live in,” he adds. “And what came through loud and clear is that they care about and value the same things in the world as the people involved in this organization. They think deeply about ‘how we can make this happen better and ensure we are developing the best systems to support people with the biggest health needs of our time – young people’s mental health needs. But boil it down and they care about the things we do.”

Now to see what Kate wore on Merseyside today.

The princess brought back her Holland Cooper double-breasted black watch coat (£749, roughly $915 at today’s exchange rate).

The outfit was first seen in a video celebrating 100 years of the Royal British Legion. Most recently, it was worn for a tree planting ceremony in December at Westminster Abbey.

Underneath the coat, the princess wore a knit dress that looked a lot like the Sefin Studio Eva Dress ($440) in navy. Made of a ribbed merino wool knit with a touch of nylon, Eva is a key piece for the label. It’s described on the site as “…the perfect versatile knit. Crafted from an ultra-soft merino-wool blend that’s both machine-washable and peel-proof, you’ll feel pulled together on even the busiest of days.”

The dress features a funnel neck (sometimes called a mock neck in the US), a fitted bodice with a flared skirt, blouson sleeves, and small pleats at the shoulders where the sleeves are set into the dress. thank you Middleton Maven For quick dress ID.

It is believed that the princess wore this same design in black when she was seen leaving Windsor Castle on September 9.

The princess carried her Amberle Small Satchel Handbag ($1035), a mulberry style first spotted during a trip to Boston last November.

Her heels appear to be navy suede Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps (at today’s exchange rates). They’re available at Net-a-Porter ($775), and My Theresa (£530, roughly $645), as well as Farfetch ($508, very limited sizes).

The princess wore her hair down with a loose curl. It could be my imagination, but it looked like the princess had several inches of her hair removed. She wore her go-to sapphire and diamond earrings.

Here is one more picture.
