The Princess of Wales chose an Emilia Wickstead design for today’s engagement at Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child.
A gentleman whose office is adjacent to the center shared a video of the scene when the princess arrived this morning.
So Kate Middleton came to visit Harvard today, and she’s coming to the floor right above where I work.

As the princess is welcomed.
Here you see him signing the Harvard Guestbook.

A news release from Kensington Palace noted that the Harvard Center has long been a friend of the Royal Foundation and most recently the Foundation’s Early Childhood Centre, which has supported past research on the importance of the early years.
More on today’s engagement with this piece posted on the Center for Early Childhood site.
His Royal Highness met members of the team and had the opportunity to hear about how research and advances in science can be applied to policy and practice to achieve a more promising future for every child.
The visit was an opportunity to highlight the importance of collaboration between international organizations in showcasing and sharing best practices.
By Richard Palmer Express Note that the Princess was taking notes throughout today’s meeting.
Returning to the Royal Foundation’s online section about today’s events.
The center’s director, Jack Shankoff, described the visit “Fantastic opportunity for shared learning as part of a global effort to improve life outcomes for young children.”
He raised several important areas where science is pointing to new techniques. First, the interconnection between the brain and the rest of the body and the importance of linking education and health agendas; The second is the effects of the broader context and environment in which families raise young children on developmental outcomes.
And from Amanda Berry, CEO of The Prince and Princess of Wales’ Royal Foundation:
“We are grateful to the Harvard Center on the Developing Child for hosting such an interesting session and sharing their latest thinking. There are many opportunities to work more collaboratively, as our missions are so aligned, and I look forward to more collaboration between the two teams in the future.”
After the engagement, the princess decided to take a walkout.
In another way.

More on the crowd’s reception from this WCVB story.
“So much kindness. And I love that they’re here in Boston committed to making the world a better place,” said Maria Dominguez of Boston.
People across the country braved the cold and found a good spot for a chance to catch a glimpse of Princess Catherine during one final appearance of the royal couple’s three-day tour in and around Boston.
“Being from Kentucky, they weren’t going to get there anytime soon, so we jumped on a plane and came up here,” said Tessa Powell.
“I had a royal wedding party, so I’m a big fan,” said Renee Wolbert, who is visiting from New York.
In this video, you can hear people thanking the princess for coming out to see her.

The princess posed for a selfie or two.
Now see what Kate wore for today’s engagement.
Princess Emilia wore a custom version of the Miles dress by Wickstead.
Featuring a fitted, tailored silhouette made from textured georgette that’s 97% polyester and 3% elastane for stretch and ease of movement. The design features a distinctive houndstooth print, point collar, darting at the waist and a hidden back zipper. I think the blue/maroon/ivory print is a nod to the colors of the US flag. The image includes a shot of the belt the princess added to her dress.
The Princess carried a new Mulberry handbag, the Harlow satchel style, similar to the style shown below, but in cornflower blue. The bag is a top-handle style with a double-flap front closure, a detachable shoulder strap and an updated version of Mulberry’s signature rider’s lock closure, a twist ring design. It is lined in suede, measures roughly 9″ x 7″ and has two interior compartments.
The princess wore a new pair of earrings by London designer Lennick Lewis, Gold Spine Hoop Earrings (£285) crafted in 18-carat gold vermilion over sterling silver. The earrings are described as “a playful take on coral reef, easy to wear and light”. The design is also the brand’s bestselling style.
The brand is owned and designed by Lenick Louis and specializes in handcrafted, made-to-order jewelry. More from this Harper’s Bazaar UK Pieces:
…Magician Lennik Lui creates beautiful handmade statement rings using an ancient lost wax technique and was inspired by a trip east of the Eden Coral Reef in Thailand.” My philosophy is to create exclusive handmade one-of-a-kind rings,” she says
Backed by the Prince’s Trust and Into Enterprises, after interning with Stephen Webster and Garrard, Lenick decided to create her own handmade jewellery.
Ms Louis is also a Prince’s Trust Ambassador and noted that she had the pleasure of meeting King Charles for the second time last November.
While the princess was at Harvard, Prince William visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. Here you are greeted by Carolyn Kennedy and her children, Jack and Tatiana Schlossberg.

Ambassador Kennedy and his children accompanied Prince William on a brief tour around the library and museum, which highlighted JFK’s political legacy and his Moonshot program – which challenged America to land a man on the moon and which served as the main inspiration for his Earthshot award.
During the tour, William was shown exhibits from the pivotal years of the Kennedy administration in the 1960s before the 1969 moon landing, including a replica of JFK’s famous ‘We Choose to Go to the Moon’ speech, which he gave at the Rice ceremony. University, Houston, in September 1962, notifying the public of its mission to land a man on the moon before 1970.
‘Unbelievable,’ said William, looking at the speech.
And the prince also met President Biden, who was in town for a reception.
