It’s been a while since we’ve seen Kate Middleton sporting a headband, but for a private visit to Baby Basics UK in West Norfolk, a charity which supports new mothers and families in need by providing them with essentials like toiletries, clothing, and essential baby equipment, the Duchess stepped out in her signature accessory, which she paired with a green printed maxi shirtdress and a casual pair of white sneakers.
After seeing the work the organization was doing and their needs, she spearheaded a donation drive. Per Kensington Palace, 19 brands have donated items to Baby Basics, Little Village and AberNecessities, which operate baby banks across the UK.

Today, Kate helped unpack donations at a different branch of the charity, Baby Basics UK in Sheffield, where she also spoke with parents about the need for these resources in the community.
“Over recent months, I have heard from families who have been supported by baby banks through the most difficult of times and I have been deeply moved by their stories,” Kate said in a statement. “Having somewhere to turn to for support is important for all families, and baby banks work every day, up and down the country, to provide immediate, tangible and practical help for parents and carers when they are most in need.”
The Duchess of Cambridge also called out “incredible” work volunteers do to keep these groups running.
“Baby banks are driven by incredible volunteers, demonstrating the power of community spirit in supporting families and coming together to raise the next generation. Thanks to the generosity of the companies taking part in this initiative, baby banks across the UK will be able to support even more families through this particularly challenging time.”
