Duchess of Cambridge Visits Women’s Prison

  September 25, 2015 at 8:37 am by

The Duchess of Cambridge this morning paid a visit to HM Prison Send in Surrey, where she met with inmates and ex-prisoners who have received aid from the Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust.

Dressed in an ivory and grey tweed dress from The Fold, Kate spent around two hours at the prison, hearing from ex-prisoners about how RAPt’s 12-step drug and alcohol program helped them to beat their addictions and live a life free of drugs and crime once they were released. She was also introduced to women currently serving sentences that are getting help in the prison’s Addictive Treatment Unit.

In a statement released afterwards, the Duchess said that the visit reminded her how “addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues” and of the “destructive role” substance abuse can have.

“I am grateful to the women I met for sharing their difficult personal stories with me. It is encouraging to learn how organisations like RAPt are offering specialist support to help people break the cycle of addiction and look forward to a positive and crime free life,” she said.

    So, in a statement released AFTER the meeting, come on now, people are not crazy, the statement was PREPARED by the PR firm and palace officials. This woman CANNOT think on her own OUTSIDE the box. She does as she is told, but this is the life she stalked William for.
