Kate Middleton Embraces Barbiecore (Again!) Visiting The Foundling Museum

Pretty (princess) in pink!

Barbiecore just got a royal seal of approval: hot off her visit to Chelsea Flower Show earlier this week, Kate Middleton was spotted at The Foundling Museum this afternoon (25 May) sporting a pastel pink pantsuit.

Kate Middleton Embraces Barbiecore Visiting The Foundling Museum

Earlier this week, the Princess of Wales visited Chelsea Flower Show sporting a pretty pink dress from British luxury label ME+EM, along with a pair of summery espadrille wedges from Castañer and Catherine Zoraida earrings. Today, she’s taken her love of pink one step further, donning a pastel pink three-piece Alexander McQueen pantsuit, a statement white Camilla Elphick belt with pearl detailing, and white pointed toe pumps.

The Princess was photographed inside and outside The Foundling Museum on Brunswick Square, of which she has been a patron since 2019. The Museum chronicles the history of the Foundling Hospital – the UK’s first children’s charity – which cared for abandoned children in the 18th century. Kate visited to see its ‘Finding Family’ exhibition, which displays the creative work of people who have lived in the care system; the Museum offers mentoring programmes as well as therapeutic art and writing classes to support young people who have been (or are in) the care system. The visit adds to Kate’s recent work highlighting early childhood development. 

During her visit, the Princess was joined by Professor Green to talk to the creatives about how creative writing helps them express their emotions and experiences, as well as with adoptive and foster parents about the positive impact of nurturing and being nurtured. She also spoke about the importance of having loving relationships as children. 

‘Every day @FoundlingMuseum’s ground-breaking work supports care-experienced young people to fundamentally change the future direction of their lives,’ Kate wrote on Twitter. ‘All the support and care we can offer those who have faced real difficulties early in life has such a positive impact on #ShapingUs’.

Kate later visited a peer support group led by Kinship, a charity partnering carers with people in need of care, supporting both. While there, she heard about the experiences of raising the child of a relative or friend after they could no longer live with their parents from kinship families.

Naturally, we can’t help but think of Barbiecore – the hot pink trend taking over the fashion, interiors and even the travel world – especially after Margot Robbie’s iconic Vogue cover promoting Greta Gerwig’s Barbie made headlines this morning.
