The Duke and Duchess visited the Foundling Museum in London on January 19, 2022
The museum was founded as a home for children whose mothers couldn’t care for them or keep them. It “tells the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery” per the organization’s site.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Foundling Museum together to hear all about its work. “It’s lovely to be back at the @FoundlingMuseum and see how they’re continuing to help to transform the lives of young people, but also hear some of the difficulties that care leavers have faced over the years including during the pandemic,” they shared on their Instagram account. “We were able to understand first-hand the impact of spending time in care in the UK and it’s links with employment, housing, mental health, addiction and the youth justice system, ‘and some of the work that is being done to tackle these issues.’”
