Kate Middleton and Prince William are working together to learn about the work people have done after the shocking earthquake hit parts of Syria and Turkey on Monday, February 6. The tragic event resulted in a death toll of 47,000, and the Associated Press has classified it as "the disaster of the century."
To pay their respects, the Prince and Princess of Wales visited the Hayes Muslim Centre. During the outing, the duo expressed their gratitude for the community organizers who raised $29,000 for the cause.
Upon entering the building, the Duchess of Cornwall wore a head scarf from the Pakistani brand Élan. The mother-of-three previously used the covering during her 2019 tour of Pakistan.
Since the force majeure happened last month, the spouses have been vocal about their support of the U.K. Disasters Emergency Committee's (DEC) Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal.
On Thursday, February 9, the couple tweeted, "We have been horrified to see the harrowing images coming out of Turkey and Syria in the aftermath of the earthquakes this week. Our thoughts are with the communities affected and we are pleased to support the @decappeal campaign which will aid the response on the ground. W & C."
The duo's recent outing follows the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle being evicted from Frogmore Cottage. As The Royal Observer reported, sources close to William and Kate have previously shared that they'll continue to carry out their responsibilities despite the family drama.
"So much has been said that at this stage, I think they just want to move on," a friend spilled to a news outlet after the release of Spare. "The whole situation is very sad, but it's business as usual."
"So much has been said that at this stage," an insider revealed. "I think they just want to move on. The whole situation is very sad, but it's business as usual, and she's getting on with the job because that's what she does."
"She is a tough woman. It is wonderful that William has Kate by his side to rely on, as she is a real stalwart through this," the source added.
