The royals have been busy as of late — the day before, they visited the Foundling Museum in the U.K., where they met representatives and learned more about the care sector.

"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," the message read via Instagram.
