Kate Middleton turns interviewer as she marks end of special campaign

The Duchess of Cambridge has been patron of Nursing Now campaign since 2018

The Duchess of Cambridge turned interviewer as she spoke to community Nurse Midwife, Harriet Nayiga, in a piece published on Wednesday for the Nursing Times

Kate interviewed Harriet in March about her work as a Nurse Midwife and as the Founder of MILCOT (Midwife-led Community Transformation), which is a community organisation providing advice and support for vulnerable women and girls in Nansana, Uganda.

The Duchess, wearing a cobalt blue blazer, asked Harriet about what inspired her to become a midwife, what her daily routine is like and how she and her organisation have coped during the pandemic.

Kate conducted the special interview in her role as patron of Nursing Now, a three year global campaign to raise the status and profile of nursing, which she launched at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital in February 2018, when she was pregnant with Prince Louis

It's a campaign close to her heart as the Duchess' great-grandmother and grandmother were both volunteer nurses.
