Kate Middleton wears headscarf to visit Muslim center
Kate Middleton is showing support for Turkey and Syria.
The Prince and Princess of Wales visited the Hayes Muslim Centre in London today to meet with fundraisers who have supported the countries after their recent devastating earthquakes.
The princess covered her head with a white headscarf featuring a black embroidered design by Pakistani brand Élan, which perfectly matched a look she wore during her 2019 tour of Pakistan.
She paired the wrap with the same classic black Catherine Walker coat and pleated Alexander McQueen dress she previously wore to meet members of the public after Queen Elizabeth II died last September.
For her visit to the Muslim center, Middleton carried a Grace Han top handle bag ($2,444) and wore black Gianvito Rossi heels ($704), keeping her makeup low-key.
The couple met with aid workers who have recently returned from the crisis zone along with representatives from the center who have supported earthquake relief efforts — with the group raising more than £25,000 (nearly $30,000) to help victims in Syria and Turkey.
They also took part in an origami-making event with the Turkish Women’s Association, creating paper cranes — which are symbols of healing and hope — in a video shared on Twitter by Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English.

Middleton has donned headscarves on a number of past occasions; she wore a light blue style to visit a mosque in Malaysia during a 2012 visit, and sported several colorful styles during her 2019 Pakistan tour.
Middleton paired a plain white scarf — known as a dupatta — with her embroidered Élan tunic while in Pakistan, but debuted the matching dupatta for today’s event for a fitting full-circle moment.
