Kate echoes Princess Diana by supporting 'taboo' causes, says royal expert

Kate Middleton has been showing her support for raising awareness of addiction, and one royal expert says this mirrors Princess Diana's work of highlighting 'under the radar' causes

Last week, Kate attended the launch of the Taking Action on Addiction campaign for The Forward Trust, where she gave a keynote speech.In it, she called for compassion and empathy for those who are struggling with addiction and warned that anybody could become an addict.

She also chatted to TV presenters Ant and Dec, with Ant McPartlin opening up to Kate and telling her how his problems with alcohol and drug addiction were able to “disappear” after he opened up on his struggles to close friends. And now the Sunday Times royal editor Roya Nikkhah says Kate's decision to raise awareness about addiction is similar to the campaigns that Princess Diana highlighted.

She told True Royalty TV's The Royal Beat : "Kate is very, very keen to raise awareness about things that are still quite taboo, and it echoes Diana, very early in the days of her royal career, getting behind causes like homelessness or HIV and AIDS that senior members of the Royal Family just weren't going for. headtopics.com

"I think addiction is still one of those issues that is perhaps slightly under the radar in terms of people being honest and talking about it." Love the royals?

During her speech, Kate said: "Addiction is not a choice. No one chooses to become an addict. But it can happen to any one of us. None of us are immune."Yet it’s all too rarely discussed as a serious mental health condition. And seldom do we take the time to uncover and fully understand its fundamental root causes.

"The journey towards addiction is often multi-layered and complex. But, by recognising what lies beneath addiction, we can help remove the taboo and shame that sadly surrounds it."As a society, we need to start from a position of compassion and empathy. Where we nurture those around us, understand their journey, and what has come before them."

Meanwhile, it has been suggested that Kate and husband Prince William could make a "high profile" visit to the US next year after their popularity there "took a bit of a nosedive".William and Kate haven't visited America since 2014 when they travelled to New York for a series of engagements. headtopics.com

Last Sunday night, during the Earthshot Prize awards, it was announced by William that the US would be hosting the ceremony next year.And a source says a visit to the US by the couple is "very much on the cards". They told Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl: "Team Cambridge is very focused on America and making sure they have a high profile over there.

"The possibility of them making a high profile visit is very much on the cards for next year."They are aware that their popularity took a bit of a dive post the Oprah interview, and that focus now is on getting that support back. America is a very important audience for them."
