The Duchess of Sussex arrives at Brinsworth House in Twickenham to visit residents supported by the Royal Variety Charity. She looks fab in a coat by SOIA & KYO and a dress by Brock Collection. The mom-to-be had her hair up in her now signature bun.
The place has been a retirement home for entertainment industry workers since 1911. The Royal Variety Charity, of which the Queen is a patron, assists those who have worked professionally in the entertainment industry and are in need of help and assistance as a result of old age, ill-health, or hard times.
Many of those who work in the entertainment industry can often work season to season, spending long periods with no work at all, and with little ability to make any plans for their futures, or to provide themselves with security should they have an accident or fall ill. Money raised by the Royal Variety Charity, and through the annual Royal Variety Performance, helps and supports hundreds of retired entertainers throughout the UK.
Meghan and Harry attended this year’s Royal Variety Performance, which raises money for the charity. The RVC also gives nationwide grants to retired entertainers who have fallen on hard times through illness and old age.
