Expectations were high as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed off on their recent official tour of the Caribbean.

The Duchess of Cambridge and the Princess Royal combined their efforts to visit two maternal healthcare organisations in London: the Royal College of Midwives, and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. The highly popular royal ladies were dubbed the new ‘dream team’ – both Anne and Kate are known for their dedication and professionalism in their work as patrons. For the visit TRH heard about the ways in which the organisations are working together to improve maternal health care and met representatives from Tommy’s National Centre for Maternity Improvement.
