The Princess in Familiar Pieces for Dadvengers Engagement – What Kate Wore

The Princess of Wales today wore a family style for a meeting of the dad avengersa group that “inspires and advocates for fathers throughout their journey to parenthood.”

The Telegraph has more in this piece by India McTaggart.

The Princess of Wales has visited a north London pub to talk about the importance of early childhood with a group of parents. The princess, 41, met with the Dadvengers community at the Arnos Arms in Arnos Grove, where they spoke about fathers’ wellbeing and building supportive communities around fathers.

The Dadvengers group was started by CBeebies presenter Nigel Clarke in 2019 to provide resources for new fathers and support positive men’s mental health, mainly online.

The organization has four fundamental pillars.

Dadvengers notes on its site that “addressing the issues dads face is not as simple as it seems. Men do not engage with resources in the same way as women. Therefore, we believe in tailoring our resources and making them attractive to our audience. We engage dads by building communities through recreational activities, such as our Podcast, Dad Chats, Quizzes, Meet-Ups or Dad Walks.” The group’s name is said to come from Mr. Clarke’s fondness for Marvel’s Avengers.

A press release from Kensington Palace notes: “Dadvengers is predominantly an online community working to support dads on their journey to fatherhood. It has a strong focus on mental wellbeing and supports new fathers in a variety of ways, including through online training programmes, podcasts and, most recently, in-person ‘Dad Walks’. “Dad Walks offer a new way for men to meet other dads in their local community in an informal setting.”

We learn more about Dadvengers in this daily mail piece.

Nigel Clarke, founder of Dadvengers, said: “Fathers have a huge role to play in their children’s lives, from the very beginning. Even before their baby is born, fathers can get involved and Dadvengers is on a mission to help them do it in a way that works for them.’

‘We provide them with information and advice to help them look after their own wellbeing, whilst supporting them to build the relationships and nurturing environments that we know are so important in the early years of their children’s lives. That’s what Dadvengers is about.’

As the royal joined the parents and their little ones around the table, she said: “I think it’s bringing up the importance of family time and the role that dads play in raising children. “Through what you are doing, children are seeing the importance of socializing and getting together.”

“It’s not just that mom will do X and dad will do Y,” one parent added, to which Kate agreed and said, “It’s shared.”

Today’s commitment was part of the Giving Us Shape Initiative.

After their meeting at the pub, the group took part in a dads’ walk.

While the children were playing on the playground, Kate was seen bending down to talk to a girl, who was wearing a floral raincoat and wellies.

“I love your striped stockings,” the princess said to the young man, “I should have worn my striped stockings.”

The princess posed for a group photo with Nigel Clarke and her family, including 11-month-old Cassius.

Speaking after the visit, Nigel said the parents were “shocked” to receive a visit from the princess. He continued: “They were surprised that she had taken the time to come visit a group like this. We discussed how important it is to have groups and spaces like this. “Dads worry about feeling uncomfortable, but in a space like this they relax and open up.”

And he added: “We discussed how difficult it is to reach parents and she asked how we had achieved it. I wish walks like this were done all over the country. The goal is to normalize dads spending time with their children.”

Kensington Palace released a video following today’s engagement.

Now let’s see what Kate wore to her visit to the Dadvengers. Many will have recognized his ‘Edith Jacket’ of 2020 barbour x Alexa Chung Collection. The jacket has an oversized silhouette and a distinctive gingham lining. It also features a corduroy collar, slightly short sleeves that hit just above the wrist bone, snap-close flap pockets, a covered zipper placket with snaps, and an angled front zipper pocket. It was first observed in an Early Years video from November 2020.
