Today, Wills and Kate (and a bunch of other people, including Boris Johnson) went to Westminster Abby for the UK Holocaust Memorial Day Commemorative Ceremony, where Wills did a reading (about his great-grandmother, Princess Alice), and then they attended a reception with survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides.

Over the weekend, Kensington Palace also released the following:

As part of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust, The Duchess of Cambridge has taken photographs of two Holocaust survivors with their grandchildren. The first photograph features Steven Frank with his granddaughters, Maggie and Trixie. Alongside his mother and brothers, Steven was sent to Westerbork transit camp then to Theresienstadt. Steven and his brothers were 3 of only 93 children who survived the camp – 15,000 children were sent there. The Duchess also photographed Yvonne Bernstein with her granddaughter Chloe. Yvonne was a hidden child in France, travelling in the care of her aunt and uncle and frequently changing homes and names. The Duchess said: “I wanted to make the portraits deeply personal to Yvonne and Steven – a celebration of family and the life that they have built since they both arrived in Britain in the 1940s. The families brought items of personal significance with them which are included in the photographs. It was a true honour to have been asked to participate in this project and I hope in some way Yvonne and Steven’s memories will be kept alive as they pass the baton to the next generation.” The portraits will form part of a new exhibition opening later this year by @holocaustmemorialdaytrust, Jewish News and @royalphotographicsociety , which will feature 75 images of survivors and their family members. The exhibition will honour the victims of the Holocaust and celebrate the full lives that survivors have built in the UK, whilst inspiring people to consider their own responsibility to remember and share the stories of those who endured Nazi persecution.

As well as:

Kate and Yvonne Bernstein look like they really hit it off — they also were super chatty at today’s event, as you’ll see in the slideshow.

Jewish News also ran an article about this project, and the logistics of those portraits. I think they’re quite good. Kate has clearly been working on her portraiture. This seems like it’s going to be a very powerful exhibit; just those small tidbits about these people’s lives tear at the heart.

Kate’s dress is a re-wear — it’s Catherine Walker, and I’ve always liked it — and it seems, you know, appropriate for Holocaust remembrance event. She was not going to pop out wearing pleather leggings and a Spice Girls tee.
