Kate Middleton visiting HMP High Down
Ahead of the so-called Addiction Awareness Week, Kate Middleton visited HMP High Down prison in Surrey, England, to learn all about the efforts made by the organization The Forward Trust, which she leads, regarding prisoners.
The organization led by the Princess of Wales helps prison inmates, in this case only men, to get rid of their addictions.
Even though she is a princess, Kate Middleton did not receive special treatment, but went through all the security procedures that must be followed by visitors, before they are allowed to enter the institution. HMP High Down is a Category C prison.
Category C prisons are for low-profile inmates, described as those who cannot be trusted in open conditions but are unlikely to try to escape, according to information on specialist websites.
How the Princess of Wales got injured
During a visit to HMP High Down prison in Surrey, Kate Middleton revealed that she suffered a hand injury from the trampoline at her home in Windsor. The Princess of Wales explained, through a Kensington Palace spokesman, that it was nothing serious.
“A small wound, nothing serious,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said.
Prisoners at HMP High Down work with representatives from The Forward Trust to support them with their addiction needs. The Bridge program helps men to give up alcohol or drug use, of varying intensities.
Through the organization led by Kate Middleton, prisoners are also helped to engage in courses based on restoring healthy communication and trust between loved ones.
Before leaving HMP High Down prison, the life partner of the heir to the British throne visited The Clink, an on-site restaurant that trains inmates in hospitality. Here he met former prisoners and graduates of The Forward Trust.
