Kate Middleton and Prince William Celebrated Inspiring Women on International Women's Day

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to their official Instagram page to pay tribute to special women and celebrate International Women's Day.

On Sunday, March 8, William and Kate marked the International Women's Day by paying tribute to inspiring women all over the world.

In the first picture, the royals captured their visit to an SOS children's village in Lahore, Pakistan, in 2019 while praising the efforts of the women in caring for the children. The second photo was of Eilen Fenton, who received an MBE from Prince William last year.

The third image was of Kate visiting staff at Kingston's Hospital maternity unity, while the fourth picture was of Holocaust survivor, Yvonne Bernstein, and her granddaughter Chloe.

Many of the fans of the Royal couple commented on the post with one writing:

"Cheers to all these incredible women! May they continue to inspire many people through their work and experiences!"

Today is #InternationalWomensDay! To mark the day we are celebrating some of the remarkable and inspiring women we have met over the last year. Clockwise from top left: 1. The women of the SOS Children’s Village in Lahore, Pakistan: where staff provide children, deprived of their natural parents, with an environment which is as close as possible to a natural home, along with loving care, security, higher education and job-training. 2. Eileen Fenton MBE: Eileen was the first woman, at the age of 21, to complete the Cross Channel Swimming Race in 1950, and went on to train scores of first-class long distance and sprint swimmers. 3. The incredible staff at Kingston Hospital’s Maternity Unit: their philosophy of care is to ensure women are at the centre of their service. 4. Yvonne Bernstein: Yvonne was a hidden child in France, travelling in the care of her aunt and uncle and frequently changing homes and names — The Duchess photographed Yvonne Bernstein with her granddaughter Chloe earlier this year as part of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust. #IWD2020 #IWD

Other Royals joined the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in recognizing and honoring different women for their accomplishments.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were not left out, as they cast a light on domestic violence survivors around the world.

The Princess explained how the Queen taught her so much just by being an excellent example.

Today on #InternationalWomenDay2020, we are shining a light on survivors of domestic abuse around the world. The Duchess of Cornwall has been raising awareness about the issue of domestic violence for over ten years and has visited many domestic violence refuges in the UK and overseas. At a reception to mark the 15th anniversary of @safelives_ last month, HRH said: “With each story that is told, the taboo around domestic abuse weakens and the silence that surrounds it is broken, so other sufferers can know that there is hope for them and they are not alone.” During a visit to the Battered Women’s Trust in New Zealand last year, HRH was presented with a refuge diamond pin, which is given to people who have provided service to the movement for many years. #IWD2020 📸 Clarence House /PA

Their message comes just days after Camilla delivered a keynote address at the Women of the World Festival at the Southbank Centre in London.

Also, Princess Eugenie joined the other Royals in praising women who had inspired her, making special mention to her mother Sarah Ferguson and sister Princess Beatrice. Taking to her Instagram stories, she said

"Today and every day, I celebrate women. On International Women's Day 2020, I wanted to share with you some of the women that have and do inspire me."

I was lucky enough to go to @mogowildlifepark in 2009 whilst visiting my Aunt in Australia. It was such an incredible experience to be with the animals and meet such a dedicated team of people supporting these magnificent creatures. Mogo Wildlife Park reopened this past weekend after the devastating bushfires threatened the park and lives of the keepers and animals. Chad Staples, the zoo’s director, received a text "leave now to the east towards the beach and shelter in place", but he and his team chose instead to stay and fight the fire to save the park. I'm in awe of how human determination and drive can overcome such terrifying circumstances and I wanted to share this story of hope after what Australia has been through. All my thoughts have been and are with all those who are affected by the fires in Australia. @mogowildlifepark @zookeeper_chad

Driving closer to home, the Princess reserved special praise for her "beautiful Mumma," who she described as a constant inspiration and helped her know what it is to feel empowered as a woman.

Princess Eugenie also appreciated the influence of her big sister Beatrice since she was born describing it as "inspirational."

Alok Mitra, who founded the Women Interlink Foundation in 1990, also got a mention, but Eugenie couldn't finish off her long tribute without appreciating her grandmother, the Queen.

In a heartfelt message, the Princess explained how the Queen taught her so much just by being an excellent example to her and so many women around the world.
