Kate Middleton took time away from her more glamorous royal duties to visit inmates in a drug rehabilitation program last week. 

The Duchess of Cambridge spent much of her time at a prison just outside London speaking to women in the Rehabilitation for Addicted Persons trust (RAPt). RAPt, a six-month long, 12-step program, is the only one dedicated to women in the United Kingdom.

"I was reminded today how addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues and how substance misuse can play such a destructive role in vulnerable people's lives," Kate said in a statement.  

One such person is Isha, a 33-year-old graduate of the program who shared her story with the princess. 

"If there had been support like this on the outside, it'd be so much easier and better for people to have a chance outside," Isha said.
