Kate Middleton has been a patron of EVERY organization (she supports children’s hospices) since 2012. To mark Children’s Hospice Week, the Duchess of Cambridge visited little patients and their parents at the Nook Hospice in Norwich and planted flowers and plants in the garden with them.
For a public appearance, Kate chose a summer tea dress with a floral print from Faithfull the Brand, espadrilles on a wedge from Russell & Bromley, as well as earrings from Accessorize.
By the way, Kate brought seedlings with her – herself picked them out at the Fakenham Garden Center last week. Some of the plants she bought include lavender, bay leaf and rosemary.
Hospice plants are also used in the so-called “sensory rooms” – they help children who cannot speak or communicate to develop their communication skills.
Middleton visited the organization on Thursday, June 25, but the visit took place in a calm atmosphere and an official report on the subject did not appear on Instagram until today.
Staff and volunteers at the hospice and during the coronavirus pandemic did not stop work, provided emergency assistance and support in the event of the death of a child. The Duchess thanked them for the incredible work they do.
The care and assistance you provide to children and families in the most unimaginable circumstances is simply awe inspiring. I would also like to pay tribute to all of these families who care for a child with a life-limiting illness. You are doing the hardest job, and I know it is particularly difficult for you now, so all my thoughts are with you right now,
– wrote Kate in a letter to employees and parents.
Kate also worked with the gardeners herself and spoke with two families. Strawberries, geraniums and hydrangeas were planted in the open area, and the Duchess also planted a sunflower in memory of Fraser Delf, who was a patient in the hospice.
The time spent with these families, the words spoken about the importance of EACH support for them, remind me of how wonderful this organization is. I am very proud to be her boss,
– said Kate at the event.
