The Duchess of Cambridge has broken her silence since giving birth to Prince Louis, writing a letter to encourage people to acknowledge Children’s Hospice Week. In her role as Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Kate Middleton explained how important the services children’s hospices provide.
“I’m celebrating the remarkable and life-changing support provided by children’s hospices and palliative care charities across the U.K. They offer children and families facing the unimaginable a lifeline,” she wrote.
‘Life is short’ is the theme of this year’s Children’s Hospice Week. “I am touched that children and young people are sharing what they love most in life and reminding us how precious time’s for everyone,” Kate continued, before talking about her own experience as a mother.
“By supporting Children’s Hospice Week we can help spread joy and positivity across the U.K., encouraging everybody to make the most of moments that matter. Spending quality time together’s such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it’s the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish.”
The Duchess finished by saying: “Together we can champion the vital role that children’s hospices play in helping seriously ill children and families to have more precious moments.”
