Kate Middleton Lends Support To Children’s Hospice Week

Kate Middleton

Just one day after she celebrated her sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding, Kensington Palace released a charity video for Children’s Hospice Week which stars Kate.

The video message was  recorded during one of Kate’s visits to meet children and families at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) at Quidenham, England, in January. (Kate is a Royal Patron of EACH.)

In the message, mom-of-two Kate highlights the pediatric palliative care and hospice services that exist for the U.K.’s 49,000 children and young people with life-limiting conditions.

“For any parent, being told that your child may have a life-limiting condition, or may die young, will be one of the most difficult and isolating experiences you can face,” she says. “Having someone to help you come to terms with this news, and the professional support and care that comes with this, can make an enormous difference. It can help families make the most of every precious moment they have together.”
