Kate unveils plaque at new hospice with ‘army of little helpers’

The Duchess of Cambridge took the time to speak to many children and their families as she officially opened a new hospice which she praised as “wonderful”.

Kate, who is royal patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), visited the charity’s new hospice in Norfolk.

Speaking before she unveiled a plaque at The Nook in Framingham Earl, she said: “EACH was one of the very first charities that I decided to become patron of after my marriage.

“Whilst a lot has changed since then, my commitment and support for this wonderful organisation and the work that you do has not.”

As flashbulbs went off from the assembled media, one of them said: “Which camera should I look at?”

Kate laughed, before telling the group: “Well done”.
