Over the years, we have either seen the Duchess of Cambridge make a visit to a Children’s Hospice to mark Children’s Hospice Week, release a video statement, or most frequently she has released a letter voicing her support.
This time, when the letter from the Duchess of Cambridge was not the first item of the week to be released I was a bit puzzled, but hopeful that it meant a video statement might be in the plans.
I knew a physical visit could not be in the offing so I sat in hope.
and then my friend Victoria Howard at The Crown Chronicles tagged me in a tweet about her latest post. I opened it and squealed with delight.
It seems that the Duchess of Cambridge has teamed up with the Duchess of Cornwall, and together they have held a zoom chat with the executives of two of the children’s hospices that Camilla is Royal Patron of Children’s Hospice Southwest and Helen and Douglas House, as well as a family being served by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH) of which the Duchess of Cambridge is Royal Patron.
Camilla even talks at the start about how she was feeling heading into her first visit to a Children’s Hospice.
Please take the time and watch the entire video below.
