Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was greeted by dozens of schoolchildren waving paper flags as she arrived to open the new building at Framingham Earl, in Norfolk. She wore a beautiful purple dress with basques for the event where she was to unveil a plague for the official opening of the foundation's new center, The Nook, on Friday afternoon. Kate, the association's patron since 2012, has shown her maternal side by stopping to talk to the kids and their families who will use the new facilities and have even revealed Princess Charlotte's favorite hairstyle while chatting frankly with one of the young people. girls.
Rebecca English of the Daily Mail, who is attending the event, said that Kate had complimented one of the girls for her hairstyle.
She said, "I love your braids. My little girl, Charlotte, loves mats, but her hair is only very long, so we have to do it upstairs. "
Four-year-old Princess Charlotte is the second oldest of Kate and Prince William. Prince George, six, is the eldest and Prince Louis, one, the youngest.
The Duchess continued to show her maternal side when she met Stanley Harrold outside the hospice. He is three years old and suffers from a rare chromosomal disorder, Pallister-Killian syndrome.
She needs to meet more children and families supported by the East Anglia Children's Palliative Care Center (EACH) while she embarks on a hospice visit.
Kate helped launch the five-year, £ 10 million Nook Appeal to raise funds for a new state-of-the-art hospice for children to replace their old facility in Quidenham.
She attended the launch of The Nook's Call in November 2014 and Friday's visit will be exactly two years from the first "grass cut" on the site.
The new construction includes a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and family accommodation with private bathroom.
The charity provides care and support to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families throughout Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
Their care service includes specialized nursing care, symptom management nursing, short breaks, wellness activities, therapies, counseling and volunteer services at the family home; all responding to the individual needs of the child, the teenager and the whole family.
Kate will meet with children, youth and families involved in arts and crafts activities during her visit before delivering a short speech to the guests.
It's not the first time that Kate is wearing the gorgeous purple dress priced at £ 2,736, after wearing it at a health conference, in 2017, and then again in January when she visited the costumes department of the Royal Opera House.
For Friday's visit, she paired the dress with £ 520 Gianvito Rossi heels and a black Aspinal clutch.
Speaking of the opening of the new site, a spokesman for EACH said HELLO! magazine: "The Nook is a 21st century building destined to provide 21st century care, spread over one floor, with more spaces reserved for clinical care, larger and better equipped en suite rooms." , specialized therapy rooms and much more.
"This will allow us to fully meet the growing demand for our services and the ever-changing and more complex needs of those we support.
"Located on a five-acre woodlot, closer to the county center, hospitals and road networks, it also means that the majority of families and staff will travel shorter distances to receive and provide care."
