As the coronavirus blockade in the UK continues to decline, more members of the British royal family are pulling away from Zoom to make commitments in person.
Duchess Kate quietly joined the families of the East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EVERYONE) to help plant a garden at The Nook, one of the charity-building hospices.
The Duchess of Cambridge traveled from Norfolk to Norwich on Thursday, June 25, to mark the end of Child Hospice Week to meet with EACH ONE care team and facility staff to thank them “for the incredible work they do”, according to a Kensington Palace Declaration.
And while there was a LOT of EVERY person waiting to help with the gardening, Kate came prepared, with plants she bought during her visit to the garden center last week. Taking the hour-long trip to the hospice with the duchess were lavender, laurel, and rosemary plants. “Sensory” plants continue the theme found in EVERY hospice sensory room, containing a variety of technology and products that can stimulate or relax the senses and help children who are unable to speak or communicate to develop their communication skills .
While the group was socially estranged, Kate worked alongside EVERY volunteer gardener, staff members and two families to “help create a space that is fun for children and families,” the spokesperson added. The garden also includes strawberry, geranium, and hydrangea plants to create a “calming” color scheme. The duchess also kept her promise to plant a sunflower in memory of Fraser Delf, whom the hospice cared for.
Kate’s visit marked the end of 2020 Children’s Hospice Week, organized by the British charity Together For Short Lives and aims to raise much-needed funds for the 54 UK children’s hospices.
“The care and nurturing they provide to children and families in the most unimaginable circumstances is simply inspiring,” the duchess wrote in a letter to mark the occasion. “I would also like to pay tribute to all those families who are caring for and caring for a child with a life-limiting illness. You guys do the most extraordinary job and I know it is particularly difficult right now, so my thoughts are with all of you “
EVERYONE, serving children with life-threatening conditions across the UK, is one of Kate’s first royal patrons. It’s a role she took on in 2012, and has led her to carry out a number of commitments to the organization, including the opening of The Nook last November.
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the organization has continued to provide end-of-life care, emergency care, and grief, both in person and virtually. “Spending time with these families and hearing how much support from EVERYONE means reminds me of how wonderful the organization is,” Kate said. “I am extremely proud to be their Patron.”
