Kate Middleton reportedly made “a big mess” by planting a beautiful garden at an end-of-life youth center during Children’s Hospice Week.
Working with UK charity Together for Short Lives, Middleton visited The Nook in Norfolk, one of the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EVERYONE) facility this week. The Duchess, who has been the royal patron saint of EVERYONE since 2012, came with lavender, laurel, and rosemary and hydrangeas to create “sensory plants” for children and their families.
“This week of Children’s Hospice, I would like to thank the amazing staff for all the work they do at Children’s Hospices across the UK,” said the Duchess in a recorded message during the June 22-28 celebration. “The care and attention they provide to children and families in the most unimaginable circumstances is simply inspiring.”
She added: “I would also like to pay tribute to all those families who care for and care 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. ”
Middleton’s husband Prince William spent this week visiting the Oxford Vaccine Group at the University of Oxford to learn about clinical trials in the fight against the coronavirus.
