Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, was greeted by dozens of school children waving paper flags when she arrived to open the new building in Framingham Earl, Norfolk. She was wearing a stunning purple dress with peplum details for the event where she must present a curse to officially open the charity's new center, The Nook, on Friday afternoon. Kate, who has been a patron of the charity since 2012, showed her motherly side by stopping to talk to children and their families who will use the new facility and even revealed Princess Charlotte's favorite hairstyle while talking to one of the young people. girls
Rebecca English of the Daily Mail at the event said Kate praised one of the girls for her hairstyle.
She said, “I love your braids. My little girl Charlotte loves braids, but her hair is just that long, so we have to do them on top. "
Princess Charlotte, four, is the second eldest son of Kate and Prince William, with Prince George six, the oldest and Prince Louis the first, the youngest.
The duchess continued to show her maternal side when she met Stanley Harrold outside the hospice, he is three years old and has a rare chromosomal disorder, Pallister-Killian syndrome.
She is prepared to meet more children and families supported by Children & Hospices of East Anglia (EACH) by visiting the hospice.
Kate helped launch the £ 10 million Nook Appeal five years ago to raise funds for a new state-of-the-art children's hospice to replace her old Quidenham facility.
She attended the launch of The Nook feature in November 2014 and Friday's visit will be exactly two years since the first "mowing" at the venue.
The new building features a hydrotherapy pool, a sensory room and family accommodation with a private bathroom.
The charity provides assistance and support to children with serious illness and their families in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
Their care services include specialist nursing care, symptom management nursing, short breaks, wellness activities, therapies, counseling, and volunteer family home services; all meeting the individual needs of the child, youth and entire family.
Kate will meet children, youth, and families who participate in craft activities during her visit before giving a brief speech to the guests.
This is not the first time Kate has worn the impressive purple dress, costing £ 2,736, having worn it earlier at a 2017 Health Writers conference and then again in January when she visited the costume department of the Royal Opera House.
For Friday's visit, she combined the 520-pound Gianvito Rossi heel dress and a black Aspinal clutch bag.
Speaking of the opening of the new website, an EACH spokesman said HI! magazine: “Nook is a 21st century building to offer 21st century, single-storey care, with more clinical care areas, larger, better-equipped bathrooms, dedicated therapy rooms, and 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 care for.
"Set in five acres of forest, closer to the county center, hospitals and road networks, it also means that most families and staff will travel shorter distances to receive and provide assistance."
