The Duchess has made her first ever video message for the upcoming Children’s Hospice Week. The video message, recorded at Clarence House, the official residence of the Prince of Wales and former residence of Prince William, the Duchess produced a very clear and well-delivered message.

The Duchess of Cambridge said, “I have been fortunate to see at first hand the remarkable work that they do for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families,” she says “It is simply transformational.”

She adds that hospices provide “invaluable and life- enhancing care” to families.


“Children’s Hospice Week is a time to recognise, celebrate and support the inspirational work of those hospices, and those who provide palliative care to these children and families. Children’s hospices provide lifelines to families at a time of unimaginable pain. The support they give is vital.

“In order to carry out this wonderful work, our help is needed. With our support, those providing children’s palliative care can continue to offer these extraordinary services. It does not bear thinking about what these families would do without this.”

She adds: “With your support, we can help ensure that these children and their families can make the most of the precious time they have together.”
