On May 22nd, the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH) and the Together for Short Lives charity released a video message from Kate to mark the start of Children’s Hospice Week 2017. You can watch the video below:
Kate filmed the video in January this year, during a visit to EACH Quidenham in Norfolk.
As you may recall, Kate is the Royal Patron of EACH. She has made a number of visits to the charity’s hospices over the last few years. (Related: Kate attends EACH Nook Appeal launch).
In the newly released video, Kate praised the support and care that children’s hospices provide: to families:
Today as we mark the beginning of Children’s Hospice Week – I hope you will join me in shining a light on the dedicated and inspirational staff and volunteers, and the lifeline services they provide for children and their families. The work they do is extraordinary, and it really does make a world of difference.
As outlined in our post about Kate’s visit to EACH Quidenham, her emerald green skirt suit is from Hobbs London. It’s from a past season.
The Hobbs London Sinead jacket sold for £109 at John Lewis, where it was described it as a “sleek, collarless style with a subtle peplum bodice detailing to the back to define the figure.” The jacket features an exposed front zip and decorative flap pockets.
The matching skirt sold for £65 at Hobbs London. It features clean lines and a slit detail on the reverse.
Both items were crafted from an Italian wool-blend fabric. Here’s a closer look at the texture:
Kate wore a silk shirt underneath the skirt suit. It features distinctive embroidery in a contrasting colour. It’s the Josephine blouse by Gerard Darel.
I love this look. Emerald green, says business is being taken care of.
