Among all the galas and events the Duchess of Cambridge attends, sometimes Kate goes on a more lowkey secret engagement, and recently she did just that. The royal worked two days at the Kingston Hospital Maternity Unit in London, according to reports. Reportedly she has been visiting the unit privately throughout the year in connection with her Early Years work. The Duchess certainly proved herself to be a diligent and dedicated inter.
She has a natural affinity with children, something she has shown time and time again on her many official engagements, and being a mother of three also helps. We are sure the Duchess had no problem adapting to the busy maternity ward. All three of Kate’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were delivered at Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital, so the Duchess has seen first-hand how a maternity ward works.
Kate’s caring nature was nowhere as apparent as when she visited the Nook hospice in Norwich last month. While there she met with a number of ill children and their families, including four-year-old Rupert Wright, who has a rare, life-limiting multi-systematic disease commonly known as MPS2 or hunger syndrome.
His mother later spoke about their encounter with the caring royal. “I cried and I got a little hug and at the end when she walked out she gave me a little wave. Just simple things like that make you realise she’s a very special lady,” Naomi Wright said. “She is a mum herself and you get that sense that she does understand. She’s not doing it because she has to but because she wants to. This is something that means a lot to her.”
