These are all magical beyond words! If I picked faves from this selection, it would be the Countess- although Daniel and Catherine obviously have hearts of gold!
Thanks for sharing!
EDIT: After watching Kate Slideshow, - Pretty sure my heart has turned to goo!

Oh, that video was just too cute . I've never read that book, but from the bits that were read, it sounds very funny. I'd love for Her Highness to come and read to my class. She would have them all spellbound.

Over the past couple of days the BRF family have met adults and children that are amputees, seriously ill or dying. I remember that they have spoken (privately) with the parents of a child that had just died.

And its not just the BRF - all of the royals families get involved in these issues.

I am, and I'm embarassed to admit this, total rubbish around seriously sick people and I know that I would find this a very difficult thing to do. I looked at the pictures of the Queen talking to a resident at the hospice and was just in awe. It seems to me that you need to be incredibly resilient to do this job. There's a lot more to it than smiling, waving and receiving flowers/babygrow.

I love watching William and Catherine interact with children and members of the public. They have a natural gift for just making people around them comfortable and at ease. They strike me as very sensitive individuals, and I think that helps them go out there and do all the good that they do (and actually be genuinely interested in the work). The sincerity makes the pictures and videos even better, and I can never get enough of this couple in action.

I think it is brave of you to admit this - doing this type of work requires a special "touch", it is hard to explain, but we are all human and we all have our roles in life.

Royals- Hospice care

I wanted to add my views on this. I have volunteered with hospice before, my loved ones have been cared for by hospice, and I have certainly seen what wonderful work members of the BRF the other royal families, and a few other members of the public eye( celebs) have done for hospice. I say a few, because only in a few cases have I seen celebs with a true gift and heart for hospice care.( Robert Hardy, Donald Sinclair, AKA Siegfried Farnon) Most do it for the attention- to be seen doing good works.
It does take a certain gift to work in hospice- not everyone can do it- most of the time you don't know you have it till you do it. I didn't- and it takes a while to get comfortable with the idea that you have a gift- you take to it like a duck to water- it feels right, or it doesn't. Either way is OK- nothing to be ashamed of- it does take a while to get comfortable. I am still not sure I have a gift- I make sure to accept the compliment with grace though.
I see the gift for hospice in HM, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Countess of Wessex, and of course the late Princess of Wales, as well as the people above. They have my admiration.

This was beautifully put, and I agree with your sentiments. It takes a special person to work/volunteer in that type of setting, and for the people you've mentioned certainly have what it takes.
