Quote:
A children's hospice has seen a surge in its profile since the Duchess of Cambridge became its Royal patron a year ago.
The Treehouse in Ipswich is run by East Anglia's Children's Hospices, or EACH - one of four charities chosen by Kate to receive special support. "Kate's got that credibility. She's very newsworthy, so people recognise her. They trust her. They like her.
"She's got that real warmth about her in the way that Diana had and she is also able to champion of some of those unpopular causes like we saw with Diana, putting things like Aids and landmines on the map."

Quote:
"EACH is invaluable to hundreds of families. In the past year there has been an unprecedented amount of care and support delivered to children and young people with life-threatening illnesses, and their families," the mom-to-be says in a statement on the auction's page online.
"I have been fortunate enough to meet some of those who have been supported by EACH, and seen firsthand the positive impact this organization has on their lives," she continues. "For both families accessing care, and those who have been bereaved, EACH is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time."

She probably saw that there would be a LOT of interest in all things baby once her pregnancy was announced and like the smart cookie she is, figured out a good way to help others benefit from it also. I really admire her for that.

This woman's kindness and selflessness never fail to amaze me.

I had to look up "hamper" because I was not sure, and I can´t believe it. Almost seems like a joke.

You are correct. I don't get the joke either, but it's some kind of dig.

So I guess she gave in fact a basket full of baby related gifts to a charity to be auctioned off for the benefit of said charity. So again, what's the joke?

Here in the US (at least in the southern part of the US), the usual connotation of the word "hamper" is as a receptacle for soiled laundry. In that regard, I don't know that a hamper of baby gifts would be well received.

We use the same term in California. So I get the joke.

I'm sure you will need a laundry hamper with a new baby. If it is filled with useful, needed item, I think it would be a beautiful gift.

She chaired the meeting rather than just attending it. That takes skill. A chair has to encourage people to give their input and also diplomatically discourage those who speak too much.

Didn't realize she had taken on a children's palliative care charity. Though her appearance will be item #1 covered, these difficult subjects will be given some daylight because of her.
