There is a lot of passion in her letter and I'm sure her charities appreciate the work she do on their behalf.

As always, I'm looking forward to seeing Catherine out and about. I will say that she simply shines at these types of events because she's great with children, and because she has a heart of gold, and will make these children's and families' day.

I think she has a green glove puppet!

Lovely quote from the Hospice

"She took the time to speak to families, volunteers & staff to learn more about the impact of our work & the wider palliative care network."

"The Duchess is a committed supporter of children's hospices & showed great knowledge about our vital work supporting children...

...with life-limiting conditions & their families."

Kate revealed George has been introduced to "messy play" during her visit @SSChospices today (with thanks to @theroyaleditor)

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter 49m
A lovely and moving visit for Kate this afternoon. Look out for some very cute pictures of her with the children and a frog puppet.

Princess Charming! Kate brings early Christmas cheer to gravely sick children-
Kate Middleton Duchess of Cambridge uses frog puppet to bring Christmas cheer to sick kids | Royal | News | Daily Express

"The Duchess also met volunteers who help out at the hospice. She plans to launch a new initiative to encourage more people to volunteer in hospices.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: "The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry is currently developing a pilot for a volunteering programme to support families of children with life-limiting conditions.

"A key component of today's visit is for The Duchess to meet a group of Shooting Stars volunteers, to better understand how they support the hospice and its families."

The Duchess of Cambridge today comforted parents who lost their son, 5, on Oct 18 and their daughter,1, on Dec 3. Can't imagine their pain.

IIRC, messy play is an activity for young children, where they can play with things like paint and water etc.

She looks great! Good to see her upping royal engagements. She deserved her short "maternity leave" but she brings such great attention to so many different causes and helps make the monarchy relevant.

the little and the fist bump is lovely to see - she didnt want Catherine to leave. When you consider the issues the people herre, incl Catherine, are v special. I would find it so difficult to spend time with parents who had lost 2 young children. V moving

I really like what she's wearing. Her blazer is super smart and not the standard cut we see the most. The wash of her jeans is really nice and I don't even mind the shoes she's wearing.

She looks like she feels well and confident too. Which is a big factor into the way you look. (Example: Queen Máxima)

I agree: I would find it difficult to express compassion without becoming helplessly emotional, and I admire those who can "keep it together" while still obviously caring.
On another note - I was pleased to hear her refer to "Father Christmas" [as I do] rather than "Santa Claus" - much more British :)
