Seems odd but i think she looks 1000 times better than last night. She's so pretty "au naturel".

That little girl hugging Kate in the video was a real scene stealer; what a charmer! Thanks for posting, Dman.

The videos are very nice and heartwarming. Those who have met her have said Catherine is a very nice, caring person who enjoy working with her charities. The kids really take to her and she has grown very confident in her royal duties.

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."

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.

"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.
Shooting Star got a visit from another star today- Not in the celebrity sense star, no a star whose magic light of love shines brightly on every life she touches.

That was precious. I happen to have a little girl in my class with a very similar personality. It melts my heart to see kids show so much love. Catherine has a gift; plain, and simple. She brings sunshine wherever she goes.

Catherine has always been good with kids. Always lovely the way they react to her, especially the ones she visits in hospices, they just light up when she is around.

I have to say motherhood as been good for her confidence. She seems more sure of herself & her interactions are less guided, which is lovely to see

Cant wait to learn more about this volunteering programme for children's hospices.
Catherine clearly feels strongly for Children's hospice.

Enjoyed the video - not only does she have a lovely, easy way with children, she manages to maintain her focus on them despite the cameras constantly clicking away. She has learned in a very short time the skills which some Royals never truly master.

I agree, excellent post. Becoming a parent reframes the meaning of your life. There is larger purpose you take on.

I agree, I can see a change in both William & Catherine now they've become parents themselves. Must be very special for the kids to meet a real princess.

Totally agree. She has really grown in her role. I'm interested to see what next year holds.

That volunteering program sounds really interesting. Can't wait to hear more about it.

You're certainly correct here. Catherine made the kids'/families' day, I'm sure. I'm a bit envious of her skills with kids. She's at such ease with them. I love kids, but it takes me a while to lose my fear of being thought of as 'strange', and lose my inhibitions.

Excellent post! I couldn't agree more.

The Duchess of Cambridge sang songs and played with a frog puppet at a children's hospice today.
She smiled broadly as she joined in with nursery rhymes and Christmas carols with youngsters with life-limiting conditions at Shooting Star House in Hampton, Middlesex.
The young mother played along and chatted to boys and girls with serious illnesses, and at one point shared a group hug with three young girls who gave her a posy of pink roses.

You're welcome. I agree with you, and it's good to see Catherine taking part in more engagements now. I enjoyed looking at the photos/watching the videos of her visit to the children's hospice.

Lovely photos. Interesting- could not read a word, but did not need to. Photos said it all.

I really don't think she was very effusive I had caught the child in my lap rigth away, maybe she could't....I don't kow...but to me she was not natural and she didn't gave that child the attention she wants...
