Kate Goes Tends to Royal Work on Her Wedding Anniversary
Kate Middleton spent the beginning of her two-year anniversary without Prince William at a children's hospice in Hampshire, England, yesterday. She dressed up her baby bump in a coral dress and a bright peach Tara Jarmon coat and greeted a crowd of fans. During her visit, Kate met with the patients at the Naomi House, a hospice for young children, and toured the centre's grounds. She also heard a performance from a family member whose brother passed away at the hospice in 2011. Kate's visit is co-ordinated as part of Children's Hospice Week, for which Kate made her first-ever video PSA. In Kate Middleton's PSA, she urges people to support hospices and praised the "remarkable work" that East Anglia's Children's Hospices do for sick children and their families. Kate has long been a supporter of the work that children's hospices do, and became a royal patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices in January 2012.
While yesterday marked Will and Kate's anniversary, her husband did not join her for her royal visit to the hospice. However, the Will and Kate did celebrate privately by reportedly exchanging paper gifts, as the two-year anniversary is traditionally considered the "paper" anniversary. The two also allegedly went out for a romantic dinner in London on Friday night.
