The Duchess of Cambridge has penned a heartfelt letter in support of one of her charities, the East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH), of which she became a patron in 2012.

The letter highlights the importance of families spending quality time together, with the royal mother of two emphasising that “for those caring for children with life limiting conditions, even this simple act can prove to be incredibly challenging.”

She went on to praise children’s hospices and palliative care charities in the UK, describing the work they do as a “lifeline” for families: “This support gives these families the space they need to simply spend time together, which is so important in the most difficult times imaginable.”

She ended the letter by drawing attention to Children’s Hospice Week, which runs from 23 to 29 May, adding “we need to help these families treasure their precious time together.” Read the letter in full here.
