Given how she asked for tea and pastries to be sent to well-wishers waiting outside the Lindo Wing ahead of her daughter’s birth, we’re not surprised to hear about generous Kate Middleton’s latest gesture.
With Princess Charlotte’s christening set to take place this coming Sunday, July 5, the Duchess has organised a way for the special event to benefit those who need a little brightness in their lives.
According to reports this week, the Duchess has asked that all flowers given to the Royal family by well-wishers are donated to a hospice charity.
All blooms and bouquets sent to mark the two-month-old’s special day will be gathered up and given to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and distributed among the hospices for families and staff members to enjoy.
EACH was a natural choice for the Duchess, given that she is a royal patron of the charity, and management are delighted with the touching gesture.
EACH Chief Executive, Graham Butland, released a statement regarding the news, saying that they are touched by the Duchess’ kindness.
“We are very honoured the flowers…are being donated to EACH. Her Royal Highness has shown great dedication to the role of Royal Patron, raising awareness and understanding of our services, and we’re incredibly grateful for all the support the charity has received,” he said.
Princess Charlotte’s christening will take place this coming Sunday, at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.
