The Duchess of Cambridge visited Evelina Children’s Hospital with Prince William.
Kate Middleton was just named Patron of the London children’s hospital. The Duchess paid a visit to the hospital yesterday where she fully immersed herself in activities with the children and made a great impact.
Evelina London cares for children and young people from before birth, throughout childhood and into adult life. The specialist NHS hospital is the second largest provider of children’s services in London. It prides itself in being a “hospital that doesn’t feel like a hospital” and has themed floors, a conservatory, rooms with views, sunlight and fresh air.
In a speech the Duchess made on the day, she said it was “such a pleasure” to meet with patients and their families and praised the staff at the hospital for providing outstanding care.
