Kate steps out in emerald green Hobbs ensemble on hospice visit

The Duchess of Cambridge was a vision in green for an official engagement in Norwich on Tuesday morning (Jan. 24). The mother of two looked smart and sophisticated in the two-piece emerald green Sinead skirt suit from Hobbs, one of her favourite high street stores.

The 35-year-old accessorised her ensemble with black court shoes and a matching clutch bag, and wore her hair in a bouncy blowout.

The Duchess was paying a visit to one of the East Anglia's Children's Hospices facilities in Quidenham, Norwich. Kate, who is royal patron of the charity, met terminally ill children and their families during her visit to the hospice.

During the engagement, Kate was given a tour of the facilities. She met families and sat in on an art therapy session, where children and their parents used the equipment in the sensory room.

Kate was also introduced to some of the staff and volunteers, who updated the royal on their plans for a new site. Since its opening in 1991, the increasing number of children who visit Quidenham means the hospice has outgrown its current site.

A new purpose-built hospice The Nook is being built to help support families in the area. Kate helped launch the $20 million (£10 million) Nook Appeal in 2014, and she was no doubt interested to hear about their fundraising progress.

EACH at Quidenham supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions from across Norfolk. Their family centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, wellbeing activities, and therapy and counselling – all meeting the individual needs of the child or young person, and the whole family.
