  • Royal fans have praised the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, for proving she is just like one of us after she was spotted using public transport last week.

    The Duchess travelled to Norfolk on Friday without her husband Prince William in order to open The Nook children’s hospice for the East Anglia Children’s Hospice Charity.

    While it was a day of royal duties for Duchess Catherine, she certainly showed her down to earth side as she travelled to Framingham for the special day.

    Instead of opting for a private ride, Kate was joined by her entourage as she hopped on a public train to make her way to the event.

    In a video shared on an Instagram fan page dedicated to the Duchess, she can be seen strutting through the train station, looking cool and collected.

    While seeming to go unnoticed by the crowds of unsuspecting fellow travellers around her, Kate stunned in a plum Oscar de la Renta coat with stylish peplum detail, sleek black heels and matching tights.

    Five years ago The Duchess of Cambridge launched @eachhospices’ Nook Appeal, which aimed to raise funds for a purpose-built children’s hospice near Norwich — today The Duchess officially opened The Nook in Framingham Earl! The new hospice contains more areas for clinical care and dedicated therapy rooms, allowing EACH to meet the increased demand for its service and the ever-changing and more complex needs of those it cares for. The Duchess attended the launch of The Nook appeal in November 2014, and visited the charity’s previous Norfolk hospice in Quidenham in January 2017, which served as a home-from-home for over 25 years. Speaking at today’s opening, The Duchess said: “You have created here at The Nook a nurturing, caring environment that allows families who are going through the unimaginable the ability to spend precious quality time with each other, comforted in the knowledge that their children are being looked after in the best possible way. EACH was one of the very first charities that I decided to become Patron of after my marriage. Whilst a lot has changed since then, my commitment and support for this wonderful organisation and the work that you do has not”. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk and supports their families. Their care service includes specialist nursing care, symptom management nursing, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies, counselling and volunteer services in the family home; all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family 📷 Kensington Palace
