It was another big moment for the Duchess of Cambridge – handled with grace and charm.
Kate and her husband, Prince William, arrived in Malaysia on Thursday, where she gave her first public speech outside Britain, thanking the staff of Hospis Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur for their warm welcome and their transformative effect on the children in their care.
"I have learned that delivering the best possible palliative care to children is vital, providing children and their families with a place of support, care and enhancement at a time of great need is simply life-changing," , Middleton said in her two-minute address
"With effective pallative care, life can be transformed," she added.
During her visit to Hospis Malaysia Thursday, Kate also met with Zakwan Anuar, who has acute leukemia, had "almost given up hope," according to his mother. Anuar turned 15 two days ago told the duchess she was "very pretty" as she signed a birthday card for him and told him he was "very, very brave" and "very handsome."
And it had an amazing, uplifting effect on him, his mother Norizan Sulong, said: "It was as if the leukemia had gone."
