The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duchess of Cambridge have hosted a joint video call with three of their respective children’s hospice Patronages to mark this year’s Children’s Hospice Week. Their Royal Highnesses wanted to thank all those involved in and supporting children’s hospices across the UK during this critical time. Their Royal Highnesses were joined by: – Eddie Farwell, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Children’s Hospice South West, of which The Duchess of Cornwall is Patron; – Clare Periton, Chief Executive of Helen & Douglas House, of which The Duchess of Cornwall is Patron; and – The Delf Family, a recently bereaved family whose son received end-of-life care at East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH), of which The Duchess of Cambridge is Patron. During the call, Their Royal Highnesses discussed the comprehensive care that hospice staff provide, and the way that children’s hospices are able to create positive environments and happy memories during the most difficult of times.
