Kate Middleton writes touching letter to ‘families of children with life-limiting conditions’

“For families of children with life-limiting conditions, every moment is precious and every memory needs to be cherished and celebrated,” the letter reads. “Children’s hospices strive to create happy moments in the most difficult times any family could face. I hope you will join me in supporting Children’s Hospice Week and work to make every moment count for all of our families.”

Since January 2012, the Duchess has been the Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Led by the charity Together for Short Lives, Children’s Hospice Week unites U.K.’s 53 children’s hospices and children’s palliative care services, using the hashtag #momentscount.

The Duchess of Cambridge is currently on maternity leave since her baby girl came into the world on May 2.

The royal couple has settled with their children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George, at their country home, Anmer Hall.
