Kate Middleton and Prince William will visit Manchester next week

On October 14, William and Kate will pay tribute to Lady Di with a visit to a hospice which had been opened by the late princess.

The pair is set to travel to Manchester and take the opportunity to visit a hospice that Diana had built, Kensington Palace has announced.

October 14 will see them visit Francis House, a hospice that offers support to children and young adults with life-limiting conditions.

The royals, who recently returned from their official tour to Canada, will meet with staff, volunteers, and families of inmates. The hospice was opened by the prince’s late mother in 1991.

William rarely talks about his mother so it was a moving moment when he opened up about his loss during a visit to Luton last month. The prince comforted an orphan who had lost his mother to cancer and gave him advice based on his own experience.

“Time makes it easier,” he said. “I know how you feel. I still miss my mother every day – and it’s 20 years after she died.”

Before arriving at the hospice, the Cambridges will visit the National Football Museum, as well as The National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester.

The couple will also be present at a ceremony at the Cenotaph where they will lay commemorative paving stones in honor of the city’s six Victoria Cross recipients after World War I.
