The Duchess of Cambridge, who is four months pregnant with her second child, had a royal engagement at a charity event in Norfolk to launch an appeal on behalf of East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH) on Tuesday, Nov. 25.

She spoke to guests at the event and met 33-year-old British physiotherapist Leigh Smith. The woman opened up to the Duchess about the death of her 3-month-old baby daughter Beatrice who passed away in February after suffering from a heart condition called cardiomyopathy.
Kate hugged Smith at the launch and told her with tears in her eyes,

“You’re a very brave lady — I’m just so, so sorry.”

Smith talked to reporters at the event and said it was such an honor to hear from Kate.

“I wrote to Kate after Beatrice’s death to tell her about the amazing support I’d received from EACH. She wrote a personal letter back to me saying what an honor it was to hear my story. I thought that was so lovely as obviously it was such an honor to hear back from her. She said she was very touched to hear Beatrice’s story.”
