Kate Middleton & Prince William Open $28 Million Cancer Unit At Same Hospital Diana Supported!

William and Kate opened the new Oak Center for Children and Young People on Sept. 29 — Kate is following in Diana’s footsteps and we love it!

Kate Middleton is in the midst of trying to decide which charities to support in her new role as Duchess of Cambridge. She has been supporting her husband Prince William‘s efforts at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Surrey, South England, of which he is the President of the NHS Foundation Trust. Could this be Kate’s main passion just like it was for the late Princess Diana?

Kate looked chic in her Amanda Wakeley dress knee-length dress and tan heels when she arrived at the hospital. The hospital is the first ever in the world dedicated to cancer treatment and research, and the new center which William and Kate opened will treat 600 inpatients and over 5,000 day patients every year. The happy couple are getting a tour of the new center and meeting with patients and staff.

Princess Diana held the role as “first Patron” until her untimely death in 1997.

“It’s one of his oldest patronages, dating back to 2007,” a spokesman for the hospital said. “And [Prince William] is very keen to introduce the Duchess of Cambridge to the work that the trust does.”

Kate will also be presented with a bouquet of flowers by a 12-year-old girl named Alice Marples. She interviewed William two years ago for CBBC Newsround and today she’ll meet Kate!

She is being forced to do this work. I love kate, but she didnt earn the nicknames Lazy Katie and Waity Katie for nothing. She is probably into the work now, but a year ago, this is the last thing she would have wanted to do.

Sophia- Why do you have to be so mean. YOU have no idea what the Duchess life was like before she married Prince William. She did work for her parents company but had to quit because she was getting married and had to plan her wedding. Until you walk in her shoes keep you mouth shut. We have no idea what her life was like until she married. She had the press chasing her all over. I am just glad that she did not end up like Prince William’s wonderful mother. So please give her respect.

I’ve seen several “Pauline”s around websites fervently defending Waity Katie when people bash her. Hmmm… interesting.

I personally like Waity Katie’s wardrobe, but I don’t really think she’s done anything worth respect. Chelsy Davy has the press chasing her all over and she’s working. Emma Watson has the press chasing her all over and she’s continuing her degree AND acting at the same time. So let’s face it, Waity Katie and Lazy Katie are all very fit nicknames for the Duchess of Cambridge.

Why is the Duchess of Cambridge still referred to by her maiden name? She’s not a pop star, thank goodness, but should be called properly by her married name.
