This afternoon, William and Kate visited the headquarters of Child Bereavement UK in Saunderton, Buckinghamshire where they met with staff and learned about the organization’s work. The Duke of Cambridge has been patron of the charity since 2009.
Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
Upon their arrival, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chatted to crowds gathered outside the centre before heading inside.
During their two-hour visit, the royal couple went on separate tours of the charity’s offices and then took time to talk to teenagers, children and parents going through the grieving process. William and Kate also met the Great British Bake Off star and cookbook writer, Mary Berry.
