Today, the Duchess of Cambridge visited Evelina House. Kate officially opened the facility and unveiled a plaque to commemorate her visit to the Ronald McDonald House Evelina. Kate was thrilled to open the ‘home away from home’ accommodation for the families of children being treated at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
Kensington Palace shared that the new 59-bedroom house offers comfort and support where families can share their experiences whilst their children are in Hospital.
During her visit, Kate met with several residents of Ronald McDonald Houses, including Dion and Danielle, whose 8-month old baby Mia has been at the children’s hospital for over 7 months.
Kate also met with families in the kitchen, where children were decorating pancakes and taking part in crafts. When asked where George was by one little boy, Kate shared that he was at school, making pancakes himself, but she should have brought him!
For the event, Kate wore what we initially thought was a repeat, but turned out to be new! Kate wore the Rebecca Taylor Cropped Tweed Jacket (pink version here) and matching Sparkle Tweed dress. Both are sold out.
She paired it with navy suede Rupert Sanderson heels.
