Duchesses of Cornwall and Cambridge speak to children's hospices

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, teamed up on a set of calls to children's hospices around the UK to mark Children’s Hospice Week. They called Eddie Farwell, co-founder and chief executive of Children’s Hospice South West, and Clare Periton, chief executive of Helen & Douglas House, both of which are Camilla's patronages. They also called the Delf Family, a recently bereaved family whose son received end-of-life care at East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH), which Kate is a patron of. In the call, Kate promised to plant a sunflower in memory of the boy, after his brother raised thousands of pounds by running 5K every day in May.
