Duchess of Cambridge schedules first public speech

Tuesday March 6, 2012

The Duchess of Cambridge is to make her first ever public address.

Kate will speak on March 19 at the opening of The Treehouse, a hospice service for Suffolk and Essex.

It is run by one of the charities of which she is patron – East Anglia Children's Hospices.

As well as giving her first public address, Kate will also tour the facilities at the centre, which was built from funds raised by a £3 million appeal.

She will also meet with staff and patients, and plant a tree in the grounds.

Royal aides say she is "very much looking forward" to the visit.
