Kate is cool and collected as she arrives to give speech

Monday March 19, 2012

The Duchess of Cambridge has arrived to give her first ever public speech.

Kate looked calm and collected as she arrived at the Treehouse Hospice in Ipswich, wearing an electric blue dress by Reiss.

Excited schoolchildren waved Union flags as the 30-year-old royal chatted to officials outside the new facility.

No information has been given about the subject of the speech, but royal correspondents said it would be "brief and beautifully written".
