Prince William's wife was clearly thrilled to have made the engagement, having previously sent her heartfelt apologies at having to cancel her appearance in October. "I wanted to share my congratulations with you all for the launch of the new Clore Art Room," she said in a statement. "I was looking forward to joining you all for this particularly special day as part of The Clore Duffield Foundation's 50th Anniversary year. "I am truly sorry that I cannot be with you all today as you celebrate this milestone," she added. "As patron of The Art Room I feel great pride to see the work that the charity is doing. Vulnerable children flourish in the safe havens that The Art Room provides; this highlights just how important it is to support children at a time when they most need help and support."
