This isn’t the first important message that Sarah, 60, shared on Instagram this week. On Wednesday, the mother-of-two posted a heartwarming post about the importance of kindness. In the video, the royal said: "So, I have been here in Saudi Arabia for 24 hours and all I have received is just extraordinary kindness. In fact it was so moving today, that I just feel this sort of…just huge embrace of love. And when asked in what do I believe more than anything else I just said 'hashtag kindness'. So it is a huge treat to be able to say Happy World Kindness Day."
