"Alongside my mother and sister, I went to talk to Abigail, Mariam, Egon and Aimee and their families about being diagnosed with cancer during the pandemic and overcoming their diagnoses with the help of the remarkable people at the @teenage_cancer which I am so proud to be Honorary Patron of."

 

As new mums, the launch is extra poignant for both Beatrice and Eugenie, as they met with young cancer patients and family members supported by its specialist units.

The Princess added: "Support from Teenage Cancer Trust is having someone in your corner at the toughest time. The physical and emotional impact of being diagnosed with cancer - whilst watching your peers experience normal teenage milestones - can be a hugely traumatic experience.
