She just keeps getting more amazing, as Kate Middleton paid a visit to a medical facility for seriously ill children on Thursday morning (June 19).

The Duchess of Cambridge showed up at Treehouse Hospice in Ipswitch, England as part of the UK’s Children’s Hospice Week event, sporting a pink paisley Diane von Furstenberg dress.

Following her visit, Kate shared, "Around the clock support is crucial for children receiving palliative care. They and their families often need help every hour of every day, both in hospices and at home. As Patron of EACH, I have seen first-hand this remarkable and varied work and just how vital the support of staff and volunteers can be to the families of children with life-limiting conditions. It has been wonderful to see the fantastic public support for Children's Hospice Week over the last few days. Please continue supporting your local children's hospice in whatever way you can."

And East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices CEO Graham Butland shared his appreciation for the Duchess’ support. "As our Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness has really helped put children's hospice services in the UK at the forefront of people's minds and allowed us to demonstrate the full and flexible range of services families can benefit from 24/7.”

“The very active role The Duchess plays, both publicly and in private, is considerable and much appreciated by our staff, volunteers and of course the children, young people and families using our services."
