Early morning preparations for Duchess visit to Ipswich

The Duchess of Cambridge will make her first public speech in Ipswich when she visits one of her charities, East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

Kate will address the organisation's staff, supporters and the families of children with life-threatening conditions who are supported and cared for by the charity which works across Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

She is royal patron of the charity and visited it privately last autumn when researching which good causes she wanted to support.
