The Duchess listened to a speech from Anna Elston, a newly graduated student, who gave a moving account of her journey from alcohol addiction (where she lost custody of her three young children) to gaining recovery and employment.

Kate was presented with a posy of flowers by Anna's three young boys, accompanied by her proud mother, Pauline.
