Kate Duchess of Cambridge in Ipswich
It's just a day to go until Kate the Duchess of Cambridge visits East Anglia's Children Hospices Treehouse in Ipswich today.
She has accepted the honorary position of Royal Patron of the charity EACH who run hospices at Ipswich in Suffolk, Quidenham in Norfolk, as well as at Cambridgeshire and Essex.
Following the tour, Her Royal Highness will make her first public address, before planting a tree in the grounds of The Treehouse to commemorate her visit.
The Treehouse visit today will be Her Royal Highness's first public engagement as Royal Patron of EACH, and follows a private visit to the EACH Milton hospice in November last year.

Graham Butland, EACH Chief Executive, said: 'Everyone at EACH is honoured and extremely proud to have The Duchess of Cambridge as Royal Patron and delighted that she will be formally opening The Treehouse on March 19.''This will be Her Royal Highness?s first public engagement as EACH Royal Patron and children, families, staff and supporters are very much looking forward to the visit.'
