Kate Middleton Delivers First Royal Speech

by at . Comments

Kate Middleton delivered her inaugural public speech as a member of the royal family on Monday, addressing a crowd at a charitable organization she supports.

The Duchess of Cambridge, donning a blue-belted Reiss dress, gave her remarks at the opening of the Treehouse at the East Anglia Children's Hospice.

Keeping it short and sweet, Kate delivered her remarks to a small group at the Hospice center, where she recently became a patron. Watch her below:

Calm, collected and stately throughout, Kate Middleton praised the center and centers like it for their tireless efforts and the inspiration they provide.

Kate, whose public profile has grown dramatically in recent weeks with husband Prince William away on military duty, referenced her far-away spouse.

"I'm only sorry that William can't be here today," she said, drawing laughs.

"He would love it here. A view of his that I share is that through teamwork, so much can be achieved. What you have all achieved here is extraordinary."

"What you do is inspirational. The feelings you inspire, feelings of love and of hope, offer a chance to families to live a life they never thought could be possible."

What do you think? How did Kate do?

, here in Canada they are wildly popualr and I have absolutley no idea why. I actually came across a poll that indicated proportionally more Canadians supported the monarchy than Brits. That is rather sad given the fact that the royals have essentially no use whatsoever in Canadian society AND most Brits probably don't even know we share the same monarch.
