The Duchess is attending a hospice that day

Kate Middleton will spend her wedding anniversary apart from husband Prince William, it has been confirmed.

The Duchess of Cambridge will be given a tour of Naomi House near Winchester in Hampshire, which was opened by Prince Charles in 1997, on April 29.

The visit comes exactly two years after her wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

During the visit, Kate, 31, will spend time with patients and their families and she will also meet volunteers and supporters of the hospice. The pregnant royal is known for her work in the childcare sector, a topic close to her heart, and is a patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

During her first public speech at Ipswich’s Treehouse Hospice last March, the Duchess described the care that hospices provide as a lifeline to families.

‘The feelings you inspire, feelings of love and hope offer a chance to families to live a life they never thought possible,’ she said.
