Duchess Kate, the former Kate Middleton delivered her first speech today as Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, at The Treehouse, a children’s hospice in Ipswich, England.   Middleton met with the children and their families, planted a tree and gave a brief four minute speech.

Wearing an electric blue dress designed by Trina, said to have been borrowed from her mother, Kate received rave reviews.  Speaking slowly, Middleton was compared to Princess Diana, who spoke rather quickly during her first speech 30 years ago.
