The 32-year-old also a met a 12-year-old boy named Sam Ogilvy, whose father drowned two years ago. Sam told his story to Middleton using a sand tray, saying: "I told her about my journey. She was really nice. She quite liked the sand tray idea of telling the story."

Middleton also met 6-year-old Bailey Rupe, asking about her mother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer and given six weeks to live, saying: "Are you having tea? Can I sit with you? How is mummy doing?" Middleton also added to the little girl, "Do you find it difficult sometimes? You're a very brave little girl."

After the princess's visit, Bailey said: "I was excited to meet a real princess and it made me feel like a princess for the day, too."

Midleton also visited an art therapy room and addressed children dealing with their parents' illnesses, saying: "It looks far too tidy to be an art therapy room. There's normally paint everywhere and I normally end up getting some on myself!"
