A mother’s sadness left Duchess Kate tearful this week while trying to comfort the grieving parent. While she is usually calm and collected, Kate Middleton broke down during a fundraising occasion on Monday afternoon in the presence of a mom suffering from the pain of loss. Entertainmentwise News reveals this Tuesday, November 25, 2014, that the royal figure offered her best comfort to the grieving woman, saying she was a “brave lady” and she was “so sorry” over the recent passing of her infant child.
What person or event is devastating enough to make Duchess Kate tearful? It is very apparent that Kate Middleton knows what it is like to love a child, being a new mom herself with another baby on the way, and can only imagine the pain a mom must feel at the loss of one. The Duchess of Cambridge was said to comfort a grieving woman whose infant daughter had recently died due to severe heart complications.
In a touching display that has moved the hearts of people across the world, Middleton was said to break down and embrace the inconsolable woman, telling her to stay strong and that she was a brave figure in the face of such overwhelming heartbreak. Although Duchess Kate has been suffering recurring morning sickness and a very hectic schedule, the source site notes that her health issues or obligations didn’t get in the way of her reaching out a loving hand to a fellow mom in need.
According to the Inquisitr News this evening, witnesses saw Duchess Kate tearful when she went to visit Norfolk’s own East Anglia Children’s Hospitals. There, the goodhearted lady of Cambridge reached out to lend her support and strength to 33-year-old Leigh Smith. Smith’s infant daughter, named Beatrice, had died earlier this 2014. She was still suffering over the unexpected and saddening death. The loss is an ongoing painful thorn in her side, said the mom.
Following the incident, Smith wrote a powerful letter to Kate Middleton, requesting that she use her royal power and influence to make a statement regarding the saving of children and the concerns of infants in hospice care. In a move that insiders said shocked and pleased the grief-stricken, the Duchess of Cambridge wrote a meaningful letter of her own right back to her.
It seems that with the pregnant royal’s attendance expected, hundreds of supporters were present as she arrived to meet with a number of struggling children, families, and other loved ones in the hospice system at Norfolk. By taking the time out of her busy schedule to come, she managed to raise a few million dollars during the fundraiser, and the presence of Duchess Kate’s genuine feelings and tears no doubt gave hope and comfort to those at the event.
Many people were understandably touched after seeing Duchess Kate tearful for her people and the plights of a young mom grieving over the pain of loss of her child. She was said to embrace the woman and do her best to comfort her. Talk about a tender royal touch.
“Kate sought me out and gave me a hug just before she left,” said Smith to local media sources. “I was getting quite teary-eyed, she had tears in her eyes and she just said to me: ‘You’re a very brave lady and again, I’m just so, so sorry.’”
