Ahead of The Duke and Duchess’s visit to Evelina London Children’s Hospital it was announced that The Duchess of Cambridge would become Patron. Here is the press release from Kensington Palace below:

The Duchess of Cambridge has today become Patron of Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

The new patronage has been announced ahead of Her Royal Highness’ visit to Evelina London later this morning with The Duke of Cambridge. The visit will see Their Royal Highnesses learn more about how the hospital supports children and their families, and the specialist services provided to children with rare and complex conditions.

Through visits to hospitals and hospices The Duchess has seen first-hand the impact that comprehensive care and support can have upon young children. Her Royal Highness’s new patronage of Evelina London provides an opportunity to champion the medical professionals working on the front-line in children’s healthcare, and shine a light on their work supporting children in their early years.

The hospital, which is next year marking its 150th anniversary, is part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, of which The Queen is Patron. Evelina London cares for children and young people from before birth, throughout childhood and into adult life. The hospital provides a range of services to children across south London and south east England. Evelina London also provides community services for children and their families in Lambeth and Southwark.

Marian Ridley, Director of Evelina London, said: “We are absolutely delighted and deeply honoured The Duchess of Cambridge has chosen to become our Patron. The Duchess shares our passion for giving children and young people the very best start in life and Her Royal Highness’ support will help champion the life-saving care our staff are providing to our patients.

“It is a huge pleasure to welcome Their Royal Highnesses back to our hospital and we are absolutely delighted that they are able to join us as we begin to celebrate our milestone 150th anniversary. We are immensely grateful for Their Royal Highnesses’ support and we look forward to working closely with The Duchess as our Patron.”
