Fresh from making her maiden public speech, Kate shovelled in four mounds of earth with a spade before stepping back and admiring her work.

She was then handed flowers by children from the hospice, including wheelchair-bound Bethany Woods, 10.

Kate then went on a brief walkabout to meet the hundreds of well-wishers who had waited patiently outside.
