"It's our pleasure to invite Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge, to deliver her speech." And so it began! After delivering her first public speech at the Treehouse Children's Hospital in England last March, Kate Middleton took to the podium once again for her first international speech (watch the video above). The Duchess delivered her remarks this morning at Hospis Malaysia while on her Diamond Jubilee Tour of the Far East in the Queen's honor. "William and I are hugely excited to be in Malaysia. This is our first-ever visit," Catherine said, her pristine curls blowing in the wind while she addressed the outdoor audience. "It's so exciting to learn about the country's very first pediatric palative care program." Wearing a pleated, periwinkle dress with three-quarter sleeves by go-to designer Jenny Packham, she went on to describe her work with Treehouse Children's Hospital and how the two organizations plan to collaborate. Well done, Kate!
