Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, attended an event in Norfolk today in support of EACH (East Anglia Children's Hospice), one of her chosen charities. Duchess Kate, who is coming to New York City next month with Prince William, was glowing in a red Katherine Hooker dress - a classic shift style that was comfortably a little roomy for her growing baby bump. She wore her hair in a bumped-up pony tail, her stylist going for something new this time 'round with lots of volume and some definite teasing.

Today's event was to launch a fundraising effort for EACH supported by the Duchess to raise £10 million. The appeal is to build and equip a new children's hospice in Norfolk, which will serve families in several counties. Kate attended along with over a hundred influencers in the region, to learn how they can help advance the project.

Said Kate in a statement yesterday, "I greatly admire the dedication, generosity and achievements of the charity's supporters and volunteers, and look forward to seeing the progress of this campaign."

The event took place not far from William and Kate's new country home, Amner Hall, which they'll be moving in to with Prince George soon. The 10-bedroom mansion given to the Cambridge family by Queen Elizabeth is being referred to as simply their second home, that they'll keep Kensington Palace as their primary residence, but we expect with William's new job in the countryside that Amner is where the family will spend most of their time. With its own tennis courts and swimming pool -- not to mention much more privacy than London -- that's not exactly a bad deal.
