Between raising two children, spending time with her husband and helping run a country, the Duchess of Cambridge still has time to help those in need.

We would love to know how she does it.

On February 28, the Duchess--or Kate Middleton--paid a visit to the Ronald McDonald Evelina London House where she spent quality time with mothers and children who are living there. The facility just opened its doors and is made to house families with children receiving treatment from the nearby Evelina London Children's Hospital.

"I got a bit emotional talking to Kate," said mother Rebecca Bridges-Wheeler to the Daily Mail. "She stopped talking and let me compose myself. You could see the sympathy in her eyes, she was so warm and down-to-earth."

Bridges-Wheeler's son was born at just 23 weeks and is experiencing multiple health issues.

Middleton also spent time with a mother whose baby, Jack, was born with just half a heart. Because of the Ronald McDonald Evelina London House, the family from Glasgow is able to stay in the city while Jack is treated.


Just before the Duchess left, an 8-year-old girl gifted her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. This little girl--named Isabelle--is living in the house with her family as her younger brother receives treatment at the hospital for multiple illnesses.

Ronald McDonald House Charities deliver programs and services to more than 63 countries and regions across the world.

We are happy the Duchess partnered which such a great organization, helping to spread the smiles.
