Britain’s Countess of Wessex visited children’s hospice
Britain’s Countess of Wessex visited a children’s hospice to mark its fifteenth birthday.
The 51-year-old royal attended a celebration at Christopher’s Hospice, run by Shooting Star Chase, in Guildford, Surrey yesterday (09.02.16).
A tweet off the monarchy’s official Twitter account reads: “Happy 15th Birthday Christopher’s Hospice, and thank you for the wonderful reception for The Countess of Wessex! (sic)”
Whilst the hospice added on their account: “The Countess of Wessex displayed her artistic skills designing her own member of The Friendlies @SSChospices today. (sic)”
Countess Sophie – who is a patron of the charity – spent the day chatting to patients and helping them decorate biscuits and cakes. She also helped blow out the birthday cake to mark the occasion.
Meanwhile, the Countess previously revealed she is inspired by the Queen and praised her for being a “great listener”.
She shared: “Watching the Queen in certain situations – she’s a great listener. And you see her considering what people are saying and you can see the information going in, and she clearly has a great desire to learn all the time. I think that’s amazing at 89, with all she’s seen and done in her life.”
