Kate Middleton Cancels Another Royal Engagement & Her Heartfelt Note Proves She Really Does Care

It's been a rough month for the Duchess of Cambridge. First she was forced to announce her pregnancy news super early, then she had to cancel her first solo tour, and now Kate Middleton had to back out of another engagement because her morning sickness is still keeping her from traveling. Her hyperemesis gravidarum, a very severe form of the standard pregnancy illness, has yet to clear up so Middleton had to cancel her Royal engagement to The Art Room. She was due to open the organization's ninth center dedicated to helping children with emotional problems through art therapy. A Kensington Palace spokesman relayed the news in a statement saying:

But Middleton decided just sending word of her cancelation by Palace aide wasn't enough, so she penned her own apology to the center, and it's not only lengthy, but incredibly heartfelt.

The fact that, despite her illness, she took the time to write such a sweet letter just goes to show that the Duchess is more than just a pretty face, she really does care about the people of the UK. She's long been berated for being a "lazy royal" so perhaps this will finally show everyone that she's the opposite of that.

I'm sure she'd much rather be out working at The Art Room today. It's clear that the decision to cancel weighed heavily on her and she is sincerely sorry. Here's hoping she recovers soon, because it's evident she's raring to get back on her Royal engagement schedule and continue doing the work she loves to do: helping others.
