Our Royal Patron, The Duchess of Cambridge, made a surprise visit to Evelina London Children’s Hospital over the bank holiday weekend. During the private visit, The Duchess met with those who were unable to join in with celebrations to mark the Platinum Jubilee for Her Majesty The Queen.

The Duchess was greeted by delighted staff and families on our paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and Sky cardiology ward.

""Janet Powell, Director of Nursing, said: “We were thrilled to welcome Her Royal Highness to the children’s hospital. Our colleagues, children and families, were so delighted to meet The Duchess and mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Our play specialists with the children had been working hard in the run up to the celebrations to decorate all our wards, and our teams loved showing The Duchess the artwork, bunting and displays.”

Our PICU is the lead centre for critically ill children and young people across the South Thames region, and provides a wide range of services and clinical expertise.

Her Royal Highness became Patron of Evelina London in 2018. You can read more about The Duchess’ Patronage and support for Evelina London on our Patronage page.
