All 1 minute and 50 seconds of it! It was only 231 words long! (I counted from the transcript) and she had it on three sheets of paper! Tree Killer
I had to do longer speeches at primary school when I was 10-12 years old and would've been marked down for how short it was and pausing so much to make it seem longer.
She kept touching her hair because it was blowing in her face during her speech, tie it back woman, all that money on your hairdresser and she can't provide a hairband, just two measly clips on the first day?
Thank you, Your Royal Highness, for your kind words and such a warm welcome.http://ukinmalaysia.fco.g...w=Speech&id=808256682
William and I are hugely excited to be in Malaysia – this, our first ever visit - and are absolutely delighted to have been invited to join you all here at Hospis Malaysia.
It is so exciting to learn about the Country’s very first paediatric palliative care programme and to witness for myself something of the wonderful work of Hospis Malaysia’s superb staff.
As Patron of East Anglia Children’s Hospice, a UK based charity, I am thrilled to hear that you have been working with Hospis Malaysia, and that you plan to collaborate as you roll out this new programme.
Through this Patronage, I have learnt that delivering the best possible palliative care to children is vital. Providing children and their families with a place of support, care and enhancement at a time of great need is simply life changing. With effective palliative care lives can be transformed. Treatment, support, care and advice can provide a lifeline to families at a time of great need.
This is a very special place and so much is already being achieved. It has been wonderful meeting the patients, families and all the staff here - you have given us the most wonderful welcome.
Thank you again for inviting us here - and all the very best to this exciting new initiative!
