Kate Middleton's Favorite Charity Benefits From Royal Birth

Prince George royal birth plateHe's already one of the most popular babies in the world, and Prince George is about to be a hero to sick babies in need! The birth of the son of Kate Middleton and Prince William was celebrated with the creation of special "royal birth plates" by British tableware maker Royal Worcester. Now one of those plates is being auctioned off to help one of the Duchess' favorite charities.

You might remember Kate choosing her four charities for which she would act as a patron? It was nearly two years ago, so if you forgot, let me refresh your memory!

The Duchess threw her support behind the Art Room, which offers art therapy to kids; the National Portrait Gallery; Action on Addiction; and East Anglia's Children's Hospice (EACH), which helps families and cares for children with life-threatening conditions.

The latter is the charity that won the rights to auction off the "one-off" plate in an online auction on TheSaleroom.com. Bidding began today and will run through November 24. The monies will go to the Hospice.

It's no surprise that as a new mother, Kate seems especially connected to the work at the hospice. As the Duchess said of EACH in April, when she appeared in a video with her adorable baby bump:

As patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices I have been fortunate to see at first hand the remarkable work that they do for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. It is simply transformational.

What a lovely way to celebrate both her patronage and help kids in need!

Will you be putting in a bid? What do you think of the charity the Duchess has chosen?
