Last week, we heard the Duchess of Cambridge utter a few words, and it was good. Now, we get to hear her deliver her first official speech as a royal, and it is even better.

Kate made the speech at The Treehouse, a children’s hospice southeast England. She spoke slowly and deliberately in what was clearly a very well-rehearsed speech, although one that she apparently wrote on her own. Someone obviously told the Duchess to talk slowly, and pause a lot, which she did, and I don’t know, it just kind of warms my heart how hard she’s clearly trying and how much work she obviously put in to doing a good job on this speech. So, you know, happy warm fuzzy internet day.
