OK! NEWS: KATE MIDDLETON PASSES OUT SHAMROCKS ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY IN ENGLAND

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge delivered her speech at The Treehouse, a children's hospice in Ipswich. While in southeast England, she didn't say anything over-the-top special, but just the fact that she delivered a speech instantly made news around the world.

As USA Today pointed out, Kate is actually the royal patron of the East Anglia Children's Hospices, which also runs Treehouse. In addition to giving a speech, Kate met with children and their families, planted a tree and talked about the inspirational work of the hospice.

"I'm only sorry that [Prince] William can't be here today," Kate said. "He would love it here. What you've achieved here is extraordinary." Prince William is actually on duty right now in the Falkland Islands and is expected to return this week.
