In a message penned on the hospital’s social media account, they thanked the Duchess of Cambridge “for thinking of us” as the country celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Kate spent time speaking with patients, staff and family members in the hospital as the Jubilee celebrations got fully underway in the capital.

The hospital tweeted: “We received a very special surprise last night!

“Our Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, dropped in for a private visit to meet our patients, families and staff unable to join in the celebrations this weekend.

“Luckily the hospital was already decked with Platinum Jubilee decorations made by some of the children and young people we are caring for.

“Thank you YRH for thinking of us.”

On Saturday, the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, along with Prince William, 39, made the trip to Wales to lend a hand with preparations for a Jubilee concert at Cardiff Castle this afternoon.

The royal couple brought two of their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, for the stopover in the Welsh capital.

Prince William is expected to pay tribute to the Queen in a segment of the show shared with Prince Charles.

The Queen, 96, is not expected to attend the event after cancelling appearances at St Paul’s on Friday and the Epsom Derby on Saturday.

Her daughter, Princess Anne, represented the monarch at the latter.

This comes after the Queen experienced “discomfort” during her appearance at Thursday’s Trooping the Colour parade, marking her official birthday.

The Queen’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, said the Royal Family members attending Epsom would have loved to have the monarch there with them.

She said: “She will be watching on the TV – she has a few runners today dotted around the country, so she knows exactly what’s going on.”

She added: “She’ll just be sat on the sofa watching the TV. She’ll be in her comfy clothes.”
