HRH Princess Anne, of the British Royal Family, is set to pay a visit to Butterfly Children's Hospices in Changsha, China, and give a speech at a conference on children's palliative care.

As part of her four day visit to China, on Friday 7 July, Her Royal Highness (HRH) Princess Anne will provide the keynote speech at a the conference on children's palliative care, organised by Butterfly Children’s Hospices (BCH). 

The theme of the conference, the third of its kind in China and organised jointly with the China Life Care Association, is 'Spreading the Hope'.
"At the conference we will be talking about the future where we see more and more families with children needing palliative care given choices, the right information and crucially the support they need to care for their children and make what are often traumatic decisions," says Lyn.

The Princess Royal will then take a tour of the Butterfly Home, the children’s hospice founded by BCH, and meet some of the children, trustees and staff.
It is the first time that a member of the British Royal Family will visit a children's palliative care service in China and the home's charity’s co-founder, Lyn Gould, reports that staff and volunteers are busy preparing for the big event.

HRH Princess Anne is no stranger to charity work and has been President of Save the Children UK since 1970. The Royal website explains that this has given her great insight into the needs of children worldwide and an understanding of the issues affecting developing countries. In her work for this organisation, The Princess has visited Save the Children projects in many countries, including China.
