The Duchess of Cambridge has given her first official speech abroad, while visiting a hospice in Malaysia.

She described the support provided for terminally ill children, by the centre in Kuala Lumpur, as "life-changing".

The duchess and her husband travelled to Malaysia from Singapore, where they had begun their nine-day tour of the Far East to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

She said the couple were "hugely excited" to be in Malaysia.
