Kate Middleton was front and center on Thursday in Malaysia where she gave her first ever speech abroad, and RadarOnline.com has the video.

Spoken with elegance and poise, Prince William's wife thanked the staff and families of Hospis Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur and gave hope to the future.

"I have learned that delivering the best possible palliative care to children is vital. Providing children and their families with a place of support, care and enhancement at a time of great need is simply life-changing," Kate said.

"With effective palliative care, lives can be transformed. Treatment, support, care and advice can provide lifeline to families at a time of great need."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in Singapore the day before and had a state dinner with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, as part of their southeast Asia Diamond Jubilee tour to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne.

"It has been wonderful meeting the patients, families and all the staff here," Kate concluded in her two-minute speech. "You have given us the most wonderful welcome."
