During her royal duties, the Princess of Wales frequently delivers speeches.

Kate's first official speech as Duchess of Cambridge was 11 years ago.

Kate overcame her nerves to officially open Ipswich's Treehouse hospice.

The speech was given in support of her first patronage, East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

Kate's confidence in public speaking has grown since then.

As part of her early childhood work, she launched a new campaign called Shaping Us.

During public events, royals can also feel anxious or nervous.

During a royal visit to Leeds' Kirkgate Market, Kate reassures a nervous fan.

The Princess of Wales is kind and patient with her fans.
