Prince William recently honored his mom Princess Diana’s legacy by visiting the hospice that the Princess of Wales opened 30 years ago.

The Duke of Cambridge went to Birmingham on Tuesday for an entire day of activities in central England. Among the prince’s scheduled events is a trip to Acorns Hospice, a local charity that provides specialist care for life-limited and life-threatened babies, children, young people and their families across England.

During his visit, Prince William met some of the families who use the hospice’s facilities. While at the hospice, Kate Middleton’s husband also came across a plaque on the wall that commemorated Princess Diana’s opening of the charity in 1988. Beside the plaque is a framed photo of Prince William’s mom.

Kensington Palace also uploaded a photo of Princess Diana carrying a young Prince William in her arms while looking at the same plaque inside the hospice.

“@AcornsHospice was opened in 1988 by HRH’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales – and today The Duke will join in celebrations for the charity’s 30th anniversary,” the palace captioned the photo.

After attending the 30th anniversary of the hospice, Prince William also participated in the first National SkillForce Prince William Award Graduation Ceremony earlier in the day. He also unveiled the statue of Major Frank Foley in Mary Stevens Park in Stourbridge.

Foley was a British Secret Intelligence officer who worked as a passport control officer for the British embassy in Berlin. He was responsible for saving 10,000 Jewish people from persecution in Germany during the 1920s and the 1930s by helping them exit the country.

While honoring the life of Foley, Prince William also had the opportunity to meet some of Foley’s family and descendants.

Following his recent engagement, Prince William will head to Namibia, Tanzania, and Kenya on a private working trip next week ahead of the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London this year.

It has been reported that Prince William will go to South Africa alone, and Kate Middleton will stay back in London to be with their three children. The Duchess of Cambridge will still be on maternity leave until next month.
