The Duchess of York was praised by online fans after she released a clip showcasing her work for the Teenage Cancer Trust. She wrote: “I have been patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust @teenage_cancer for over 30 years and I am thrilled to be launching their vital Christmas appeal.”
The Duchess enrolled her two daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, as honorary patrons of the charity and they all met with teenage cancer patients.
Eugenie said: “I’m so proud to be here today celebrating these incredible young people who have achieved and overcome so much.”
One of the cancer patients eloquently shared her journey with blood cancer in front of the cameras: “I have leukemia, it’s a big thing and some days it is scary but I try really hard to look at all the positives that come out of it.”
Beatrice reminds that the figures around teenage cancer are very worrying as every day, 7 young people aged 13-21 are diagnosed with cancer.
The clip has been viewed more than 30,000 times and is part of a national campaign asking people to donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Sarah Ferguson added on Instagram: “Support from the Teenage Cancer Trust means having someone in your corner at the toughest time.
“Young people with cancer are facing the hardest challenge of their lives – and they need our support.”
Many fans of the Duchess praised her involvement in the campaign.

“Our work relies entirely on donations from the public, so we really can’t do it without you.”
