Kate Middleton suited up in a pale blue Jenny Packham frock on Thursday to give her first foreign speech during a visit she and the Duke of Cambridge made to Hospis Malaysia.

The speech is only the second public speech for Catherine, who gave her first public oration in March, back in England at a children's hospice.

As for the speech itself, Catherine spoke slowly, reading from notes: "William and I are hugely excited to be in Malaysia – this, our first ever visit - and are absolutely delighted to have been invited to join you all here at Hospis Malaysia."

"As Patron of East Anglia Children’s Hospice, a UK based charity, I am thrilled to hear that you have been working with Hospis Malaysia," she also said, "and that you plan to collaborate as you roll out this new program. Through this Patronage, 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. "

After, the royal couple also greeted terminally ill children and were asked to draw pictures on a clay tile -- something many visitors to the center do for the center's wall decorations. While Catherine drew a picture of a tree with birds flying overhead, William made a spectacular creation of the cartoon characters Tom and Jerry.

Before touching down in Malaysia on Thursday, the duke and duchess made one last visit in Singapore to view war graves at Kranji Memorial, where Kate carried a parasol to shield herself from the sun. Malaysia is the second stop for the couple on their nine-day royal tour in Asia, which has already led to wild speculation that Catherine is pregnant after she declined to drink wine twice.

Watch the duchess' speech above! How did she do?
