Six-year-old cancer sufferer flings herself into Kate's arms

The Duchess of Cambridge was moved to tears when a young cancer sufferer flung her arms around her during a bouquet presentation.
Diamond Marshall, six, who was diagnosed with an abdominal tumour in February, was overcome at meeting Catherine when the Duchess arrived at Calgary Airport yesterday.
The youngster, who has undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy and is currently awaiting surgery, rushed forwards across the tarmac and flung herself into Catherine's arms
She wrote to them from her bed in the Alberta Children's Hospital after watching the Royal Wedding and asked if she could meet a princess.
Her mother also wrote to the charity saying: 'We realise Diamond's wish is enormous. We also realise she may not have the chance to go to Disneyland where she wants to lunch with princesses.
'Should the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just happen to swing by for a visit it would go a long way for helping her spirits as she is in awe of Princess Kate's fairytale like story.'
Since 1984 the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has worked to grant the dreams of 17,000 children and their families.

The Duchess, who was wearing a pretty primrose silk dress by Jenny Packham, looked visibly moved and embraced the young girl.
Afterwards Daimond's stepmother Danielle, 32, said: 'She was so lovely and so gracious. For a little girl who has dreamed of meeting a princess it was a dream come true.'
