Farewell to the boy who gave Kate his last smile
LONDON: The Duchess of Cambridge was last night “saddened” by the death of a boy who gave her his last smile.
Kind-hearted Kate paid special attention to leukaemia patient Zakwan Anuar, 15, during her recent Far East tour with Prince William.
Kate was told of Zakwan’s death after mum Norizan Sulong contacted The Sun. Norizan said: “We were next to him when he had his last moment. He was surrounded by his brother, sister, father, grandfather, grandmothers and school mates. I miss him terribly.”
Before the visit, Zakwan spent his days asleep or crying with pain. But his face lit up when he saw Kate. He grinned and told her she was “very pretty” as she signed his birthday card. She said he was “very handsome”.
