British girl group The Saturdays teamed up with Charles, Prince Of Wales on Friday (21Jun13) to help launch a cancer hospice in England. The pop stars were on hand to help the heir to the British throne open a new Marie Curie hospice in Solihull, northern England after previously laying the first brick at the site when it was under construction. The event also marked Rochelle Humes' first public appearance with her bandmates since she became a first-time mother last month (May13). Humes said of the event, "It is such an honour to be part of such a special day and amazing to see how fantastic the hospice looks, and we are all very proud to be ambassadors for Marie Curie." Meanwhile, in a post on her Twitter.com page, her bandmate Una Healy wrote, "Amazing morning at the official opening of the Marie Curie UK hospice centre in Solihull with HRH Prince Charles."
