Kate Middleton worked a mere 68 days in 2016 and was dubbed the laziest Royal of them all. That must have stung because now the Duchess of Cambridge appears to have picked up the pace and is now busier than ever.
William and Kate have an official joint visit planned to a Child Bereavement UK Centre. New Royalty World reports that the Cambridge’s will help the center in Stratford celebrate its first anniversary. No information was revealed regarding the date of the William and Kate’s visit, but it is believed Kate will join William on the same day as an appearance at the Anna Freud Early Years Parenting Unit on January 11.
Prince William has been a patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009. Upon this tour of the London location, William and Kate will see the positive difference the centre makes in the lives of families in mourning across the United Kingdom.
Kate Middleton and Prince William reportedly are slated to attend a Family Support Group session where children and their parents can meet families in similar situations. The group discussions include sharing memories, feelings and help find support networks.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will wrap up the tour of the Child Bereavement UK Centre in Stratford by joining those that fund the centre’s East London location. The centre’s staff, volunteers and those that have used the charity’s services will also join in the celebration.
It was previously announced that Kate Middleton will make an appearance on Wednesday, January 11 at the Early Years Parenting Centre which is a branch of the Anna Freud Centre of which Kate is a patron.
The EYCU provides resources for proper mental health care for parents and their children under five years old. Kate will meet with families who utilize the serviced of the charity, as well as staff members of the Early Years Parenting Unit who have created the specialized treatment programs.
The Duke of Cambridge is slated to visit Centrepoint UK, a youth hostel in Kensington that provides shelter to homeless youth on Tuesday, January 10. Centrepoint UK also assists young people tackle physical and mental health problems and offers resources to accessing education and employment.
William and Kate seem to be focusing their attention more and more on the charities involving mental health, children and families.
Kate Middleton already has two Royal visits on the calendar for 2017. It certainly appears that she is finally taking Royal responsibilities seriously and will work more than 68 days in 2017. Keep checking CDL for all your royal news and updates!
