Duchess of Cambridge to attend two public engagements in January
Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge will attend two public engagements this month.
Clarence House has confirmed that the Duchess – who was known as Kate Middleton prior to her marriage to Prince William in 2011 – will first visit Barlby Primary School in London on January 15, where she will officially name the Clore art room as part of her association with the Art Room charity.
Clarence House tweeted: “The Duchess of Cambridge is Patron of @TheArtRoomUK which offers art as therapy to young people who are facing challenges in their lives.”
The next day, the 32-year-old royal, who is currently pregnant with her second child, will attend an event hosted by the Fostering Network, where she will “celebrate the dedicated work of foster carers”.
The Duchess, who will celebrate her birthday on January 9 and is due to give birth in April, was forced to withdraw from a number of planned engagements late last year because of severe morning sickness.
She was, for instance, forced to cancel a trip to Malta, where she was due to attend a number of specially-arranged events.
However, since entering her second trimester, she has returned to her royal duties.
