Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s joint engagement
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set for a joint official engagement in London later this month.
The royal couple – who have children George, two, and Charlotte, 10 months – will stop by the urban youth charity XLP on March 11 to see first-hand the work carried out by their mentoring scheme XL Mentoring.
A spokesperson from Kensington Palace confirmed the news on its official Twitter account yesterday (01.03.16), writing: “On Friday 11 March The Duke and Duchess will visit @XLMentoring, part of @xlplondon, which supports young people facing emotional challenges (sic).”
The scheme, which was set up in 1996 by Patrick Regan following a vicious stabbing in a playground, operates in over 60 schools and deals with a wide variety of issues including drug awareness, anger management and racism.
And this isn’t the first time the Duke and Duchess have seen the charity as they also visited one of XLP’s community outreach projects in Sydenham, London, last year.
Meanwhile, this year looks set to be a busy one for the couple, who got married in 2011, as they are set to embark on an official tour of India and Bhutan in April as well as celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday later that month.
