Kate Middleton will reportedly add three more patronages to her resume in the coming weeks. As part of her return to royal duty, the Duchess of Cambridge will become a patron for three more unspecified charities in March, the Daily Mail confirms in a Feb. 17 report. "The Duchess is already patron of four charities and will add a small number to that list," a Palace spokesperson is quoted as saying.
According to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official website, Kate is already a patron to: Action on Addiction, East Anglia Children's Hospices, National Portrait Gallery, The Art Room, and The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. It's unclear what other patronages she'll add to her duties, but it's likely they will focus on young people, the armed forces, and/or conservation efforts which have been the her and Prince William's focus.
Kate Middleton will make only her second official appearance of 2013 on Tuesday at Action on Addiction's Hope House. However, it's expected the Feb. 19 outing will be the first of several appearances over the next few weeks as she returns to royal duties.
Kate's been taking it easy since being diagnosed with acute morning sickness in early December. The pregnancy condition cleared her calendar for most of December and January. Now, after a vacation in Mustique with Prince William and her family, Kate Middleton is said to be returning to royal duties as she nears the halfway point in her pregnancy.
