Kensington Palace has announced Kate Middleton’s upcoming official engagement with the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.
Princess Kate will be attending the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets to be held on Feb. 7 at St. Clement Danes church in London. Kensington Palace made the announcement on Jan. 22, according to People magazine. The event would be the Duchess of Cambridge’s first official engagement given her new military related role with the Air Force cadets. Princess Kate was recently conferred the title Honorary Air Commandant, when Prince Philip handed her his patronage for the Air Force cadet organization in December.
The royal mother of two will also be attending the event’s reception to be held at the Royal Courts of Justice. According to Princess Kate’s office at Kensington Palace, her attendance to the reception event will provide her the chance to learn more about the organization’s programs and activities “by meeting a selection of current cadets, veterans and adult volunteers,” People magazine reported.
Apart from the upcoming Royal Air Force Air Cadets’ event, Princess Kate is also set to go on an India and Bhutan tour with husband Prince William. The royal couple is even expected to retrace the footsteps taken by other royals and hopefully re-create the late Princess Diana’s Taj Mahal photo. Princess Diana visited India in 1992 and one of the shots taken during the trip featured her sitting on a bench with India’s iconic landmark behind her.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Princess Kate’s children recently served as the inspiration behind the baby wear line created in honor of the late Princess Diana. The baby wear line was named the Diana Collection and Seraphine’s designer Cecile Reinaud has revealed in an interview that Princess Charlotte and Prince George had a big influence in the collection’s design.
The special collection features clothing pieces such as rompers, cardigans, knee socks and baby dresses. Reinaud even called Princess Charlotte and Prince George as fashion icons despite their age.
