Kate Middleton will attend her first official public engagement since becoming a mother on September 12.
New parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be guests of honour at the inaugural Tusk Conservation Awards, reports the Mail Online. It will be the 31-year-old's first royal commitment since Prince George was born on July 22.
After winning fashion fans worldwide with her impeccable maternity wardrobe, Kate's style watchers will no doubt eagerly await the outfit she chooses for the event.
As patron of the charity, William, his wife and their baby boy will undoubtedly be the talk of the evening. At the heart of the occasion, however, is the honouring of unsung heroes of wildlife conservation.
In a new documentary which airs on CNN on September 15, the second in line to the throne talks about his passion for Africa and conservation. The interview is part of an hour-long special titled Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope. The special focus is on William's love for the continent — where he chose to propose to Kate in 2010 — and his dream to save the world's most endangered species.
Since the birth of her first child, the Duchess has been resting and bonding with her baby at her parents' Berkshire home.
Meanwhile, new dad William has returned to his official duties. He made his first public appearance since George's arrival on Wednesday at the Anglesey County Show.
When asked about his newborn, the Prince joked that the royal baby was "pretty loud and extremely good-looking," and added that there had been "just a few sleepless nights but [George] is sleeping much better now." Addressing the crowds with a speech, the new father called Anglesey "an immensely special place for us both" and said the couple would be returning again and again with their new family.
It is widely believed that Prince William will return to London from Anglesey where he can care for his new family. He will reportedly join his regiment, the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals, which will allow him to carry out more royal engagements in support of the Queen.
