It's turning out to be a busy week for the British royals! Leading up to three back-to-back appearances by Duchess Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced their next joint engagement on Jan. 29. Kensington Palace took to Twitter to reveal details, writing the gorgeous couple will be returning to Dundee, Scotland after three years.
Prince William and Kate will be heading to Scotland's fourth-largest city to help open the V&A Dundee Museum, an international design museum and the first of its kind in the country. Much to the delight of Dundee locals, the duo are also set to meet members of the public while stopping by.

The couple are also set to meet with Michelin workers following a decision made to close the plant in 2020 – it's operated in the Scottish city since 1971. William and Kate will spend time meeting with representatives of Michelin Action Group to understand more how the closure will impact the locals – 845 of whom will lose their jobs at the plant.
The last time the parents of three visited Dundee was in 2015, where they paid a visit to the Dundee Rep Theatre and events venue The Shore. Staying true to causes close to both of their hearts, they also met with leaders in the Scottish mental health sector of the organization Scotland In Mind, which helps support and empower those affected by mental health issues, including family members, carers and other supporters.
This visit will mark Prince William and Kate's first official joint engagement of the year, with them previously being spotted together attending a church service at St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham on Jan. 6.
In the days after their quick trip to Scotland, the Duchess of Sussex is set to step out on Jan. 30 and 31, with a visit to one of her patronages, the National Theatre, as well as a meeting with the Association of Commonwealth Universities. On Feb. 1, Prince Harry will join his wife with a day trip to Bristol to stop by the Bristol Old Vic theatre and Empire Fighting Chance.
