It looks like next week is going to be a busy one for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Kensington Palace has just revealed that the duo will travel to the English town of Blackpool on Wednesday (March 6), to visit the iconic Blackpool Tower, and to learn about how regeneration projects in the area are helping to address some of the mental health and social issues facing Britains today.

The visit is set to happen the day after William and Kate reunite with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for an official gathering – their first since Christmas. The Fab Four will join Queen Elizabeth at a special morning reception honouring the 50th anniversary of Prince Charles' investiture (when he formally became the Prince of Wales). The Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Anne will also attend.
“This special reception will mark the Prince of Wales’s 50 years of service to Wales, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, and will be an opportunity to celebrate a range of Welsh charities, organizations and businesses,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. Charles' investiture regalia, which he wore in 1969, will also be on display.
Most recently, Kate attended several events tied to Children's Mental Health Week, while Prince William took part in a series of workshops at a father's development program called Future Men. The pair also took a week out of the spotlight to be with their children – Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and 10-month-old Prince Louis –during the U.K.'s half-term break. It's believed the family spent some quality time together at the Cambridges' holiday estate, Anmer Hall.
