The Duchess of Cambridge, as a senior member of the Royal Family, works in support of The Queen in carrying out Royal duties both at home and abroad.

The Duchess regularly undertakes Royal engagements in towns and cities across the United Kingdom, with her husband, on her own and with members of the Royal Family such as The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

Her Royal Highness supports The Queen and other members of the Royal Family at annual Royal events. These include:

  • The Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace
  • Celebrating the Queen's official birthday at Trooping the Colour
  • The procession and service at Windsor Castle for the Order of the Garter
  • The Remembrance Ceremony at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London

The Duchess of Cambridge takes a key role in events of national significance. In 2014, Her Royal Highness joined her husband as members of The Royal Family led moments of national commemoration for the two World Wars in Europe. Together they attended the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Arromanches in June where they met veterans and their families. Then, in August, Their Royal Highnesses led services commemorating the centenary of the First World War in Liege and later joined Prince Harry at a service in Saint Symphorien cemetery near Mons, Belgium.

The Duchess of Cambridge, a keen sportswoman, also represents the Royal family at major national sporting events to galvanize support. The Duchess is a keen tennis fan and has regularly attended the Wimbledon Championships, including the men's final in 2014. Along with Prince Harry, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were Official Ambassadors for Team GB and Paralympic GB in the lead up to, and during, the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Again at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, Their Royal Highnesses spent two days watching sports at the venues and meeting the athletes. They joined forces again in 2014 to witness the spectacular Tour de France Grand Depart in Yorkshire, where they signalled the start of the race. The Duchess presented the Yellow Jersey to the day's leader.

With her husband, The Duchess of Cambridge has also carried out a number of overseas visits on behalf of The Queen, the first to Canada in July 2011. For their second tour, in 2012 The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Malaysia, Singapore, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu as part of Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee year celebrations. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with Prince George, then visited New Zealand and Australia in Spring 2014. In September 2014, The Duchess of Cambridge undertakes her first solo tour to Malta on behalf of The Queen.
