Part of The Duchess of Cambridge’s work is to support The Queen at home and abroad.

Since her marriage, The Duchess has undertaken a number of engagements with her husband, on her own and with senior members of the Royal Family such as The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. 

After much research, Her Royal Highness took on a number of charity patronages in areas which reflect her interests - the National Portrait Gallery, The Art Room, Action on Addiction and East Anglia Children's Hospice.  She is also a volunteer for the The Scout Association.

Her Royal Highness also became Patron of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry which is a grant-giving foundation focusing on the Armed Forces, young people and conservation.

With her husband, The Duchess of Cambridge has carried out two overseas visits on behalf of The Queen, the first to Canada in July 2011.  From 30th June to 8th July, Their Royal Highnesses visited a number of places in the Commonwealth country, including Ottawa, Quebec and Alberta.

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.  Their tour was part of a number of visits by members of the Royal Family to every Realm as well as undertaking visits to Commonwealth countries, Crown Dependencies and British Overseas Territories throughout 2012.

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.  Their Royal Highnesses joined a group of 27 of Britain’s most inspirational and accomplished Olympians and Paralympians from previous Games and between them attended many events during London 2012.
