The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make their first official appearance since welcoming Prince George at a charity awards ceremony
Kate Middleton and Prince William will make their first official public appearance as new parents at a charity awards ceremony in London next month.
While it was initially thought that the Duchess of Cambridge would lie low following the birth of her first child, a palace spokesperson insists: ‘It’s a long-standing engagement.’
The new parents will attend the Tusk Awards in London on 12 September to celebrate and honour nominees who have dedicated their lives to conservation. Prince William is patron of the charity of the Tusk Trust, who are hosting the ceremony.
It will be the first time we see the pair together since they emerged from St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington last month, unveiling their newborn son Prince George to the world’s press.
Prince William has also given his very first interview on fatherhood to coincide with the event. The Duke of Cambridge chats openly about his newborn son and the future King in a documentary entitled: Prince William‘s Passions: New Father, New Hope’, to be screened on both CNN and ITN in September. CNN’s Max Foster interviewed the Prince at Kensington Palace about his love for his son, his passion for Africa and his wildlife conservation work.
Max says: ‘I’ve never seen him so animated. We had lots of time with him and he was on great form. I’m thrilled with the interview.’ How exciting.
A spokesperson for ITV added: ‘Prince William also talks about his love of Africa, his commitment to wildlife conservation and his hope that Prince George will one day share these passions. He explains the pivotal part that Africa has played in his life and reflects on continuing a royal legacy in the continent, building on his father’s conservation work and Princess Diana’s humanitarian campaigns.’
The documentary featuring Prince William‘s candid interview, plus footage of him and Kate Middleton attending the awards ceremony, will air on CNN on 15 September at 1pm and on ITV later next month. We can’t wait to see the Duchess!
