Kate Middleton is not expecting. Sorry. Let the pregnancy rumors continue.
She is a charitable young woman, however as evidenced by a just-released list of groups she plans on throwing her support - financial and otherwise - behind.
The royal newlywed has spent months familiarizing herself with worthy charitable causes she will devote her life in the public eye to. The four organizations:
Kate Middleton has accepted the honorary positions of...
- Patron of Action on Addiction
- Royal Patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices
- Royal Patron of The Art Room
- Patron of the National Portrait Gallery, London
The latter two patronages are hardly surprising, considering she was an art history student at St. Andrew's University, where she first met Prince William.The children's hospice selection is also understandable and seems a good fit, given the impact Kate Middleton had visiting a children's cancer center last fall.
The Duchess, who celebrates her 30th birthday on Monday, will also serve as a volunteer in the Scout Association, and for the time being will privately volunteer with groups based in North Wales, where she and Will share a home.
As for her next steps, Kate is expected to pay both private and public visits to her chosen charities in the coming months. Wonder what she'll wear!!
