The Duchess, who has reportedly been doing some research on what charities she will champion, has been officially named a patron of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. In her official philanthropic role, Kate will work with the objectives of the foundation, focusing on youth organizations and young people, environmental issues and the armed forces, particularly military members returning home from duty. The decision to give Kate an official role came after the Duke and Duchess helped open a children’s cancer unit last week.
