We rarely do entire posts dedicated to a future engagement, but news of Kate and William’s upcoming trip to New York merits a deviation from the norm.
From the news release about the visit: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit the USA between 7th and 9th December 2014.” Below, William and Kate arriving in Los Angeles in July 2011. That trip was part of the North American Tour, undertaken in July of that year.
First, a look at the focus of the trip, via the news release:
The Duke and Duchess will attend events on behalf of the Royal Foundation and other charities with which Their Royal Highnesses are closely associated, and also on behalf of HM Government.
The charitable themes will include promoting sustainable conservation issues with a particular focus on collaborative working to tackle the illegal wildlife trade, and also supporting organisations which reflect Their Royal Highnesses’ interest in young people’s mental health and the importance supporting disadvantaged young people from an early age.
