Duchess and Duke of Cambridge

The Duchess of Cambridge is set to visit Centre's Early Years Parenting Unit next week.

The 34-year-old royal - who is the patron of Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF) organisation - is set to make an appearance at the centre on Wednesday (11.01.17) to "find out" and learn more about their work with children under five years old.

The news of Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton prior to marrying the 34-year-old royal Prince William - was announced on Kensington Palace's Twitter account on Thursday (05.01.17).

They tweeted: "The Duchess of Cambridge, @AFNCCF Patron, will visit the Centre's Early Years Parenting Unit on 11 January (sic)."

And Kensington Palace has since retweeted a message from the charity about Catherine's pending trip.

The post read: "Our Patron, HRH Duchess of Cambridge will visit @AFNCCF to find out about our work with under 5s @KensingtonRoyal (sic)."

Catherine's visit is also set to "draw attention" to mental health issues among young children and how to intervene.

Another tweet from Kensington Palace said: "The @AFNCCF visit marks The Duchess' continued desire to draw attention to child mental health issues & the importance of early intervention (sic)."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty has become a the patron of the Royal Photographic Society, and received the lifetime honorary membership for the educational charity, which promotes and supports those interested in the art form, after the official portrait pictures she took of her 20-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte were released.

As well as taking images of her three-year-old son Prince George cradling her youngest child as a tiny tot, Catherine - who is a graduate in the history of art - has previously released images of her family from important milestones over the years, which include Charlotte's first birthday, George's first day at nursery, and a series of pictures from their travels in South East Asia.
