Kate Middleton To Do First Solo Royal Tour In Malta
Beginning late September, Prince William's wife will spend two days on tour in Malta to commemorate 50 years of the island's independence.
"She's really nervous but excited about stepping out by herself," a Middleton family source tells Us. Adding, "The trip will focus on some of the causes that connect with her beliefs and patronages." (Kensington Palace are not confirming details until a later date.)
Prince George's mum, 32, has shown she's capable of carrying her own at numerous engagements, including visiting Ipswich's Treehouse, a children's hospice run by the organization East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH), for which she serves as the royal patron, sans William in June. During her time at the facility, the Duchess visited with patients and learned more about palliative care.
Aside from enjoying matches—and making funny faces—at Wimbledon, the royal recently helped kick off the start of Tour De France in West Tanfield, England on July 5, with William and brother-in-law Prince Harry. The Duchess is also planning Prince George's upcoming first birthday party. The cherubic prince turns 1 years old on July 22.
