It has been quite a busy week for the younger royals, mainly the two power couples. Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Cambridge attended Prince Charles’ 70th birthday dinner party at Buckingham Palace, hosted by the Queen.
The young royals attended a dinner on Thursday as well, a Royal Foundation dinner at Victoria House in Bloomsbury. The Royal Foundation is a charity initiative founded by William, Harry and Kate-with Meghan Markle joining earlier this year-which is meant to tackle issues such as mental health, wildlife conservation, young people and the armed forces community.
Earlier in the day, Prince William and Kate Middleton made a visit to BBC, where they discussed topics like mental health. The Duke and Duchess visited the broadcaster to check up on the work they were doing, them being a key member of William’s Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying. William then sat on the One Show sofa to talk with schoolchildren who have been helping guide the latest development to help young people online.
Prince William and Kate have also been able to spend some quality time with their brother and sister-in-law over the last week. The two couples were joined by a whole host of other royals on Prince Charles’ milestone birthday celebrations on Wednesday. They also had time together at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at Royal Albert Hall on Saturday evening.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had time for one more engagement, and in South Yorkshire on Wednesday, they officially opened a McLaren Automotive’s new Composites Technology Centre in Rotherham.
Prince Harry and Meghan are quite booked as well, with their next big joint outing at the Royal Variety Show at the London Palladium on Monday. This will be Meghan’s first time at the entertainment show, and she should expect to see world class acts such as George Ezra, Take That, Clean Bandit and Andrea Bocelli and his son Mateo.
