The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s diary is filling up again. On Monday, Kensington Palace revealed two more joint engagements for the royal couple.
Tomorrow, November 12, Prince William and Kate will attend Shout’s Crisis Volunteer celebration.
According to the Palace, “The event brings together people from across the UK who volunteer around the clock with Shout to support people in crisis”.
While there, they will receive updates on Shout’s impact, meet some of the volunteers working with the 85258 text service and take a group photo.
Shout is a text messaging service available 24/7 to those struggling with mental health in the U.K. It was launched by William, Kate, Harry and Meghan and is a part of the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together initiative.
In another post, the Palace announced that William and Kate will attend Tusk Conservation Awards in support of Tusk, a wildlife conservation organization.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the #TuskAwards on Thurday 21st November.
“For almost 30 years @Tusk_org has pioneered successful conservation action in Africa by protecting wildlife, empowering communities and working in the fight to #EndWildlifeCrime.”
This will be a special night for Prince William who became Royal Patron of Tusk in December 2005. He, has actively supported the charity’s work both privately and publicly on many occasions and last year visited Tusk projects in Namibia and Tanzania.
The couple also made a glamourous appearance at the event last year. The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning as she donned again her favorite aqua green lace dress by Jenny Packham with cap sleeves and a beaded belt.
It was fitting that Kate chose to recycle a dress for an event focused on conservation efforts.
During the event, Prince William also gave a short speech after presenting three awards. He warned the impact of what humans are doing to the environment is “ticking towards a tipping point which will become dangerously irreversible”.
The Duke said he was echoing Sir David Attenborough’s speech at the same event two years ago when he “warned that man is losing his own connection with nature”.
“The clock is ticking towards a tipping point when the impact of what we are doing will become dangerously irreversible.
“Whether we are living in an urban or rural environment, nature matters to us all.
“We have a responsibility and an obligation to the next generation to drastically reduce the extent to which we plunder the planet’s natural resources.
