Charity work has always played a large role in the Royal Family’s public life, and Kate Middleton doing her bit by becoming a patron of three charities, which have been named as Place2Be, SportsAid and The Natural History Museum.
Preferring to represent a select few charities to concentrate on, rather than spreading her time across a large number of organisations, the Duchess of Cambridge will become a figurehead to help with profile and fundraising.
Having wanted to play such a large part in the London Olympics 2012, SportsAid seems a natural choice. On hearing that Kate was to be a patron of the charity, swimmer Rebecca Adlington commented: “This is just brilliant news. What a fantastic boost to SportsAid’s work with our next generation of talent. It will certainly help to maintain a living legacy from London 2012.”
