The Duchess of Cambridge is currently on maternity leave from royal duties, but come September 12th, Her Royal Highness will be back in the swing of things.
The Daily Mail confirmed this morning that Catherine will take on her first royal engagement since giving birth to Prince George on July 22nd. Her Royal Highness will join the Duke of Cambridge as guests of honor at the first-ever Tusk Conversation Awards.
The awards will be put on by the Tusk Trust, an organization that works to protect African wildlife from poachers. Prince William is a patron of the trust, and has been passionate about the continent for most of his life.
Kensington Palace confirmed the news to the Mail, stating that this has been “a long-standing engagement” for the royal couple.
In conjunction with the event, William will give his first post-baby interview to CNN‘s Max Foster, to air in the states on September 15th at 1opm ET. The Duke talked to Foster about his work with the Tusk Trust and his hope that Prince George will be able to experience the same Africa that Charles was able to share with his own sons.
A portion of the interview will air on CNN’s New Day August 19th at 8am ET.
