It’s great to hear that Catherine seems to have fully recovered from her hyperemesis gravidarum, as it has been announced by Clarence House that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit the United States of America between 7th and 9th December 2014.
William and Kate will travel to New York for a programme of engagements on behalf of the Royal Foundation and other charities with which Their Royal Highnesses are closely associated, and also on behalf of HM Government.
The charitable themes will include promoting sustainable conservation issues, and also supporting organisations which reflect Their Royal Highnesses’ interest in young people.
On behalf of the UK Government, The Duke and Duchess will attend events celebrating the successful partnerships between the UK and USA in the technology and creative industries sectors.
While in New York, William and Catherine will visit the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center.
The couple won’t be together for the full trip, however, as on Monday 8th December, The Duke will travel to Washington DC, while The Duchess remains in New York.
The Duchess of Cambridge will ‘go solo’ and carry out two engagements in New York, visiting a local child development centre and attending a lunch to celebrate the achievements of a successful British community in New York from the culture, arts, hospitality and business sectors.
For a bit of light relief- and we know that William and Kate enjoy watching sport- on Monday evening, Their Royal Highnesses will attend an NBA Basketball game to help launch a new collaboration between the Royal Foundation, United for Wildlife and the NBA.
The final engagement of the visit will be the University of St. Andrews 600th Anniversary Dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
