Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, will attend a gala for the 100 Women in Hedge Funds charity, which raises funds for women and family’s health, education, and mentoring programs.
The event will take place at Kensignton Palace, where the Cambridges now reside, on October 24 and will benefit Action on Addiction, a charity that focuses on research, prevention, treatment, professional education, and family support, a tweet from the Palace stated.
As one of the most influential women, not only in Britain, but the world, Kate Middleton is joining the foundation following her husband William’s patronage in 2009.
Prince Harry is also a patron, when he and his sister-in-law lent their names to the cause of empowering women.
Kensington Palace stated the 100 Women in Hedge Funds will focus its UK charitable efforts on three organizations, The Charities Forum of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Action on Addiction in 2013, WellChild in 2014, and The Art Room in 2015.
Kate Middleton and her husband William, future King of England, will have a more relevant role in the charities in which the royal family is involved with, as he makes his transition from being a search and rescue pilot for the Royal Air Force to take on more of his duties as heir to the throne.

The couple is known for giving back to the community and as popular members of the royal family all their actions are closely followed by the public.
William and Kate are keeping a busy calendar after their break following the birth of Prince George in July. The couple was out of sight for about a month and has recently returned to a more visible life after coming back to London and moving into their new quarters at Kensington Palace.
Kate Middleton is a beloved figure in England and as such, is using her power to forward many worthy causes she is passionate about.
