THE DUCHESS of Cambridge is set to announce some major new initiatives to be undertaken by her Royal Foundation, according to a statement posted to the Foundation’s website.
The Duchess is a passionate believer in supporting children and young people while they build their skills and confidence, as well as fulfilling their aspirations. In an interview with Hello! a source close to the Duchess said that she “had found work that she’s really passionate about. She has spent a lot of time at the start of her royal life learning about social issues and challenges like addiction, homelessness, mental health.
“It became clear to her that one of the main causes of it all was things not going right in the early years, so she knows the potential advantages to doing things in this space.
“It’s about solving much bigger problems but doing it early.
“She has spent a lot of time with a lot of experts and professionals and has learned from them. She has also done an enormous amount of reading on her own.”
Last year, she enlisted the help of various experts and specialists to highlight the importance of early intervention.
According to the Royal Foundation’s website, this involved practitioners, academics and charities coming together "to develop a significant new body of work that will ultimately support all efforts to provide children with the best possible start in life."
A statement on the website reveals that a new announcement about the project is imminent.
It reads: "This has been a major body of work and will be unveiled later this year."
The Cambridges’ Foundation also works with the Armed Forces, helping to promote the wellbeing and welfare of all military personnel, both present and past.
Another area of particular interest for the Foundation, is conservation.
It supports communities to both protect and conserve their natural resources.
In another update to the Foundation website, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially been removed.
Meghan and Harry’s departure from the site follows their decision to establish their own Sussex Royal charity foundation.
The news of the split was announced earlier this year, with Buckingham Palace confirming that the Royal Foundation would now become the “principle charitable and philanthropic vehicle for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”
The new charity, yet to be officially launched, will be run from Buckingham Palace.
The restructuring of the site came after Harry and Meghan relocated to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, breaking away from their joint household with William and Kate in Kensington Palace.
The two couples had previously been dubbed the “Fab Four” after the appearance at the Royal Foundation forum in February 2018.

At the time, Harry said “working as family does have its challenges”, but insisted “we’re stuck together for the rest of our lives”.
Yet, just 18 months later, the Sussexes announced their split from the charity.
It was then renamed The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Despite the split, the four senior royals came together this week to narrate a short film to launch the Every Mind Matters campaign.
The joint initiative from Public Health England and the NHS aims to help people manage the early symptoms of poor mental health.
The three-minute video was first broadcast at 8.45pm yesterday on ITV, Channel 4, Five and Sky.
