With only four days till her 30th birthday, Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, has revealed the four British charities she will support in 2012:
1. The National Portrait Gallery
2. Action on Addiction
3. East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices
4. The Art Room
Her selects range from notable organizations to smaller charities focused in the arts, which she studied. Middleton will also return to her roots as a Brownie assisting the the Scout Association.
A statement from St. James’s Palace:
“The duchess’ first patronages and her volunteer position reflect her…personal interests in the arts, the promotion of outdoor activity, and supporting people who are in need of all ages, especially young children. The duchess has chosen to support organizations that complement the charitable work already undertaken by her husband.”
