Kate Middleton knows that she has the attention of the world. Whether it’s her wardrobe, her groceries or her charity work, she can be sure that news outlets around the globe are covering her every move.

That’s why the Duchess is taking her time and quietly investigating causes where she thinks she can make a difference. She’s even made unscheduled visits to various charities to see them in action before making her decision.

For now, Kate is taking over a long held family tradition by making an appearance at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are attending the opening of the hospital’s new children’s center on September 29th. They will tour the facility and meet patients and staff.

The hospital was originally one of Princess Diana’s projects and years after her passing, her son William became the president of the facility.

This isn’t Kate’s first time supporting a children’s charity. Earlier this summer she attended an event that raised 28 million for Absolute Returns for Kids (ARK). She also helped raise 5 million for The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry while on her trip to the USA.

We wonder, will Kate take over more of Princess Diana’s causes? Or perhaps be more focused on the health of the planet like her father-in-law? Or maybe she’ll find her own niche in the non profit world. Either way, we can’t wait to see the surge in funding her chosen charities get after she starts working her royal magic.
