If you think you're busy, imagine being a royal!
Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton will each visit with several of their chosen philanthropic organizations this November, Kensington Palace announced Wednesday, Nov. 6. So, when and where will Harry, Wills and Kate be popping up this month, and how exactly are Jon Bon Jovi andTaylor Swift involved? Keep reading.
Let's start with Nov. 14, Harry will attend the Walking With the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge Departure Event at London's Trafalgar Square. The redheaded royal will deliver a short speech, receive the South Pole Flag and unveil the trophy for the winners of the challenge. Walking With the Wounded raises funds to train those who are wounded, injured or sick during their service and helps them to find work after leaving the military.
Three days after the kickoff event, on Nov. 17, competitors from four teams around the world will depart for Novo Airbase in Antarctica. Harry himself is participating with four teammates, all of whom were injured in Afghanistan. Alexander Skarsgård is also competing, but for the American team. On Dec. 1, after the teams have acclimated to the extreme conditions, the expedition across the South Pole will begin!
Backtrack, though, to Nov. 19 in London, when Prince George's mum and dad will visit the head office of Only Connect, a crime prevention charity and positive community helping prisoners, ex-offenders and those at risk of getting into trouble to rebuild their lives. Will and Kate will also visit two complimentary projects, Bounce Back and Handmade Alliance, that work with specific groups of those who could benefit from the organization's guidance. At one of the project's venues, the royal couple will be treated to a dance performance.
The very next day, Nov. 20, Kate will make a solo royal appearance at a forum for Place2Be, a charity providing school-based mental health and emotional support services. The duchess will listen to and meet with the event's speakers. These individuals are experts on the topic of helping kids to build up their emotional resilience in school and empowering parents' to raise strong, well-adjusted children.
Kate's hubby has a solo event, too, though! On Nov. 26, Prince William will attend the Winter White Gala in aid of Centrepoint, a charity providing housing and a range of services to young homeless people in the U.K. William, who has been a patron of the organization since September 2005, will attend a reception and meet with young people from Centrepoint. But that's not all!
Following a private dinner, the royal will join all the guests to watch a concert featuring the likes of Jon Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift. And at the end of this concert, Prince William will give a short speech and present Jon Bon Jovi with the Centrepoint Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award for his humanitarian work.
It's nice to see Hollywood royalty and the real royals coming together for a good cause!
