Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge is filling up her calendar as she returns to life as a full time royal following the birth of her first child Prince George in July, confirming two engagements next week.

They are believed to be meeting volunteers and staff on Thursday evening outside their London residence ahead of the Sunday service at the Cenotaph in the capital, which they will attend with the rest of the royal family as is tradition.

That's not all though, Kate and Wills will also be heading to Cardiff on Sunday where they will watch Wales take on South Africa in the Prince William cup as part of the Autumn rugby internationals. The Prince, who is vice patron of the Welsh Rugby Union took his wife to the same event last year.

While the couple might be heading to the rugby, William is also known to be a huge football supporter and last week revealed he's keen for son George to follow in his footsteps and support Aston Villa.

In a new video message, posted by the Mail Online, the Duke of Cambridge has spoken out about his love of football, to mark the 150th anniversary of the Football Association.
