Duchess of Cambridge to focus on Prince George while William undertakes course

The Duchess of Cambridge is to focus on Prince George while Prince William undertakes a course at the University of Cambridge in January.

New mum Kate will spend most of her time looking after the five-month-old Prince as the Duke of Cambridge takes part in a 10-week-course in Agricultural Management at the University.

“For the Duchess, the next 10 weeks is about focusing on baby George,” a royal source told The Express.

The Duchess, who had a busy schedule in the run-up to Christmas, is expected to attend a handful of official engagements before increasing her workload in the spring, to coincide with the couple’s visit to Australia and New Zealand in April.

On Monday, Kensington Palace revealed Prince William was “very much looking forward” to the course which will give the second-in-line an understanding of contemporary issues affecting agricultural business and rural communities in the United Kingdom.

The new father will one day inherit the Duchy of Cornwall as heir to the throne, a vast portfolio of estates currently owned by his father. In the past, William has attended board meetings of the Duchy’s council and visiting the estates to gain an idea of how the Duchy runs.

While taking the course the Prince may stay in Cambridge or commute daily, while the Duchess resides at Kensington Palace with Prince George.

Last week, William and Kate with George joined the Royal Family at Sandringham for Christmas Day. The proud parents walked hand-in-hand as they walked to church on Christmas morning for the annual service.

Kate told one well-wisher Prince George had been more interested in wrapping paper, while William explained the couple were excited for when he is bigger next Christmas.
