The Duchess is to attend her first solo engagement since the birth of Prince George.

The newly announced engagement will be Kate’s first official duty as patron of SportsAid. The Duchess became patron of the organisation in April, as she increased the number of charities she works with.

During the day, the wife of Prince William will watch young athletes play a variety of sports including wheelchair basketball, volleyball and fencing.

The Duchess will also join the athletes and their parents at an education workshop on nutrition, media and social media training.

Olympians and Paralympians Katherine Grainger, Ade Adepitan and Karen Pickering will take part in the workshop, where they will offer guidance to the athletes.

The visit to the Olympic Park will be Kate’s third engagement since giving birth to the little Prince in July.

The Duchess made a low-key comeback when she surprised race-goers at the end of August when she joined Prince William at the start of the Ring O’Fire marathon in Anglesey.

It is believed the Duchess made a last minute decision to join the Duke of Cambridge as a thank you to the people of Anglesey, for their support during the couple’s stay on the North Wales island.

A week later, the Duchess dazzled as she arrived at The Royal Society for the Tusk Trust Awards in a Jenny Packham floor-length glittery gown.
