Kensington Palace Announces Kate Middleton’s First Royal Outing & It’s *So* Princess Diana

This week, Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess of Cambridge will make her first public appearance of 2019 on Wednesday, January 16.

Middleton will pay a visit to the Royal Opera House’s costume department, where she will chat with dancers and learn more about the costume design process.

We can’t say we’re surprised, considering the duchess is a long-time supporter of London’s theater scene. Even her daughter, Princess Charlotte, started taking ballet lessons after attending a special viewing of The Nutcracker last month.

Maybe Middleton will let her play hooky from nursery school?
