Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrate Commonwealth

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge undertook two engagements celebrating the Commonwealth on March 22nd, ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April. This was her final engagement before she gives birth to her third child next month.

The Duke and Duchess began the day at a SportsAid event at the Copper Box in the Olympic Park, where they watched a wheelchair basketball session and met the players, some of whom hope to compete in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in which the sport will feature for the first time. Finally, the Duke and Duchess took part in a Commonwealth Quiz in which athletes, coaches and supporters will be questioned on their knowledge of the Commonwealth Games.

Then, the Duke and Duchess took part in preparations for a Commonwealth Big Lunch at St Luke’s Community Centre, where they were given a briefing on the work of the community centre in the café, meeting staff and volunteers. They took part in a recipe workshop and discussion in the kitchen with service users, who regularly discuss their favourite dishes and what inspires them to make them.
