In the weeks before the Princess of Wales' cancer revelation, Prince William cancelled numerous public engagements to look after their three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5. Sources close to the royal family told People at the time of Kate's cancer diagnosis video that the Prince would resume his public duties once their children returned to school after their vacation ended (April 17).

His office announced that Prince William will begin his duties on April 18 at Sanbury-on-Thames, where he will assess the work done by the food distribution charity Surplus to Supper. The Prince of Wales will see how the food bank delivers, sorts, and repackages unused food. Later, he will stop by a youth centre in West London, to which Surplus to Supper makes regular food donations.

“Protecting the environment for future generations is one of The Prince of Wales’s key priorities and in 2020 he launched The Earthshot Prize, a global environmental prize and platform to discover, award, celebrate and scale ground-breaking solutions to repair and regenerate the planet,” Kensington Palace said in the statement, per NBC News.

In her cancer announcement video, Kate reflected on Prince William's support amid her ailing health, saying that he was a “great source of comfort and reassurance.” A family friend told People at the time, “This is about supporting her and her feeling supported. It is a joint effort. She doesn’t feel isolated at all.”
