The couple will start off their royal engagements by visiting many local community projects across various cities. As part of their international initiatives, it was also announced:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, will host a reception at Buckingham Palace to mark the UK-Africa Investment Summit on Monday 20th January #InvestInAfrica"

It is reported that while William and Kate will host the reception at Buckingham Palace, the summit as a whole will be by hosted Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The aim of the UK-Africa Investment Summit is to promote investment opportunities in Africa by bringing together governments, businesses, and other international institutions.

According to PEOPLE, promoting African initiatives is particularly important for the couple because they got engaged in Kenya in 2010, so the continent holds a special place in their hearts.

Carrying on many of the projects left behind by their late mother, Princess Diana, both William and Prince Harry frequently visit the continent and work on many conservation projects in places like Tanzania and Botswana.

Daily Mail reports, just before they joined Queen Elizabeth at St Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham on Sunday, Kate started off the year hosting her own event when she held an early birthday celebration.

Ahead of her 38th birthday on January 9th, she hosted a few of her closest friends at her and William's country home at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

William and Kate's plans come only a day after Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance when they visited London's Canada House.

Meghan and Harry went there to personally thank the Canadian High Commissioner Janice Charette and her staff for their hospitality during their stay in Canada over the holiday.
