Prince William has his hands full raising two babies under two, following the birth of his second child Princess Charlotte in early May. But the future King is also filling up his work diary with various royal and charity engagements.

On Thursday 11 June, William will attend a special fundraising dinner organised by Jewish Care to celebrate the charity's 25th anniversary.

The health and social care organisation, which serves the UK's Jewish community in London and the South East of England, cares for older people and those with mental health needs.

According to Kensington Palace, William will meet staff, volunteers and supporters who work for the charity as well as its clients during the event held at Alexandra Palace, north London.

William will then take to the stage and deliver a speech to the 1,400 dinner guests.

Jewish Care looks after more than 7,000 people every week, caring for those with physical and sensory disabilities as well as those who have experienced a stroke or have Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

The charity also runs a youth leadership programme to encourage young people to volunteer in their local community. On top of this, Jewish Care is also responsible for the Holocaust Survivor's Centre, which supports Jewish survivors of the WWII atrocity.

The future King and his wife Kate welcomed their second baby Princess Charlotte a few weeks ago

At the beginning of this year, William gave a moving speech in which he spoke about keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive to "learn from the past and create a safer future".

The 32-year-old royal, who was speaking on the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, said: "We remember all those who suffered so terribly in the monstrous evil of the Holocaust. We must never forget the indescribable suffering, the millions of lives shattered and the human impact behind the statistics."

His grandmother the Queen has also shown her support and is patron of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
