The party will be held at Houghton Hall near Kate's Norfolk mansion

Kate most recently carried out an engagement for EACH in mid-March. The Duchess travelled to the nearby market town of Holt in Norfolk to open a new EACH charity shop.

Despite leaving Prince George and Princess Charlotte at home, her children were clearly at the forefront of her mind as Kate picked up some sweet gifts for her brood. As the first customer of the shop, the Duchess purchased a £2 copy of Fireman Sam's Favourite Tales for her son George, who turns three in July.

"Fireman Sam is George's favourite," Kate revealed, while adding that her son had asked her to buy a toy helicopter.

Funds raised will go to a children's charity that Kate supports

Prince William's wife also selected an £8 Tom Kitten Beatrix Potter figurine, which could have been for her daughter Charlotte. She paid for the items in cash with a £10 note.

Kate has been patron of the children's charity since 2012. EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.
