Kate has been absent from the royal scene for the past two weeks due to their children's half-term. Her last known royal duty was on the 15th of October when, as patron of English rugby, she sent a letter of encouragement to the England Rugby League.

She will make a very special appearance at the weekend to cheer on the England rugby team. Kate will watch England in their Rugby League World Cup quarter-final against Papua New Guinea in Wigan on Saturday.

Kate has returned to her royal duties

It is her first match since succeeding Prince Harry as the patron of the Rugby Football League, becoming the figurehead for the Rugby Football Union at the same time.

She is also the first female royal to hold the position. Before the match gets underway, the Princess will meet the England and Papua New Guinea teams on the pitch.

She will also observe a minute of non-silence, held to mark the tournament's Movember Mental Fitness Match Day – a gesture to combat the damaging impact that silence can have upon men's mental wellbeing.
