Kensington Palace Just Revealed Prince William’s Next Big Outing…

Prince William’s next royal appearance will pay tribute to a noteworthy group of men and women.

Kensington Palace just revealed that the Duke of Cambridge, 37, will make his next public outing on Monday, September 9. The prince will visit the Harcombe House centre in Devon, England, which is home to The Fire Fighters Charity.

While there, Prince William will learn more about the organization, which offers emotional, psychological and physical support to everyday heroes.

The palace announced the news on Twitter, writing, “On Monday 9th September—#999Day—The Duke of Cambridge will visit The Fire Fighters Charity @Firefighters999 ’s Harcombe House centre in Devon to hear about the support that it provides to members of the UK’s fire and rescue services and their families.”

The appearance will take place during an annual event in the U.K.: Emergency Services Day (or “999 Day”). Since 999 is the U.K. equivalent of our 911, the holiday is designed to educate the public about the country’s emergency services and encourage people to volunteer.

The announcement comes just three days after Prince William and Kate Middleton changed the name of their royal charity to The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The original organization, The Royal Foundation, was founded in 2009 by Prince William, Prince Harry and Middleton. When Meghan Markle married into the family, the name was changed to The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. However, Prince Harry and Markle recently separated to start a charity of their own.

As for Prince William’s next big outing, we’ll be crossing our fingers that Middleton tags along.
