Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband Prince William both love a good date night at the movies. Tonight they will be joined by a hundred children for the premiere U.K. showing of Disney's African Cats, reveals Entertainment.STV. The film follows the lives of a family of cheetahs and a pride of lions, and it premieres in an exclusive event at BFI Southbank. So this will not be a cozy evening with popcorn.
The private screening is a fund-raising event for Tusk Trust conservation organization, one of Prince William's ongoing charities, and one for which he has been a Royal Patron for several years. There is no word on how the children have been chosenÂ—are they the families of other wealthy patrons or kids in need of a special outing? Whichever, they all want a chance to meet Duchess Catherine.
Kate Middleton is known for getting teary-eyed in the sad parts of filmsÂ—Steven Spielberg's wife Kate Capshaw passed the duchess a tissue during the War Horse premiereÂ—so she may need to come prepared. Animal movies almost always have a few sad bits.
Afterward, Prince William will give a speech about the work of the Tusk Trust organization. And still later, word is that the royal couple will travel to Scotland, to celebrate their first anniversary privately at Balmoral Castle on Sunday, April 29. Does it seem real that Kate Middleton has been married for a whole year?
