Britain's Duchess Catherine is to meet women recovering from substance abuse.

The 31-year-old royal - who is currently expecting her first child with husband Prince William - will visit the treatment centre at London's Hope House later this month, a spokesperson has confirmed.

Her aide said: "The Action on Addiction programme at Hope House offers a safe, secure and comfortable place for women to recover from substance dependence and receive additional support for other compulsive disorders.

"Her Royal Highness will meet clients and staff at the 23-bed residential treatment centre."

The 12-24 week programme is for women aged 18 or over who have undergone detoxification and first stage treatment.

During the programme, clients participate in daily groups and workshops where they share experiences, as well as one-to-one counselling in private therapy rooms.

It will be one of the first major projects Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton prior to her marriage William in April 2011 - has undertaken since announcing her pregnancy in December and spending three days in hospital for severe morning sickness.
