Cape Town - The Duchess of Cambridge is taking on more responsibility as she prepares to possibly fill Queen Elizabeth’s shoes one day.

Kate was recently announced the new royal patron of the British charity Family Action, a position previously held by the 93-year-old monarch, E! News reports.

The announcement was officially made by the palace. According to Express UK, the charity provides support for families affected by financial issues, mental-health difficulties, substance abuse and domestic abuse.

The 37-year-old mom of three’s first outing since her new role was announced, was to the Peterley Manor Farm Christmas Market in Buckinghamshire, according to the  Mirror.

She spent the day making eco-friendly reindeer food, helping families pick out Christmas trees and making festive decorations.
