The former Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, are scheduled to be the guests of honor at the Tusk Conservation Awards on Sept. 12. The prince is a patron of the Tusk Trust, which funds conservation work in Africa.

"It is a long-standing engagement," a Kensington Palace spokesperson tells the Mirror.

Prince William, meanwhile, has taped his first TV interview since becoming a dad. The full interview will air Sept. 15 on CNN, with an excerpt scheduled to run as part of the news channel's morning show "New Day" on Monday (Aug. 19).
