The future Queen wants to use her role to help others, and make charity work her full-time job!

She’s still figuring out what causes she’ll be working for, but Kate Middleton has already made one important commitment — The Duchess of Cambridge will accompany her husband Prince William this month when the couple open a brand new children’s cancer center in London. It’s a cause that’s always been close to William and his mom Princess Diana‘s hearts! Can Kate live up to her late mom-in-law?“The Duchess is using the next few months to get to get to know a number of charitable and other causes better, so she can make well informed decisions about her future role,” A royal spokesperson reveals.

William and Kate will open the new unit at the Royal Marsden Hospital on Sept. 29 — five months to the day since their spectacular royal wedding.

William is the hospital’s president, a role his late mom also held!

The royal couple will be given a tour of the new center and get the chance to meet staff and patients, before unveiling a plaque to officially open the new complex.

No doubt Kate will pose for some moving Diana-esque photo opportunities!

Do you think Kate can be as influential and as loved as Diana? She definitely has the potential to be a great ambassador and effective charity spokeswoman. But can she match her late mom-in-law?
