Twenty foreign nationals are reportedly among the dead, with the majority of them being teenagers and young adults, according to the local government.

The royal couple have kept a low profile over the past few weeks, spending half-term with their three kids.

But William will be back at work on November 1 in order to attend the 10th annual Tusk Conservation Awards in London, which is a very significant event.

The news was announced in a press release from Kensington Palace, which read: “Next month at Hampton Court Palace, the annual Tusk Conservation Awards will honor the achievements of top conservationists working in Africa.

The following morning, a symposium with this year’s award winners, past recipients, and conservation experts will also be attended by His Royal Highness.

As the patron of English rugby, Princess Catherine’s last known royal duty was on October 15 when she sent a letter of support to the England Rugby League.

I wanted to wish the England Rugby League teams the very best of luck in your respective World Cup competitions, it started.

Catherine went on: “I was incredibly honored to be named the RFL’s Patron earlier this year, not the least because I understand how significant this time is for rugby league.

The ability to compete in any World Cup tournament is amazing, but the opportunity to do so while hosting international teams and showcasing everything that this fantastic sport has to offer is truly special.
