Kate to Make Two Appearances with the Queen

The royal, who has a degree in the history of art, became patron last month of the National Portrait Gallery, in London, which is staging the event. Freud, who died last summer, was famed for his naked full-length portraits that used layers of oils to depict the sitter's flesh in minute detail - creating unforgiving and often unflattering images.

Buckingham Palace officials said Monday the duchess will join the queen and Prince Charles' wife Camilla on March 1 on a visit to a new restaurant at the luxury department store Fortnum and Mason. The royals are expected to have tea at the London landmark, known for its well-stocked food hall, and unveil a plaque commemorating efforts to renovate the Piccadilly Circus neighborhood.
