THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE TO DELIVER MESSAGE OF SUPPORT FOR DEPLOYED MILITARY PERSONNEL AND THEIR FAMILIES OVER FESTIVE PERIOD

London and Cyprus

Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th December, 2018

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake two engagements in support of deployed military personnel and their families who will be apart over the festive period. Their Royal Highnesses wish to deliver a message of support to deployed personnel and to acknowledge and honour the fact that many Serving personnel are away from their families at this time of the year.

Approximately 7,500 military personnel are currently serving overseas or away from home on exercises. A large portion of these have children who will have a parent away over the festive period.

On Tuesday 4th December, Their Royal Highnesses will host a Christmas party in London for families and children of deployed personnel from RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham serving in Cyprus. The Duke is Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire, which is home to Typhoon Sqns, who currently deploy to Cyprus in support of Op SHADER. RAF Marham have 31 Squadron, who are also contributing to OP SHADER.

The event is being supported by The Royal British Legion in recognition of the unique contribution and sacrifices Serving personnel and their families make year round, and especially when they are separated during the festive period. The support of their families and loved ones is vital not only when personnel are serving, but through transition, recovery and civilian life after service, and The Royal British Legion ensures that those family members are supported in return.

The family focused event will feature a number of stalls where children can take part in activities including stocking decorating, cracker making, snow globe decorating and creating Christmas party kits. There will also be children’s entertainment from Sharky and George, as well as a photo booth and a post box so that guests can take pictures and send messages to their loved ones in Cyprus.

The following day on Wednesday 5th December, The Duke and Duchess will fly to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to meet with Serving personnel, families living on the base, wider station personnel and members of the local community. RAF Akrotiri is home of the Cyprus Operations Support Unit which provides joint support to British Forces Cyprus and operations in the region to protect the UK’s strategic interests.

On arrival in Cyprus, Their Royal Highnesses will meet deployed personnel from 11 and 31 Squadrons, operating Typhoon and Tornado GR4 Squadrons aircraft respectively, who are engaged on operations in support of Op SHADER, the UK’s contribution to the ongoing campaign against Daesh. They will also meet personnel from the lead infantry company of 2 Mercians, who have recently been supporting Op TORAL in Afghanistan.

The Duke and Duchess will then visit and officially open the Oasis centre which is used by Serving personnel on the base as a recreation area when they are not on shift. The centre has recently been renovated by staff working on the base, with trade work having been provided by members of the local Cypriot community. Before unveiling a plaque, Their Royal Highnesses will visit the cinema room, the video room where personnel can make private calls to their family and friends back home, and the café area which is run by CESSAC. CESSAC is The Church of England Soldiers’, Sailors’ and Airmen’s Club which operates amenity centres in military stations and other places at home and abroad and manages rented housing for elderly ex-Forces personnel and their families.

Their Royal Highnesses will then have the opportunity to meet station personnel, their families and representatives from British Forces at the Sergeant’s Mess. On arrival, The Duke and Duchess will do a short walkabout to meet as many people as possible based at RAF Akrotiri. They will then join a number of families at a Christmas reception where they will have the opportunity to find out more about life on the base. Before departing, Their Royal Highnesses will hand over presents to personnel from 11 Squadron from families they met the previous day at the Christmas party.

THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT LEICESTER

Wednesday 28th November, 2018

The Duke, President of the Football Association, and The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Leicester on Wednesday 28th November to pay tribute to those who were tragically killed in the helicopter crash at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium on Saturday 27th October. Their Royal Highnesses knew the Club’s Chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, and wanted to visit the city to recognise the warmth and compassion that the people of Leicester and fans of Leicester City Football Club have shown in reaction to the accident.

The Duke and Duchess will begin the day by visiting the tribute site near the stadium to pay their respects to those killed in the accident, before meeting with a group of players and members of the Club’s management team. Their Royal Highnesses will then meet volunteers and club supporters who helped to relocate the thousands of tributes which were left outside the front of the stadium to the site.

Afterwards, The Duke and Duchess will visit King Power Stadium itself where they will meet with representatives from local charities who were supported by Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha. Their Royal Highnesses will hear how his support enabled the charities to better the lives of people in the wider Leicester community.

Next, Their Royal Highnesses will visit the University of Leicester to hear about some of the educational programmes that Leicester City Football Club has helped to support. This includes a £1m donation made by Mr. Srivaddhanaprabha in May 2018, which will be used to help fund medical research and training at the University through the creation of a Professorship in Child Health.

Their Royal Highnesses will then have the opportunity to speak with students, before meeting some of the University’s Centenary scholars. The Centenary scholar programme has been created as the University prepares to celebrate 100 years since a fund was established by Dr Astley Clarke for its foundation. It was created as a living memorial to those who fought and made sacrifices in the First World War. The Duke and Duchess will have a chance to meet the people of Leicester in the University’s Centenary Square before departing.

THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT A UCL DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROSCIENCE LAB

UCL, London

Wednesday 21st November, 2018

The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Professor Eamon McCrory, Co-Director of the Developmental Risk and Resilience Unit in the Psychology & Language Sciences Division at UCL, on Wednesday 21st November.

During the visit, The Duchess will learn more about the Unit’s neuroscience research into how environment and biology interact to shape the way in which children develop both socially and emotionally. The Unit aims to better understand the factors that contribute to healthy development, as well as those that are linked to the emergence of behavioural and emotional problems in children. Research into developmental risk and resilience has scope to inform professionals and policy makers in ways that can improve the lives of children and families.

One of The Duchess’ key areas of interest is championing the importance of providing solid social and emotional foundations for children to support their development and emotional resilience as infants, setting them on the best possible pathway for a happy and healthy adulthood. Earlier this year, Her Royal Highness set up a steering group made up of practitioners and academics from a range of disciplines, including neuroscience, mental health, nursing, perinatal care and education. This group has met several times to discuss what can be done to make a positive difference to the lives of children by focusing on their earliest stage of life, from pre-birth to infancy.

During her visit, The Duchess will be shown the Unit’s MRI Scanning Facility to learn about UCL’s groundbreaking research on how early experience shapes brain function. Her Royal Highness will be shown how the scanner is used to study the brain, and will see the resulting images that allow scientists to see differences in brain structure and function. The Duchess will hear from members of Professor McCrory’s neuroscience research team about how they work closely with children and families to shed new light on resilience following early adversity. Her Royal Highness will then join a roundtable meeting with leading researchers and students to learn about the wider ambition for developmental neuroscience.

UCL is conducting world-leading neuroscience research into the critical importance of the early years, and developing new treatments and ways of supporting children and parents. Its work includes a focus on the early parent-infant bond and how it develops; on neural plasticity (the extraordinary ability of the brain to adapt in the early years); and how genetic and environmental factors contribute to the development of conduct problems. This important work is helping to inform our understanding of early childhood development, providing new insights to radically reshape policy and practice in education and health, and to promote child well-being.

Duchess of Sussex to Visit Hubb Community Kitchen

Hubb Community Kitchen

THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX WILL VISIT THE HUBB COMMUNITY KITCHEN

Al Manaar, North Kensington

Wednesday 21st November, 2018

The Duchess of Sussex will visit the Hubb Community Kitchen to see how the funds raised by Together: Our Community Cookbook are already making a difference.

Supported by The Royal Foundation and published by Penguin Random House companies, Together features over 50 recipes from women whose community was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

Last summer, a group of women gathered in a communal kitchen at the Al Manaar community centre in West London, where they could prepare fresh food for their families, friends and neighbours. As they cooked together and shared recipes, as a community they began to connect, heal and look forward. Word spread and more women joined in – this was the start of the Hubb Community Kitchen.

Thanks to the proceeds from Together, which was published in September, the Hubb Community Kitchen has been completely redesigned and re-fitted, with the women’s input, to capture the joyful spirit of the Hubb Community Kitchen as a place to bring the community together over food. The new facilities provide a safe and professional space for the women to cook, gather and run activities within their community.

Previously the kitchen was only able to open two days a week due to funding. The women are now able to use the kitchen seven days a week, and have been upskilled to gain food hygiene qualifications and empowered to start their own projects, which will help others in their community benefit from the kitchen.

The Duchess, who has made regular private visits to the kitchen since January 2018, will meet the women as they prepare fresh meals for the local community in the newly renovated kitchen. The women will be preparing 200 meals in just one day, to be delivered to local groups, including elderly people’s homes, homeless shelters and women’s refuges.

The Duchess will learn about some of the planned new outreach projects at the kitchen, which will be funded by proceeds from Together. Supported and mentored by UnLtd, the foundation for social entrepreneurs, the women are now embarking on their own projects including a group for women affected by domestic violence, a scheme to deliver nutritious, freshly cooked meals for women on maternity wards, and a project to produce healthy treats for children. Her Royal Highness will also hear about the women’s long-term vision for the Hubb Community Kitchen, and how they hope to use future proceeds to reach out to more people in their community.

Since the book was published in September, the inclusive ethos of Together has resonated all over the world, and inspired people not just to buy the book, but to cook, eat and gather in their own communities. Together reached number one on Amazon.co.uk book chart within hours of being announced, and has appeared in the Sunday Times and New York Times Bestseller lists, selling tens of thousands of copies since its release. An update on book sales and proceeds will be given on the day.

The Duke of Sussex will visit Zambia

The Duke of Sussex will undertake a visit to Zambia on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th November 2018. His Royal Highness will visit the Commonwealth country at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. While in the region The Duke will also attend a board meeting for African Parks, of which he is President.

On Monday 26th November, His Royal Highness will attend a reception to celebrate UK-Zambia relations at the Residence of The British High Commissioner, Fergus Cochrane-Dyet OBE. The Duke will have the opportunity to meet representatives from British businesses working in Zambia as well as young people and key figures working in the conservation sector. At the reception His Royal Highness will give a few remarks.

The following day on the 27th November, The Duke will visit Burma Barracks to attend an event commemorating WWI and WWII Zambian veterans. His Royal Highness will have the opportunity to meet with veterans and hear about their time serving in the Zambian military. The Duke will also meet widows of veterans as well as be shown round a special photographic exhibition about the African soldier of WWI.

Later that morning His Royal Highness will attend an event for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which he is also President. The Commonwealth Trust champions, funds and connects young leaders who are leading social purpose ventures around the world by giving them a platform that takes their work seriously, funds their work, shares and amplifies their ideas.

The Duke will visit Circus Zambia, a partner of the Trust. Circus Zambia was founded by Gift Chansa and friends from Chibolya, a district of Lusaka that faces many challenges. The organisation equips young people from vulnerable backgrounds across Lusaka with life skills while providing educational and employment opportunities. On arrival, His Royal Highness will meet young people who have benefited from Circus Zambia as well as Queen’s Young Leaders. The Trust’s other partners present will give a short presentation to The Duke during the visit. These include members of CAMA the alumnae network of CAMFED, which tackles poverty and inequality in sub-Saharan Africa through the education of girls and the empowerment of young women. His Royal Highness will then give a short speech.

The Duke’s final engagement in Zambia will be a visit to BongoHive, the country’s first technology and innovation hub. The organisation provides a range of startup and tech programmes, workshops and events all focused on making Zambia Africa’s next hotbed of innovation. During his visit, His Royal Highness will sit in on one of the workshops, meet entrepreneurs practising their pitches ahead of the next pitch funding competition and hear from founders of start-ups who have benefited from BongoHive’s support.

A speech by The Duke of Cambridge on Social Media and Cyberbullying

A speech by The Duke of Cambridge on Social Media and Cyberbullying, BBC Broadcasting House, London

Thank you, Sarah. I want to start by thanking Alice Webb and her team at the BBC for their amazing work so far in developing the Own It app.

You are creating a practical, powerful tool to help children use their smartphones and social media with confidence and with safety. I am so proud that this has sprung out of the Cyberbullying Taskforce work. So thank you, Alice, and the BBC for stepping up. It’s now important that our technology partners get right behind the app to make sure all children can benefit. We’re counting on all of you.

I’d also like to thank all of our partners on the taskforce – the tech companies, the ISPs, the charities, and the academic experts. The expanded Stop, Speak, Support, campaign which is now rolling out to schools across the country is just one of the things that we should be celebrating. I am so grateful to you all for the time, expertise, and resources you have contributed. It hasn’t been easy, but I believe our attempt to work collaboratively has been instructive for the rest of the world.

Now, we launched our commitments one year ago. And when we did, I told the taskforce members that I would be honest in assessing what we achieved and what we did not. And that’s what I’m going to do today.

To explain where I think we have got to, I want to begin by taking a step back to the early days of social media.

Over a decade ago, when social media first became a standard part of daily life, there was so much justifiable reason for optimism.

Some of this was about personal excitement.

  • That friend we lost touch with was suddenly back in our lives.
  • The grandparent living far away was now able to keep up with the day-to-day life of the family they cared so much about.
  • The fun we had at parties, the victories we celebrated on the football pitch, the cake we ate at our child’s birthday – all of it was captured, posted and shared with our friends, making us feel closer to each other even when we were apart.

And some of it was about the very nature of our society and culture.

  • Our politics appeared more direct and more transparent.
  • The physical distance between nations and people seemed less important.
  • New ways to discover and discuss music, film, and books were appearing all the time.

The men and women who invented and developed social media platforms are justifiably proud of the difference they have made in the world. They have achieved extraordinary things and created connections across borders, generations, and cultural divides that were unimaginable at the turn of the century.

I believe we are stronger when we are connected and more successful when we can understand each other’s experiences.

We all have to acknowledge, though, that much of the early optimism and hope of social media is giving way to very real concern, and even fear about its impact on our lives.

We have seen that the technology that can allow you to develop an online community around a shared hobby or interest can also be used to organise violence.

The platform that can allow you to celebrate diversity can also be used to cocoon yourself in a cultural and political echo chamber.

The new ways we have to access news from across the world are also allowing misinformation and conspiracy to pollute the public sphere.

The tools that we use to congratulate each other on milestones and successes can also be used to normalise speech that is filled with bile and hate.

The websites we use to stay connected can for some create profound feelings of loneliness and inadequacy.

And the apps we use to make new friends, can also allow bullies to follow their targets even after they have left the classroom or the playing field.

It is this issue of cyberbullying that we have come here to discuss today. As we do, however, I believe it is crucial that we see the connections across all of these challenges.

Over the last few years working with the Cyberbullying Taskforce, it has become clear to me that the men and women who lead social media companies are motivated by the right things – the value of connection, friendship, family, and knowledge. But as this list of unintended consequences grows, a culture of defensiveness is undermining the sector’s relationship with the public.

To explain what I mean, it’s important to share my experience.

I convened the Cyberbullying Taskforce not because I had any expertise in technology policy – I do not and I have never pretended to.

I convened the Taskforce because I was a new parent. And I saw that my friends and peers were seriously worried about the risks of the very powerful tools we were putting in our children’s hands. For too many families, phones and social media shattered the sanctity and protection of the home.

As we grappled with this we felt a distinct absence of guidance.

Should we read our children’s messages?

Should we allow them to have phones and tablets in their rooms?

Who do we report bullying to?

We were making up the rules as we went along.

And when I worked as an Air Ambulance pilot or travelled around the country campaigning on mental health, I met families who had suffered the ultimate loss. For too many, social media and messaging was supercharging the age-old problem of bullying, leaving some children to take their own lives when they felt it was unescapable.

I felt that I might be able to make a difference on this issue. I did not have the answers, but I did have the ability to invite the brightest leaders and researchers in social media to sit around the table, to listen to parents and children, and see what we might do together to make the online world safer and happier for our young people.

What I found very quickly though was that the sector did not want to own this issue.

I heard doubts being cast about the scale of the problem.

I was told that companies were already doing plenty and just needed more credit for it.

I saw denials about the age of young children on some of our most popular platforms.

And crucially I heard over and over again that a collective approach – across the industry, with charity partners, ISPs, researchers, and parents – just wouldn’t work. The individual platforms were just too different and user expectations too complicated to try to come up with common tools that could be easily understood by children, parents and teachers.

So a year ago, when it came time to launch a series of commitments that the sector would make on this issue, I announced a plan of action that I freely admitted did not go as far as I hoped.

Now it did include some very positive things – a joint awareness campaign, new guidelines for reporting bullying, and a pilot for a shared emotional support platform. A year on though, even those modest commitments have not been implemented with the enthusiasm I would have hoped for.

And while I am grateful that today we are announcing that the emotional support platform and the Stop, Speak, Support campaign will get fresh energy, I am disappointed that we are ending our taskforce collaboration without a real, collective sense of pride about what we have achieved.

Now I will admit I have learned plenty through this process about how I can best lead similar endeavours in the future. I underestimated the scale of the challenge that this process would represent. I may have been too ambitious and I may have needed to look again at who we brought to the table.

I am worried though that our technology companies still have a great deal to learn about the responsibilities that come with their significant power.

I say this not in anger. Again, I believe that our tech leaders are people of integrity who are bringing many benefits to our lives and societies.

I am very concerned though that on every challenge they face – fake news, extremism, polarisation, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy, and bullying – our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot.

Their self-image is so grounded in their positive power for good that they seem unable to engage in constructive discussion about the social problems that they are creating.

The journey from inventors in the student dormitory to the leaders of some of the most valuable companies on earth has been so fast that they may struggle to understand that their incentives have changed. The noise of shareholders, bottom lines, and profits is distracting them from the values that made them so successful in the first place.

They are so proud of what they have built that they cannot hear the growing concern from their users.

And increasingly they seemed resigned to a posture with governments and regulators that will be defined by conflict and discord.

It does not have to be this way.

Social media companies have done more to connect the world than has ever been achieved in human history. Surely you can connect with each other about smart ways to deal with the unintended consequences of these connections.

You have made so many of our institutions engage directly with the people they serve. Surely you can build a new relationship with your own users that is based on service, community, humility and transparency.

You have powered amazing movements of social change. Surely together you can harness innovation to allow us to fight back against the intolerance and cruelty that has been brought to the surface by your platforms.

And you have brought families together in ways that were previously unimaginable. Surely you can partner with parents to make the online world a safe place of discovery, friendship, and education for their children.

You can reject the false choice of profits over values. You can choose to do good and be successful.

You can work in the interest of the children and parents who use your products and still make your shareholders happy.

We not only want you to succeed. We need you to.

Thank you.

The Duke of Cambridge will attend a Football for Peace Graduation Ceremony

Copper Box Arena, London

Thursday 22nd November, 2018

The Duke of Cambridge will attend the graduation ceremony of 30 Young Peace Leaders from Football for Peace’s UK City for Peace programme at the Copper Box Arena on 22nd November 2018.

Cities for Peace is a programme created by Football for Peace, a global football charity that aims to develop relationships and understanding in marginalised communities around the world. The organisation encourages social cohesion by using football to bring children together from different cultures, faiths and backgrounds. By working together, these young people learn to confront preconceptions, stereotypes and extreme ideologies through their shared passion of football.

On the day, the event will honour the organisation’s Young Peace Leaders who have completed the City for Peace programme. Through this programme, Football for Peace works in conjunction with local councils, football clubs and schools to train young people aged 15-18 in how to unite their communities on and off the pitch, from running local football tournaments to organising classroom workshops to discuss issues currently dividing their communities.

During the visit, The Duke will attend a workshop on equality, diversity and inclusion, as well as conflict resolution, which will be delivered by Football for Peace tutors and attended by Young Peace Leaders. His Royal Highness will then meet the charity’s Footballing Ambassadors, teachers and watch over 60 students from six schools in Newham who will be taking part in a Peace Tournament and other football drills sessions led and managed by the Young Peace Leaders. The Duke will then help present the certificates to young people from London, Birmingham and Luton who have completed their Youth Peace Leaders programme.

This event coincides with the launch by Football for Peace of the #FootballSavesLives campaign, a new pledge to train 500 young people across the UK to become Peace leaders by 2020. This campaign will be launched on the day with the participation of international football players including Wilfried Zaha, Mesut Ozil, John Terry, Louis Saha, Bacary Sagna, and Troy Deeney.

THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE VISIT THE BBC TO HIGHLIGHT WORK TO COMBAT CYBERBULLYING

Broadcasting House, London

Thursday 15th November 2018

To mark Anti-Bullying Week, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit The BBC to view the work the broadcaster is doing as a key member of The Duke’s Taskforce on the Prevention of Cyberbullying.

Their Royal Highnesses will meet young people who wrote and performed in a new campaign video for ‘Stop, Speak, Support’, which is a youth-led code of conduct to provide guidance on what to do when they witness bullying online. The campaign was started by the young persons’ panel on the Taskforce and is now being run by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which is rolling out materials to thousands of schools across the country.

The Duke and Duchess will also meet parents and children who have been helping guide the latest tech developments from the BBC to help young people online, and join BBC Director General Lord Hall as he announces the broadcaster’s latest initiative. Further details will be confirmed in due course.

His Royal Highness and The Royal Foundation convened the Taskforce in May 2016, to support young people and their families affected by cyberbullying, with a focus on 11-16 year olds.

The Duke brought together some of the world’s most recognisable names in media and tech, as well as children’s charities and parents, to work alongside a panel of young people to try and find a way forward. Together they set themselves the task of creating a safer and more supportive life online.

Chaired by tech entrepreneur Brent Hoberman CBE, the Taskforce members include: The Anti-Bullying Alliance; Apple; BT; The Diana Award; EE; Facebook; Google; Internet Matters; Music.ly; NSPCC; O2; Sky; Snapchat; Supercell; TalkTalk; Three; Twitter; Vodafone and Virgin Media.
