Duchess of Cambridge attend first solo engagement at National Portrait Gallery

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, undertook her first solo public engagement on Wednesday with a visit to London s National Portrait Gallery.

The Duchess, also known as Kate, has recently become a Patron of the gallery. She attended a private viewing of an exhibit by artist Lucien Freud.

Kate studied history of art of St. Andrews University in Scotland, where she met and fell in love with Prince William.

The Duke of Cambridge is currently serving in the Royal Airforce in the Falklands. He is not due back in Britain until the middle of next month, so Kate will be spending Valentine s Day without her husband.

Instead she is spending February 14 visiting her chosen charities in Liverpool, northwest England. She will visit an alcohol free bar in her role as Patron of Action on Addiction. Then she will visit a children s hospital and tour oncology and burns unit facilities.
