Britain's Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are to become patrons of 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF).
Duchess Catherine and her brother-in-law will take on three years of duties for the non-profit organisation - a global association of more than 10,000 professional women which provides unique support to its members, including educational and professional opportunities - as of January 1, 2013.
100 Women in Hedge Funds already has Prince William as one of their benefactors and the company have announced in a statement they are 'pleased' he will continue his work with them.
Mimi Drake, 100WHF and President of Permit Capital Advisors, said: 'We are thrilled to expand our partnership with the Duke of Cambridge to include the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
'We share a common passion for charities in the areas of education, mentoring and family health. To date, our partnership has significantly impacted the charities we have supported and we look forward to building upon that success.'
Catherine - who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage to William - Harry and William have chosen three charities to focus on each year.
The duchess and princes will be involved with Action on Addiction in 2013, WellChild in 2014, and The Art Room in 2015, with each one taken from The Charities Forum of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
All charities reflect 100WHF's three philanthropic themes: mentoring, women's and family health, and education.
