Kate Middleton may be expecting her first child in the coming months, but don't expect the 31-year-old to slow down between now and then. 

Palace officials have announced that the Duchess of Cambridge has added three more charities to patron - bringing the total number of organizations she supports to seven. The new groups include Place2Be (which offers mental health support to school children), SportsAid (which assists young disabled and non-disabled athletes achieve their ambitions), and the Natural History Museum (which exposes children to the wonders of our planet).

In addition to the above patronages, Middleton also volunteers from time to time with the younger Members of the Scout Movement — Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts. Back in late March, despite the cold, snowy weather, the royal joined a number of Cub Scouts for an afternoon of breadmaking, bonding, and survival skills training. According to US Weekly, Middleton taught the youngsters how to make a fire and climb a safety rope. 

As for the royal baby, Middleton says she's due in July but cautioned, "apparently babies have their own agenda." As for names, those are still up in the air as well. "We have a short list for both [boy and girl] but it's very difficult," she added. "My friends keep texting me names!"
