The Centre of Excellence will provide science, education and mental health support for families. The campus features a school for 48 vulnerable children who have been excluded from mainstream education.

Middleton has been a patron of the Anna Freud NCCF since 2016.

"We are delighted that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the Anna Freud Centre, is opening our new Centre of Excellence on Wednesday 1 May," the organization tweeted Wednesday.

In addition, Middleton will visit the Pears Family School at its new location in London. The school is founded and sponsored by the Anna Freud NCCF.

"The Duchess will also visit the Pears Family School in its new building and meet children and their families participating in a music class," the palace said.

Middleton is parent to three children, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and 1-year-old Prince Louis, with Prince William. The palace shared new photos of Louis Monday ahead of his first birthday.
