The Duchess of Cambridge still has much to learn about royal life.¬† Prince William and his wife will open a children’s cancer center at the Royal Marsden Hospital later this month, reports People.¬† The opening of the cancer center is part of Kate’s focus on charitable work.¬† Said a palace spokesman, “The Duchess is using the next few months to get to get to know a number of charitable and other causes better, so she can make well informed decisions about her future role.”

What are some rewarding things you can do together as a couple?

Cupid’s Advice:

Though many relationships can get by on romance alone, it’s also important to bring out the best in your partner.¬† Here are a few ways you and your loved one can make a difference:

1. Visit a homeless shelter: Many homeless shelters open on the weekends for a few hours at a time.¬† Instead of sleeping in, volunteer your Saturday morning and help out. ¬†It’ll bond you as a couple and make you feel your time is worthwhile.

2. Visit an animal shelter: Find the nearest no-kill shelter in your neighborhood.  These shelters are almost always short on room and low on money.  Acts as simple as cleaning a litter box can aid the shelter.

3. Donate: If you and your partner don’t have time to visit the nearest charity, try donating instead.¬† Sending some old clothing to the Salvation Army is a fast and easy way to contribute.
