The royal couple - who are parents to Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, as well as expecting a third child in April - have made plans to head to the central English city on January 16, which has been named the UK City of Culture for 2021.

During the trip, William and Catherine will visit landmarks including Coventry Cathedral and Coventry University, as well as The Positive Youth Foundation, which is a non-profit organisation based in the city centre, specialising in helping young people across Coventry.

Last year, the foundation was awarded the Gold Standard for Investors In People (IIP), for its work in helping young people across the Midlands to improve their lives.

William and Catherine, both 35, will start their visit at Coventry Cathedral, where they will have a short tour, before taking part in the Coventry Litany of Reconciliation.

Here, they will also meet members of the choir, along with volunteers at the Cathedral's social enterprise, the Rising Cafe, which provides work and opportunities for those overcoming drug and alcohol addictions.

The royal duo will then move on to Coventry University where they are set to open the new £59 million Science and Health Building.

The impressive new facility is the first of its kind in the UK, and will allow students to learn to care for a patient at every stage of their medical experience; from paramedics arriving at their house and their ambulance journey, to their stay in hospital, through to their rehabilitation at home.

For Catherine, the trip to Coventry will be one of her last royal outings before giving birth in four months time.

Recently, a source claimed the beauty was "feeling great" about her pregnancy, after having suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum - which is a severe form of morning sickness - in her first trimester as she did with her previous pregnancies.

They said: "[She is] enjoying her later months of pregnancy and feeling great. It's amazing what a difference the later trimesters feel like compared to the early days, which she really struggled with more than ever this time."
