Call it tea with Kate and the in-laws.
The Duchess of Cambridge will join her grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, and her stepmother-in-law, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at an official engagement at Piccadilly's flagship Fortnum and Mason's store on March 1, as "three royal ladies have tea," a royal source tells PEOPLE.

Move over, Kate – the royal family has welcomed a new female into the fold.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is the proud new mother of a Jack Russell terrier puppy named Beth, Clarence House confirmed on Twitter Monday.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was all smiles Monday as she took her rightful place among her new family for the fourth set-piece royal event in five days – though it took a quick assist from Camilla for the crowd to get a good look at her.
The occasion was the annual Order of the Garter ceremony, where Prince William – smiling himself, somewhat bashfully, before turning to chat with his father, Prince Charles, at his side – marched down the hill from Windsor Castle.
Wearing a dove gray long coat and matching fascinator, the Duchess arrived in a burgundy Rolls-Royce and then, with Camilla, greeted some family friends and walked under a canopy over the chapel's Galilee Porch, only to slip out of public view.

With eight days to go to the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, hat-maker to the stars Philip Treacy is swamped.
"People came to see me as soon as the invites went out," Treacy, 43, tells Style.com. "Most will have three or four fittings because, of course, it has to be right; something like a billion people will see them on the day."
And while he assures fans there will be a selection of Philip Treacy hats bobbing in the sea of guests at the royal wedding, he's not saying who exactly will be wearing them. His royal connections are strong, though – Treacy designed Camilla Parker Bowles's dramatic feathered fascinator when she married Prince Charles in 2005 – so naturally there's been speculation he'll be designing for the bride herself this time around.

It's been business as usual for Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, since they endured a terrifying attack on their car by a mob of rioters protesting a tuition fee hike.
But the Dec. 9 riot has raised important questions about security at the upcoming royal wedding.
The attack – in which protestors surrounded the Rolls Royce, reportedly shouting "off with their heads!" – has heightened speculation that the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton will be the focus of more disruption. Reports have surfaced about anarchist groups who plan to target the wedding (and have even set up Web sites to recruit supporters).
