Prince William and Kate Middleton are said to have an incredibly busy schedule as of late. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have reportedly been taking on extra projects to make up for the loss of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as the Sussexes settle into life in Canada.

Though some sources have claimed the couple has been under a lot of stress thanks to their new schedules, they won't be slowing down any time soon. The Cambridges have a big trip in the works.

Under Pressure

Duchess Kate, in particular, has been said to have felt a lot of pressure immediately following Harry and Meghan's exit. Sources said the Duchess of Cambridge was suffering from insomnia and bouts of anxiety after increasing her workload.

Kate was also said to be dealing with a lot of emotions at the time, as she and Prince Harry were good friends and she was rumored to be missing his presence very much. Thankfully, things seem to have improved for the Duchess.

Feeling Confident

Sources later said Duchess Kate was moving past her anxiety and starting to feel a lot more confident in her skills and position in the Royal Palace. The inside sources said Kate was feeling more adventurous with her dresses and that she recognized her necessity to the Royals.

Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly been seeing Kate as her "rock" through all of this. And if sources are correct, Prince William has, too. The Duke is said to be leaning on Kate a lot in this time.

Off To Australia

Prince William and Duchess Kate are still going strong on their charitable appearances. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently in the middle of planning an upcoming trip to Australia and are talking with the Prime Minister to iron out the details.

Sources say William and Kate were "shocked and saddened" by the news of the Australian bushfires and plan to visit with victims while visiting. They also plan to visit with firefighters who have been battling the deadly flames.

Widespread Devastation

The Australian wildfires have been particularly devastating. A recent survey estimates 57 percent of Australia's population has been affected directly by either the fires or the resulting smoke.

Though the fires have reportedly slowed down now due to storms and flooding, the effects will take a very long time to recover from. Damage has been done across the country to both land and wildlife. Many animals were hurt or killed as a result of the flames, rendering some -- like koalas -- functionally extinct.
