COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have packed United Nations emergency supplies in Denmark to be distributed in East Africa.

The British royal couple visited a UNICEF warehouse in Copenhagen to draw attention to the food shortage, which is affecting an estimated 13 million people.

William and Kate Middleton were assisted Wednesday by Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary. Later in the day, the cargo will be flown to the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

The UNICEF supply division in the Danish capital coordinates the distribution of emergency food and medical supplies worldwide, including nutritional treatments for some 320,000 severely malnourished children in East Africa.
