Prince William and Kate Middleton were married in 2011, and have since been known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William is currently second in line for the throne behind Prince Charles’ father.
The Duke and Duchess live in Kensington Palace with their children, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte. Their family will grow by one this spring!
The royal couple have an incredible taste of touring
The royal couple last toured Australia together. They also went on several solo trips – including a trip where they visited America from June 24 to July 1, 2015 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebration.
The couple went on a six-day trip to promote Britain during their “Great Trip Campaign” – which was a tour of the Far East and the Middle East. This February they are going to Germany and Poland.
They are known for their charity work through the foundation named after them. They also performed engagements in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The couple are fairly well known for making special appearances for charities such as Children In Crisis, Centrepoint, Tusk Trust, Starlight Children’s Foundation UK, NSPCC (National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children), Teenage Cancer Trust & Well Child.
What is the next destination for the royal couple?
In mid-January, Kensington Palace announced that Prince William would visit Israel and the West Bank from 24 to 27 this year, focusing on “the Middle East peace process and the Duke’s interest in environmental sustainability”.
As we know, Israel and Palestine have a long history of problems that have led to unrest. Therefore, it is unlikely that the royal couple will visit Israel.
Prince William also founded his charity called United For Wildlife, which “works with leaders across society to prevent extinction and ensure the long-term health of our precious natural world.” With those two concentrating on those trips, it will make sense that if they go to tropical place as their next trip, they will visit again somewhere like Australia or possibly somewhere else in Asia, like Japan, China or Thailand.
However, Kensington Palace announced on January 31 that Prince William and Kate Middleton would be going to Scandinavia and Northern Europe. Their first stop will be on May 24 in Stockholm, Sweden, followed by Copenhagen, Denmark, on May 25. On the 26th they visit Oslo, Norway, and then go to Helsinki, Finland, on 28 May. They will end their royal tour in Iceland (a country in North America) on June 1st.
Again – it is unlikely that Prince William will go to some tropical place while touring Scandinavia due to conservation efforts in which he is involved through his United For Wildlife Foundation. Last March, he visited Antarctica for an official royal tour where they spent time talking about climate change (along with Prince Harry, who went to the South Pole).
