Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011, and they have since been known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William is currently second in line for the throne behind Prince Charles’s father.
The Duke and Duchess live at Kensington Palace with their children, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte. Their family will be growing by one this spring!
The Royal Couple Has An Incredible Taste of Touring
The royal couple toured Australia last time together. They’ve also gone on several solo trips – including a journey where they visited America from June 24th through July 1st, 2015, to mark 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 will be going to Germany and Poland.
They have been known for their charitable work through the foundation named after them. They have also carried out engagements in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The pair is pretty 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 Point for the Royal Couple?
In mid-January, Kensington Palace released that Prince William would be visiting Israel and the West Bank from June 24th through 27th 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 which has led to unrest. That is why it is unlikely that the royal couple will visit Israel.
Prince William is also setting up his charity called United For Wildlife, which “works with leaders across society to prevent extinction and secure the long-term health of our precious natural world.” With those two focusing on those trips, it would make sense that if they were to go somewhere tropical as their next trip, they would visit someplace like Australia again or possibly somewhere else in Asia, such as Japan, China, or Thailand.
However, on January 31st, Kensington Palace announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton would be going to Scandinavia and Northern Europe. Their first stop will be in Stockholm, Sweden, on May 24th, followed by Copenhagen, Denmark, on May 25th. On the 26th, they’ll visit Oslo, Norway, and then head over to Helsinki, Finland, on May 28th. They’ll end their royal tour in Iceland (a country in North America) on June 1st.
Once again – it’s unlikely that Prince William would go to some tropical place while touring Scandinavia because of conservation efforts he is involved with through his United For Wildlife foundation. Last March, he visited Antarctica for an official royal tour where they spent time talking about climate change (alongside Prince Harry, who went to the South Pole).
