ROYAL TRIP: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Prince William and his wife Catherine are to visit India early next year, royal officials announced on Friday (13) during prime minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Britain.
It will be the royal couple’s first visit to India, but it is not clear whether their two children, Prince George, aged two, and Princess Charlotte, six months, will accompany them.
“Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit India in the spring of 2016,” a statement from their Kensington Palace residence said. “Full details will be confirmed early next year.”
The news came shortly after Modi, who is in Britain on a three-day visit, had lunch with the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Friday.
The trip could carry memories for William of his mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, who famously posed outside the Taj Mahal, a monument to love, in 1992, as her marriage to Prince Charles collapsed.
