The Duke of Cambridge’s latest tour caps busy autumn of foreign visits for the Royal Family

The Duke of Cambridge is heading to Kuwait and Oman this winter. Prince William is making the visit on behalf of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Kensington Palace announced that the Duke will carry out this latest overseas trip between Monday December 1st and Thursday December 4th. Further details of William’s itinerary will be announced in due course.

The trip will take place around six weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s tour of Pakistan and will round off a busy autumn of foreign visits for the Royal Family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited South Africa in September this year with Prince Harry also heading to Angola, Botswana and Malawi during the couple’s fortnight long visit. The Duke of Sussex also made a trip to the Netherlands to support the Invictus Games as autumn got under way and has recently visited Japan, arriving just days after the trip made there by his father, the Prince of Wales, which saw Charles carry out a number of engagements as well as attend the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito. The Princess Royal had also visited Japan earlier in October.

The Countess of Wessex was in Kenya in September and recently spent several days in Kosovo for her work to support victims of sexual violence. The Earl of Wessex visited Malaysia and Australia earlier in the autumn. The Duke of York also visited Australia as well as Thailand.

And there’s still another major tour before William heads to Kuwait and Oman. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are set to visit New Zealand with Charles also heading to Tuvalu and the Solomon Islands on the same tour.

Charles and Camilla are set to arrive on November 17th and Royal Central will bring you the latest on that visit as well as William’s time in Kuwait and Oman.
