Kensington Palace Just Announced Kate Middleton and Prince William's Next Royal Visit

As we anxiously await baby Sussex's arrival, his/her aunt and uncle have been making plans for their next royal visit.

Kensington Palace just announced via Twitter that Prince William and Kate Middleton will travel to North Wales on May 8, and visit their previous home that they inhabited for three years together.

While in North Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will stop at Caernarfon Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter Base, then move on to Anglesey.

In the remote Welsh island of Anglesey, the royal couple will visit Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt, a thriving local business which has been operating for more than two decades and won The Queen’s Award for Sustainability in 2017. Anglesey also holds a special place in the Cambridges’ hearts: It was their first home as newlyweds after Kate and William married in 2011.

The pair moved to their Georgian-style Welsh farmhouse due to William’s position as a search and rescue pilot. They were based on the island of Anglesey from 2010 to 2014 (but Kate didn’t officially move in ’til after their marriage in 2011). The couple loved the remote island, according to CNN, and would visit the island’s pubs and restaurants. Middleton was also spotted grocery shopping at the local supermarkets in Angelsey.

“It was such a special time for us,” the duchess previously told a Royal Air Force captain, according to Hello!. “It was the start of our life together really.”

So does this mean Meghan and Harrys baby will be born before May 8, when the Cambridges jet off to their former home?

Fingers crossed (because we can’t keep checking Twitter this much at work…).
