Kensington Palace recently announced the next big royal tour for Prince William and Kate Middleton coming up this fall, and they're headed to Pakistan.
The Cambridges' official Twitter account posted the news on June 29. "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official visit to Pakistan this autumn, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Further details will be advised in due course," the tweet reads. No word yet on their exact travel dates, but it seems just Kate and William will embark on the trip (and leave George, Charlotte and Louis at home).
The last royal visit to Pakistan was 13 years ago, when William's dad Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles traveled there. Princess Diana also visited the country multiple times in an official capacity and to further her charity work.
"The people of Pakistan still cherish and fondly recall the visits of Her Majesty The Queen to Pakistan during 1961 and 1997," the High Commissioner for Pakistan to the United Kingdom, Mohammad Nafees Zakaria, said. "The upcoming royal visit is a reflection of the importance the United Kingdom attaches to its relations with Pakistan. The two countries enjoy historical links which both sides wish to strengthen further."
