Prince William Spends the Day with Troops During Latest Stop on His Royal Tour of Kuwait

Prince William is making his way through another royal tour, this time in Kuwait and Oman.

On Sunday night, William arrived in the Persian Gulf, where he began his four-day visit to the Middle East. This marks the first time that the Duke of Cambridge has visited both countries.

Upon arriving at Kuwait International Airport, he met the Minister of the Amiri Diwan (Royal Palace) Affairs, Sheikh Ali al-Jarrah al-Sabah, according to USA Today. On Monday, he visited the al Jahra Nature Reserve outside Kuwait City.

During day three, William watched British and local troops conduct drills and simulations on Exercise Desert Warrior in Kuwait, before traveling to Oman to visit with the Royal Navy. And from Kensington Palace’s latest Instagram post, it looked pretty intense.   

“In Kuwait, The Duke joined Kuwaiti and UK troops at Exercise Desert Warrior for the bi-annual training exercise,” the caption read. “The Duke then traveled to Musandam in Oman to learn more about the Royal Navy of Oman’s responsibilities monitoring maritime traffic passing through the Strait of Hormuz.”

We first learned of the tour back in early November, when the official announcement was made on Twitter. Unlike the Royal Tour of Pakistan, the 37-year-old Duke of Cambridge is doing this one solo. 

With only one day left, we can’t wait to see what William has on his royal agenda.
