Next month, Kate Middleton and Prince William will make their first official trip to Paris. The visit, which is expected to last two days, comes almost twenty years after the death of Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana.
Diana died in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997. And while Prince William has traveled to the City of Light since then, it has never been in an official royal capacity. While in Paris this March, the Duke and Duchess will attend a soccer match, meet with young French leaders, and have dinner at the residence of the British Ambassador to France. Kensington Palace, the official residence of both the Duke and Duchess, as well as Prince Harry, announced the news across their social media channels. On its Instagram account, KP posted an image with additional details about the upcoming trip.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official two-day visit to Paris on 17th and 18th March. Their Royal Highness’ visit is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Full details of the visit will be announced in due course, but the itinerary will include a reception for young French leaders from a variety of fields, a formal dinner at the residence of Her Majesty’s Ambassador and attendance at the Wales v France Six Nations test at the Stade de France.”
And while we’ll have to wait to find out the exact nature of those details, we certainly hope that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be coming along for the ride. After all, if the young children went on a trans-Atlantic trip to Canada last year, maybe they’re more than up for a quick jaunt across the English Channel.
