Will and Kates tour of Asia

Aug 2012

Prince William and Princess Kate will miss the end of the Paralympics due to a very important tour. The Royal Couple will go on the nine day Diamond Jubilee tour in September, as they represent the Queen for the first time. They will be the first Royals to visit the South Pacific Islands of Tuvalu since the Queen and Prince Philip in 1982.

At a Diamond Jubilee thanksgiving service, William and Kate spoke to the Solomon Islands’ Governor General Sir Frank Kabuli and Prince William said, ‘We’re extremely excited, both of us have never been anywhere near there’.

William and Kate witness the amazing tropical beauty of the South Asian Islands as well as visiting the world’s oldest rainforest as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour.

When they stop in Sabah, Borneo, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be able to witness some of the rarest and exotic plants and creatures on the plant, such as the endangered Bornean Orangutan.

Kate is also offering two lucky people the chance to have tea with her. The Duchess is running The Ultimate Royal Tea Party Competition in Malaysia. To win a chance for some private time with Kate, entrants must send in a picture of them drinking a cup of tea; the two most creative pictures will win.
