Prince William and Kate Middleton’s latest royal tour will be a difficult one, as they’ll be parted from their children for a whole week.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are jetting off for an important royal trip, but it will be tinged with sadness and they’ll be parted from their kids for a whole week.

The couple is embarking on a royal tour (opens in new tab) of Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas from the 19th to the 26th of March. They are reportedly ‘excited’ for their first joint tour since the beginning of the pandemic, but will no doubt miss their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis. 

Even more so, since Kate recently admitted to feeling broody (opens in new tab) lately, despite William jokingly telling her ‘no more children' (opens in new tab).

Prince George and Princess Charlotte have joined their parents overseas before, but it looks like that won’t be the case this time. This is likely due to it still being term time at their schools.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have had a lot on their plate in recent months. From reuniting with Prince Charles and Camilla at the Commonwealth Service to attending the St Patrick’s Day Parade, where they once broke a 121-year tradition (opens in new tab).

Kate has even traveled on a solo trip to Denmark this year, where experts said she was radiating 'confidence' (opens in new tab).

This latest trip is part of the many celebrations marking the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee (opens in new tab). There will also be a four-day bank holiday (opens in new tab), and a special Jubilee concert (opens in new tab), as the Queen has expressed her wish that the occasion will ‘bring together families’ (opens in new tab).
