Oh how grand!
The royal itinerary for Prince William and Kate Middleton's upcoming Jubilee tour around parts of Asia has been revealed!
In honor of Queen Elizabeth II's 65 years on the throne, the adorable pair will rep the British government during an eight day trip around Singapore, Malaysia and the Solomon Isles, which will be so stuffed with politically-minded duties, there will definitely not be any spare time to Phuket (ok they aren't going to Thailand… but STILL) under the stars.
On Sept 11, England's future rulers will land in Singapore where they will immediately attend an orchid-naming ceremony, at which they will both have a special, stately flower named after them!
The next day the two will travel to Singapore's super majestic artificial rainforest mountains dubbed the Gardens by the Bay, and then later Wills and his princess bride will visit the Rainbow Center, a special needs community school in Queenstown.
Once the sun has risen on their third day, the Royals will hop over to Kuala Lumpur where Kate will make her first overseas speech at Hospis Malaysia, and after, the handsome duo will dine with Malaysian King Tuanku Abdul Halim!
On the 15th, Kate and William will
party visit with some super science-y types at the largest remaining rainforest in Sabah, Malaysia, where they will climb to the jungle's canopy. The day after that the Duke and Duchess arrive in Honiara, Solomon Islands, where they will drive around in an ornately-decorated car, attend a local church service, and enjoy a traditional state dinner!
During Sept. 17th, the couple will split so that Kate can attend a conference discussing women's groups of the Solomon Isles, and William will deliver a speech at a commonwealth youth conference. Later that day, the pair will reunite and tour some of the less-know areas of the Isles.
AND FINALLY, (ha!) on their last day, Kate and Will shall bring their elegant selves to some educational facilities and watch some locals play sport before jetting off home to the UK.
Sounds like a a fun, enlightening experience to us! It's always good to know that people who will one day control the fate of England's citizens are well versed in international cultures!
Yay for not being ignorant about the world!
