The royals are headed to India!
On Tuesday, Kensington Palace released an official statement announcing Prince William and Kate Middleton's multiple week tour of India commencing April 10. The exciting news comes on the heels of Kate giving birth to Princess Charlotte in May of last year.

Not only will the duo visit important landmarks like the late Mahatma Gandhi's home, but they'll also host a garden party in honor of Queen Elizabeth's upcoming 90th birthday. In addition, the couple will pay a visit to Kaziranga National Park as well as a trip to an environmental foundation founded by Will's stepmom Camilla Parker Bowles.
Sounds busy AND fun! We just wonder how the pair will deal without seeing their precious kiddos for a while…
Either way, we bet they'll have a blast!
Check out the palace's message about the trip (below)!
"In India, the Duke and Duchess will be starting a personal relationship with a country that will play a major global role throughout Their Royal Highnesses' lives. The Duke and Duchess will pay respect to the historical relationship between Britain and India, but will focus on understanding India as it is today and will be throughout the 21st century – a vibrant, entrepreneurial, aspirational nation that faces both its challenges and huge opportunities with confidence."
It seems like this adventure is important and monumental for both countries!
The best part is, William will be able to take in the Taj Mahal, the same monument his late mother Princess Diana visited while on a solo trip in 1992.
A source at Us Weekly described the poppa's excitement, saying:
"William feels incredibly lucky to visit a place where his mother's memory is kept alive by so many who travel there."
Aww. How special.
Best of luck on your upcoming voyage, Will and Kate!
