Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Asked To Visit China Before Their Second Baby Is Born

The royal couple could be set to carry out a historic tour of China early next year – despite the fact that Kate will be heavily pregnant

With her second baby due in April 2015, a royal tour of China next year may be hard work for the Duchess of Cambridge but it could be on the agenda.

Kate, along with Wills, has been asked to tour the country to improve Britain’s diplomatic links but royal officials admit that Kate may not be able to make the trip because of her pregnancy.


The tour is set to happen in the first three months of next year, and should it happen in March then she may be unable to fly. The NHS advises pregnant women not to fly after week 36 of their pregnancy.


Should the trip go ahead, it will be Kate and Wills’ second large-scale royal tour abroad as parents. But unlike their Australia and New Zealand tour, Prince George won’t accompany them – regardless of whether Kate goes.

The Duchess has got another trip in her diary for next month. She’ll be travelling with Prince William to the US in December to visit New York. Kate will be around 20 weeks pregnant at the time, so well within the 28 week point where mums-to-be require a letter confirming it's safe for them to fly.
