Prince William Confirmed To Visit Japan And China Next Year – But Pregnant Kate Will Stay Home

The Duchess of Cambridge will be around seven months pregnant when Wills sets off on the royal tour

Since the possibility of a royal tour to Japan and China was mentioned earlier this week, we’ve been waiting to hear whether Kate would be going.

With her and Wills’ second baby due in April, it seemed unlikely that the Duchess would be willing to travel such a long distance.

But it’s now been confirmed that she will give the trip a miss and stay home with Prince George – leaving Prince William to fly solo.

And while we’re slightly disappointed that we won’t get to see Kate rocking some ah-mazing maternity looks that she no doubt would have had she gone on the Far East excursion, we think it’s definitely best for her and unborn baby that she doesn’t go as the NHS advises pregnant women not to fly after week 36 of their pregnancy.

Wills will spend three days in each country, leaving at the end of February and returning to the UK in early March – in time for his second child’s birth in April.

While Kate’s missing out on this trip, she is heading across the pond with Wills next month to visit New York – so keep your eyes peeled for some more of her pregnancy style then!
