Prince William Is Set To Embark On A Solo Royal Tour Of The Middle East This December

by Angela Andaloro

Prince William may be fresh off a successful royal tour of Pakistan, but the future king is getting ready to pack his bag once again.

The Duke of Cambridge will be making a four-day trip to Kuwait and Oman in early December. Unlike the previous royal tour, Kate Middleton will not be joining him.

Kensington Palace announced the royal tour on Tuesday. The trip, undertaken on behalf of the British government, will see William head to Kuwait on December 1. Later, he will travel to Oman. He’ll return to London on December 4. The trip is another way William will be following in Prince Charles‘ footsteps, who has frequented the countries on several visits over the past few years.

The trip to the Gulf regions follows the Duke of Cambridge’s 2018 trip to Israel and the disputed territories. It was the first time a British royal had met with the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. William pulled off a democratic coup there, delivering a message of peace from Israel to the Palestinian leader.

Certainly, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is hoping the trip will be just as successful as William’s recent trip to Pakistan. During the visit, William and Kate made a number of poignant visits. They addressed environmental issues and the wellness and the education of young people during their very first visit to the country.
