There have been reports that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning to take a foreign royal tour next year with their two children. Royal watchers are already looking forward to seeing Prince George and Princess Charlotte on their first foreign country outing together. However, a recent report indicated that Prince William and Princess Kate’s adorable son and daughter will unlikely to join them for the royal tour.

According to People, the two year old Prince George and nearly four month old Princess Charlotte would likely have to wait awhile before they can embark on their first trip together with parents outside of the U.K. The magazine stated that it is “not expected that the royal children would be with their parents on any foreign visit in the near future.”

People mentioned that the itinerary of royal tours is normally based on suggestions from the British Foreign Office and that “there will be a consideration of the government to take into account too.” The magazine also cited that the royal couple has been busy adjusting to their new life as a family of four, along with Prince William still relatively new to his job as an air ambulance pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.   

For the 2016 royal tour, it is rumored that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit the Caribbean sometime during the first quarter of next year. Prince William and Princess Kate already visited several countries and cities during previous royal tours, such as Canada, Los Angeles, New York, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  

The royal couple even brought Prince George during their April 2014 New Zealand and Australia royal visit. The then nine month old baby reportedly stole the show, stated Hello!magazine, when he was seen in the arms of his father as they boarded the plane after the New Zealand tour.

However, People has reported that the royal parents will unlikely to travel to a faraway place, and that the travel duration would be shorter than the 2014 three week tour. This will reportedly make it easier for Prince William and Princess Kate to leave their two children while they travel.
