Kate Middleton is reportedly jealous of Prince William’s upcoming trip to Africa.

During Prince William’s trip to Windhoek on Tuesday, he gave a speech at a British High Commissioner’s reception. “I am delighted to be visiting Namibia for the first time. I am only sorry my wife Catherine is not able to join me. She is immensely jealous, particularly as I am looking forward to a few good, uninterrupted nights of sleep this week away from my wonderful children,” he said.

Middleton won’t be joining her husband on his trip to Africa next month because she will still be on maternity leave by then. The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her son, Prince Louis, on April 23.

Prince William announced that his upcoming trip to Namibia will be focused on conservation.

“This is an issue very close to my heart, and I know is a matter of deep pride to you all as well,” he said during Tuesday’s gathering.

Other than this, the Duke of Cambridge will also be taking on a number of engagements during his trip at the request of Queen Elizabeth II’s government. On Monday, he met with the country’s Vice President Nangolo Mbumba to discuss anti-poaching efforts. Prince William also held meetings with the country’s Deputy Minister of Environment and Tourism Bernadette Jagger. He also met up with the Minister for Environment and Tourism, Pohamba Shifeta, according to Town & Country.

On Thursday, Prince William will have a discussion with Magufuli in Dar es Salaam, the president of the United Republic of Tanzania about the issue of illegal wildlife trade. Later in the week, the dad of three will also visit the First Battalion the Irish Guards Battlegroup who are currently training in Kenya.

Prince William’s trip to Africa marks the first official royal visit to the country since the Queen’s trip in 1991. Prince William is also joining the engagement as the patron of Tusk and United for Wildlife, two conservation groups.
