Kensington Palace has just announced that Prince William will be making a solo visit to Kuwait and Oman next month. The four day trip, planned at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, is scheduled to take place on 1 - 4 December 2019, and will see Prince William travel to the region without the company of his wife, Kate. Further details regarding the Duke's full itinerary are yet to be announced.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge most recently returned from a successful visit to Pakistan, where they visited several symbolic locations including Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Chitral, connecting with locals and embracing Pakistan's rich culture. The five day royal tour marked the Cambridge's first-ever visit to the South Asian country.

The couple's next official appearance together is scheduled for Saturday 9 November, where they will attend the Festival of Remembrance and the Remembrance Day service at the Palace of Whitehall. The Duke and Duchess will be joined by fellow royal family members, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
