Exciting royal announcement - William and Kate to visit Bhutan this year

Exciting royal announcement  - William and Kate to visit Bhutan this year

Next week, Prince William and Kate will fly to India and Bhutan for a seven day visit that will highlight the complexities and contrasts of modern-day India, demonstrate wildlife conservation efforts and reveal the spiritual beauty of the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

Details of their packed itinerary have now been published and will include a star-studded Bollywood party, a game drive at Kaziranga National Park, an archery competition and a walk up to the famed Taktsang Monastery. Along with royalty and dignitaries, William and Kate will meet slum dwellers, entrepreneurial youngsters and charity workers. Their trip will end on the 16th April at the Taj Mahal – recalling memories of Princess Diana’s visit to India 24 years ago.

Royal visit announcement - 8 January

Kensington Palace announced today that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan this spring. Although few details have yet to be released, it is known that they will visit the young king and queen of Bhutan - Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Jetsun Pema Wangchuck. Their visit may even coincide with the arrival of the first royal baby in Bhutan with the queen due to give birth in the springtime.

The two royal couples should have lots in common. They both married in 2011 and are both treated as celebrities by the media and their many admirers. In fact, the 35 year old Dragon King of Bhutan is something of a pin-up in Asia, with an army of female fans, whilst the queen is seen as something of a fashion icon. Sound familiar!

We’re looking forward to sharing further news with you in the coming weeks and letting you know how you too can follow in the footsteps of Kate and Wills on a regal holiday to Bhutan.

Helen enthralled a sell-out audience with stories, anecdotes and fascinating details of the time she spent training and aboard the Russian space station back in 1991. Helen is pictured here with our MD, Steve Berry, one of the three founders of Wilderness Lectures.
