Usually at this period of pregnancy, women go on maternity leave and are engaged in their own health. But not the wife of the Crown's heir. Duchess of Cambridge, which is waiting for the third baby in April, will make the official visit to the Scandinavian countries on the 8th month of pregnancy. Her husband will accompany her, of course, but they will go apparently without children.
The couple of Dukes plans to visit Sweden and Norway on an official visit in February
William and Catherine plan to visit
northern monarchs at the end of January. On 30 and 31 January, they will be in
Stockholm, on 1st and 2nd February - in the capital of Norway Oslo. Yet the
representatives of the Kensington Palace name only the dates. They specify that
details of the visit will be announced later.
The royal experts assumed that since the couple will travel to Sweden and Norway in the coldest time of the year, they would undoubtedly inspect sports facilities in Holmenkollen, Oslo. There is a ski jump, the oldest Ski Museum in the world, and a biathlon track, where one of the Biathlon World Cup stages takes place every year.
Scandinavian trip is really budding and long awaited
By the way, earlier many observers noted that Windsors rarely visit their close relatives - the royal family of Norway. In 1984, Princess Diana went to Oslo on her first solo tour and was accepted by the future king – in those days Crown Prince Harald and Princess Sophie.
Since then, the countess of Wessex in a company of her husband, Prince Edward is usually present at various family events of the Norwegian royal family (weddings, anniversaries, etc.)
Recall: Prince William himself visited the
Scandinavian countries last time in 2004, as a student of St. Andrews
