Unless you just haven’t been keeping up with all things royal, you are well aware that Prince William and Kate Middleton just recently wrapped up a tour of Pakistan. Judging from the pictures, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared to have a fantastic time, and it looks as if the locals greatly enjoyed having them there.
Prince William and Duchess Kate are not the only ones who just completed a royal tour. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are just back from a 10-day trip to Africa, where they visited four countries and looked to be having the time of their lives. However, they did not make the trip all by themselves. In some of the cutest pictures that we have seen, they proudly brought along baby Archie Harrison, who at times, seemed to be the star of the show.
So, did Prince William and Duchess Kate do the same and take along Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis on their tour of Pakistan?
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s tour of Pakistan
What did the future king and queen do while they were away? It certainly wasn’t all rest and relaxation, as they kept busy visiting schools, and interacting with local dignitaries.
According to Vanity Fair, Prince William and Middleton spent their time speaking about how events in Pakistan affect security in the United Kingdom, with the couple speaking about the importance of the relationship between the two countries. They also engaged in a game of cricket and took the time to speak about climate change and education.
Naturally, Duchess Kate and Prince William honored Princess Diana while they were in Pakistan by visiting some of the same places that the late princess did when she was in the country. They went to children’s hospitals and as we would expect, Middleton paid tribute to her late mother-in-law with several of her outfit choices.
Did Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte go on tour with Kate Middleton and Prince William to Pakistan?
The Cambridge kids were back at home in London, busy attending school during the week while their parents were abroad. So, why didn’t the little ones get to go?
According to Express, it was due to security concerns. Although royal fans in Pakistan were hoping to catch a glimpse of the young royals, they stayed behind since the tour was so complex with political tensions that are currently happening. While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are well prepared in handling such a situation, the children are not. Kensington Palace confirmed the best decision was for them not to go.
Who looked after Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were away from home?
Prince William and Middleton may have been gone for several days, but that doesn’t mean that the children were not well taken care of. According to People, the kids were being watched by their nanny as well as by Duchess Kate’s parents: Michael and Carole Middleton.
Prince Louis is quite used to this, as he has never been on a royal tour before. That said, his older brother and sister — Prince George and Princess Charlotte — have.
Chances are, they had lots of fun, as they are extremely close to their maternal grandparents, although that didn’t stop them from missing Prince William and Duchess Kate. The royal parents reportedly made sure to call their children on the phone each night before bed so they could talk to them before going to sleep.
