It has been an announced that our favourite royal couple will spend two days in the French capital next month. Prince William and Kate Middleton will visit Paris on the 17th and 18th March as part of an official royal engagement, and the timing is pretty poignant.

This August marks the twentieth anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, and this will be the first time William has revisited the city since the tragic accident. While Prince Harry has visited Paris in recent years, William’s first visit is set to be an emotional one.

The full itinerary for the couple’s official visit has yet to be released, but The Daily Mail reports that they will attend a Six Nations rugby match, a formal dinner at the French embassy, and a reception for young French leaders. It has not been specified if the royal couple will travel with Prince George and Princess Charlotte in tow.

The visit comes following the news that Princes Harry And William plan to commission a statue in Kensington Palace to celebrate their mother’s life and mark two decades since her death.
