Kate Middleton Cancels Overseas Tours To Focus On Royal Baby

Kate Middleton and Prince William will not be touring overseas for the rest of the year, so they can spend as much time as possible with their new baby in July. 

Their principal private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton told The Mirror yesterday that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be focussing on their family for the rest of 2013 and and that their tour schedule will be “assessed” later in the year.

He said: “I’m not anticipating the Duke and Duchess taking on overseas tours because of her baby.”

It’s thought that Kate will take a period of maternity leave after the birth and Prince William won’t undertake any tours alone.

Once he’s completed his RAF duties as a search and rescue pilot in September, he’ll spend as much time as possible with the new arrival and the pair will visit any countries as a couple – possibly with the baby – in 2014.

Next week they’ll head to Glasgow on a tour of Scotland. On the 4th and 5th of April, the royal couple will visit the Emirates Arena to watch cyclers, netball, and badminton. They’ll also tour a facility that helps young homeless people and launch a new initiative which will inspire and train young sports coaches.

Make the most of them before July, guys… RM
