Kate Middleton and Prince William to visit Germany and Poland in July

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the royal couple will tour the two European countries in July, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The announcement didn’t mention whether Prince George and Princess Charlotte will accompany their parents.

The family-of-four marked their first royal tour together last September when they visited Canada.

This month, the couple will make a two-day visit in Paris, on March 17 and 18, for various engagements.

The trip will mark the couple’s first official visit to the French capital since Princess Diana’s death in August 1997.
