Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton will likely bring Prince George, who is about 14 months old, with them when they visit New York City next month.
Reports this week have indicated that the royal couple will visit the Big Apple for their new wildlife charity. It will also be the first-ever trip to New York City for Kate, who is a few months pregnant with their second child.
The two will also bring Prince George, according to The Daily Mail, which first broke the story, saying the couple will be in the city for three days. “It seems likely the couple will take 16-month-old Prince George on their tour of Manhattan,” the paper said.
Kate has been dealing with intense bouts of morning sickness–something she experienced when she was pregnant with Prince George–limiting her ability to do public events.
“Kate was upset she had to cancel her tour of Malta, but now she is over her morning sickness and really excited about America,” an insider told Daily Mail.
It adds that Middleton has been waiting to visit New York since she was a girl. “Kate has never been to New York and she is really looking forward to it now that she is over her illness,” said a source to the paper.
A spokesperson for the World Wildlife Fund said, “We will be in New York to talk about our Wildlife Crime Project, which is why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are involved.” They’ll be in the city to talk about illegal poaching and their charity, United For Wildlife.
Meanwhile, a palace spokesperson said that any “overseas visit will be announced in the usual manner in due course.”
It was also reported a few weeks earlier that Kate would have to miss the New York City trip due to her morning sickness.
“It had been thought that it might be just for him but then she missed Malta,” a source told People.
If she is able to go and support him and show her support for an overseas trip, then it might be on.”
