The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, with their three adorable children stealing the limelight on a regular basis.

Yes, from Princess Charlotte’s signature sass to Prince George’s cheeky grin and Prince Louis’ hilarious first birthday portraits, the miniature royals never fail to make news.

But it was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge that got people talking this week, as they announced their exciting travel plans.

Yes, now that Prince Louis’ first birthday is out of the way, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are off on an official engagement, announcing that the destination will be North Wales.

‘The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit North Wales on Wednesday 8th May to meet individuals and organisations in the region who are encouraging people to look after their communities and protect the natural environment,’ Kensington Palace announced in a statement. ‘In North Wales, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will first visit the Caernarfon Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter Base.’

The statement continued: ‘Until 2015, search and rescue operated out of RAF Valley on Anglesey, where The Duke worked as an RAF search and rescue pilot between 2010-2013. From Caernarfon, Their Royal Highnesses will travel to Anglesey to visit Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt, a thriving local business which has been operating for over two decades, and won @TheQueensAwards for Sustainability in 2017.’

Is this a subtle hint that the royal baby will have arrived by then? We certainly hope so!
