Prince William and Kate Middleton just announced some very exciting news

Here's what we know...

The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, but while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spend the most time in front of the cameras, it’s their children that really steal the limelight.

From Princess Charlotte’s signature sass and Prince George’s cheeky grin to their royal waves when meeting their brother, Prince Louis, these toddlers never fail to make news. And judging by Trooping the Colour, it looks like Prince Louis is following after his royal siblings.

This weekend however, it was Prince William and Kate Middleton who made news, as they announced exciting plans  of their future royal tour.

The destination of choice? Pakistan.
