My sources tell me Will and Kate’s next royal tour to Singapore, Malaysia, the Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu will happen September 11 to September 19. An official announcement is coming soon.

I'm surprised it's not set for longer!
The tour they did to North America was longer, and that was just a lark. This is official jubilee business. Very interesting...

How long were the other Jubilee tours?  Perhaps the Queen and her advisors decided to keep all of them relatively short

I hope Kate can handle  a week of work and travel? The travel part I know she can handle, the work part maybe not so much.  bored3

That really is a short trip compared to the Canada/LA tour that was about 2 weeks if I recall correctly.  On this trip, you can knock out two days for traveling, so they're there for 6 days at most.  And, yes, it IS hot there.  Dear heavens, I hope she's smart enough to dress conservatively at all times.  No more tarmac bare bum shots, please.

If the Trip was anywhere near L.A. I'm sure she and Pr.William would have made it into two weeks.  bored3

This is such a bad idea; they are highly conservative over there and why bother since it's not like the Jubilee is something major anyway. It was just the same as any special occasion engagements.

I actually think this trip will be quite an ordeal. It's short, it will be packed with visits, it will be unbearable heat/humidity. It will be out of their comfort zone. I wonder who landed them with this one?

It is out of their comfort zone, but honestly they need to do stuff like this if the monarchy is going to continue. They are the future king and queen; they can't just hide all the time.

Time for William and Kate to feel a little discomfort; the Queen Mother did engagements/tours with massive heatwaves and Diana did as much in Australia while pregnant and shortly after her marriage and I am certain that they should do the same. They spend enough time in the tropics in boiling temperatures and I am certain that a little heat and humidity shouldn't bother them during an engagement.

This is actually kind of fun to wait and see what awesomely awkward remarks WK will have to say to the dignitaries there.  Maybe they have Faberge eggs there so she can show off her history of art street cred.   easter-lol

William's discomfort will probably hard for him to keep off his face when camera's are trained on them for hours. I hope they are getting along for this trip and Pr.William can hide his misery if it arises!  bored3

This tour is about as long as the other Jubilee tours except for Edward and Sophie's Caribbean tour which was about two weeks.  Harry's tour was shorter.  Most of the others have been two or three days - e.g. Charles and Camilla to Canada - although I expect them to have about 2 weeks for their NZ, Australia and PNG trip in November.

Certainly college officials were quietly confident that when Kate and Prince William made their trip on behalf of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to Malaysia, Singapore and the Solomon Islands in September, a royal visit to the school would be included.

However, I hear that those hopes have been dashed. And in Singapore yesterday the blame was being laid at the door of  British officials who were said to have let it be known that the possibility of the Duchess opening a top private school conveyed the ‘wrong image’

For Marlborough College to have its most famous alumna cut the ribbon opening its new state- of-the-art Malaysian school would have been the icing on the cake after its successful campaign to recreate the ethos of its Wiltshire sister college in south-east Asia.

Oh dear, this is not good for her, not good at all.

The British are letting it be known that the Duchess doens't belong around the namesake of the school she attended.

Quote
It was the right decision to not let Kate open the school. She isn't exactly the image any school would want for alumni representation. To spend all that money then go off to university to get a degree and never use it is simply ridiculous. The only degree Kate cared about was her M.R.S., she hasn't even put that to good use. Marlborough is better off playing its' association with Kate low key.

I wonder how St. Andrews feels about Kate being a graduate and having done nothing with her education.

^I sometimes wonder if they just gave Wills and Waity their degrees as it doesn't seem like they've leaned anything from their time at uni.

Royal insiders point out that neither the Duke nor the Duchess have any say on where they go or what they visit on royal tours.

This doesn't make much sense. Didn't we read that Wills was in charge of what he wanted to do on the Candian and Hollywood tour?
