Here's Where Kate Middleton And Prince William Are Headed For Their Next Royal Tour

Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 70th year on the British throne with her Platinum Jubilee. The queen, 95, has plenty of activities planned for the milestone, and it all started with a heartfelt statement about her special anniversary.

"As we mark this anniversary, it gives me pleasure to renew to you the pledge I gave in 1947 that my life will always be devoted to your service," Elizabeth said in her Accession Day message, per the official royal family website. "This anniversary also affords me a time to reflect on the goodwill shown to me by people of all nationalities, faiths and ages in this country and around the world over these years. I would like to express my thanks to you all for your support. I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me," the queen added.

However, because of the queen's advanced age, and her recent health issues, she won't be able to visit any of the other countries that have been so good to her over the years. Instead, she's sending the senior members of the royal family in her place as a way to connect with some of those nations, per People, and Prince William and Kate Middleton are stepping up in a big way.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are taking on more royal responsibilities

According to People, Prince William and Kate Middleton will embark on a royal tour to the Caribbean. In March 2022, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend time in Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas, in honor of the queen's Platinum Jubilee — all countries in which Queen Elizabeth II serves as head of state. The Cambridges will visit their destinations, interact with the public, and celebrate the queen's record-breaking 70 years as monarch.

During their trip, they'll find out how the Caribbean countries have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and advocate for the causes closest to their hearts, including mental health and environmental issues. However, William and Kate won't be the only royals heading out to honor the queen's milestone anniversary.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will visit Ireland on March 23 for a brief three-day visit in the name of the queen. Meanwhile, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, will spend time in Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines in April. That same month, Princess Anne will also make her own trip to Papua New Guinea to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

It seems that the royal family is banding together in honor of the queen's 70th anniversary on the throne, proving that they are still united after two years of scandal and struggles within the firm.
