Britain’s Prince William to Visit Kuwait and Oman in December

The Kensington Palace recently announced that the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William will be visiting Kuwait and Oman between December 1 and December 4 this year on the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. 

Further details about the visit will be announced in due course. 

Prince William isn’t going to be the first royal to visit Kuwait and Oman, although he has been to the Middle East region before where he got a chance to bond with the heir to Jordan’s throne, Prince Hussein bin Abdullah. The Duke of Cambridge’s father, Prince Charles has visited both Kuwait and Oman previously in 2016 alongside his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall during a three-nation royal tour of the Gulf. It was an official visit on behalf of the British Government to promote the UK’s partnership in the region.

What’s more, the British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II alongside Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh also visited Oman in 2010 where she was seen off by Sultan Qaboos Bin Saeed. During that visit, the Queen and Sultan Qaboos talked about numerous significant issues like methods for boosting bilateral relations, and other provincial and worldwide issues. Prior to that, Queen Elizabeth visited Oman in 1979 when she cruised on board the royal yacht Britannia.
