Back in their kingdom!
On Tuesday, September 27, the newly minted Prince and Princess of Wales are set to take a trip to their namesake nation, their first visit to the country since the Queen’s passing earlier this month.
Seemingly a part of their vow to focus on “deepening the trust and respect of the people of Wales over time,” as one palace official recently explained, Prince William and Kate appear to have a jam-packed schedule during their excursion. The pair is set to stop by their home in Anglesey, North Wales, where they will meet several locals, before heading south to Swansea in South West Wales.
While in the northern part of the nation, Prince William and Kate will spend a day at the seaside in Holyhead. After visiting a local lifeboat station and meeting those who both work at the locale and individuals who were previously rescued by the team, they will stop by the Holyhead Marine and Cafe Bar. Here, they will meet with small business owners and workers as well as others with sea safety-related jobs.

Part of this localized approach falls in line with way the two aspire to fulfill their duties “in the modest and humble way they’ve approached their work previously,” according to the same anonymous palace source.
This is particularly pertinent for Kate, who is the first person to use the Princess of Wales title since Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.
Kate, according to the source, “appreciates the history associated with this role,” they said, seemingly referencing Princess Diana’s legacy as “The People’s Princess.” Yet even with this admiration, Kate “will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path,” the palace insider continued.
