Duchess of Cambridge set for solo visit to Luxembourg on behalf of government


The Duchess of Cambridge is to make another solo official foreign visit on behalf of the Government.

She will visit Luxembourg on 11 May to attend the commemoration of the 1867 Treaty of London.

The treaty confirmed Luxembourg’s independence and neutrality.

The visit marks a significant development in Kate’s royal career. Her first solo visit was to Holland in October last year.

Her visit to Luxembourg is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and will be seen as another example of the royals being used by the Government to improve relationships with European countries post-Brexit.The Duchess and Prince William recently returned from an acclaimed overnight visit to a Paris.

And Prince Charles embarks of a whistle stop tour of Europe – Romania, Italy, The Papal See and Austria – along with the Duchess of Cornwall as Article 50 is triggered.

The Royals have always been used as super envoys – touring the world promoting British culture and trade links.

But the Foreign Office is understood to be keen to use their brand to bolster British interests and secure good relations with key European countries once Brexit is triggered.
