Royal visit itinerary released

Prince William, Kate and baby Prince George were invited to visit the Shoalhaven as part of their Australian visit in April. However they will not be visiting the region.

Kensington Palace has released new details of the three-week tour, which will be divided equally between the two countries and take in five Australian states and territories, culminating in the Anzac Day march and commemorative service in Canberra.

Despite being invited to visit this region, the Shoalhaven did not secure a place on the itinerary.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were invited to visit the Fleet Air Arm Museum, have an overnight stay on the waters of Jervis Bay at HMAS Creswell and take a tour of Coolangatta Village.

For several parts of the tour the couple will leave George behind in the care of a nanny, including during their two-day trip to Uluru and when they visit Adelaide.

They arrive in Sydney on April 16 and head straight to the Sydney Opera House for a reception, before they take a boat across the harbour to Admiralty House, which will be their base for the Australian leg of the tour.

They will visit the Blue Mountains to meet families affected by the October fires, and will also take in some sightseeing in the area.

The trip also includes a lifesaving display in Manly, and a visit to the RAAF base at Amberley on a one-day trip to Brisbane.

On their final day, Anzac Day, they will attend the march and commemorative service at the Australian War Memorial.

Though the itinerary does not specify chances for meeting members of the public, many of the days will include an opportunity for bystanders to see the duke and duchess up close - at the Opera House, for example. The Queen has had to give special permission for the two heirs, William and George, to travel on the same flights.
