Royal couple declines Shoalhaven invitation

THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George will not visit the Shoalhaven as part of their Australia-New Zealand tour in April.

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 the region, the Shoalhaven did not secure a placeon 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.

“While it is disappointing that the Shoalhaven has not been included in the upcoming Royal tour, our invitation certainly remains open to the Duke and Duchess,” Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash said.
