Despite the fact there was no mention of the Duchess of Cambridge joining her husband, many hoped that the glamorous royal would be visiting the Middle East, too.
It’s been a busy few months of travel for the royal family. Kate and William left children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at home last month for a five day tour of Pakistan.
Meanwhile, it was also announced last month that Prince Charles will spend his birthday without Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in India, where he will spend two days, November 13 and 14. The couple will be reunited when they head to New Zealand together later in the month.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also recently completed a tour of South Africa.
