Royals To Visit Everywhere In 2012

Senior royals will visit the Queen’s 15 realms (nations where the sovereign is head of state), major Commonwealth countries, and other destinations with close links to the UK next year. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s trip to Malaysia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu on behalf of the Queen is likely to attract the most interest. Tuvalu has not had a major royal visit in decades and William and Kate are likely to bring the tiny South Pacific islands to a standstill. When the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh (pictured) toured the remote nation in 1982, they were carried shoulder high by islanders into the capital Funafuti as they sat in canoes. Funafuti? Evelyn Waugh couldn’t have topped that one. God, you can’t make this shit up.
