William and Kate are following in the steps of  Meghan Markle  and  Prince Harry  who visited Dublin shortly after their royal wedding in 2018. Last year,  Prince George ’s parents traveled to Northern Ireland for a royal visit. At the time, the Cambridges’ two-day trip was kept under wraps due to security reasons. While in Belfast, the couple jumped behind the bar, where Kate pulled a pint of beer at the Empire Music Hall Belfast.

Aside from Ireland, the Duke and Duchess are expected to travel overseas to Australia for a tour in the wake of the bushfires, according to  HOLA! USA ’s sister brand  HELLO!  . Last month, the couple wrote that they were “shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the fires that are destroying homes, livelihoods and wildlife across much of Australia.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and communities who are affected by this devastating event,” William and Kate continued. “We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have tragically lost their lives, and the brave firefighters who continue to risk their own lives to save the lives of others.”
