This afternoon, Kensington Palace announced that William and Kate will visit India next spring. The details are sparse, but we do know George and Charlotte will not be joining their parents for the trip. Instead, the children will stay home with their nanny and grandparents Michael and Carole Middleton. We’ll find out further details in the New Year.
