Over in the Bahamas, the Cambridges will go around a number of islands and experience a world-famous junkanoo parade.

William and Kate have asked to meet as many local people as possible, the palace said.

A Kensington Palace spokeswoman added: “Their Royal Highnesses are very much looking forward to the visit, which will be their first joint official overseas tour since the onset of Covid-19 in 2020.”

It will be their first overseas tour as a royal couple since the beginning of the Covid pandemic two years ago.
