The Duchess of Cambridge has been tipped to travel abroad twice in 2014.
New mother Kate will join Prince William on at least two overseas tours next year, according to royal editor Robert Jobson.
“She is expected to make at least two foreign visits alongside her husband next year,” Robert told the Evening Standard.
Due to Kate’s pregnancy, the popular royal couple did not travel abroad this year although it is widely expected the couple will travel to Australia and New Zealand in the new year.
The new parents are to follow in the footsteps of William’s parents, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, who travelled to Australia in 1983 on a six-week tour when he was just nine months old.
Earlier this year, at the Anglesey Show, William told an Australian couple he and the Duchess were planning a visit down under.
“We’re hoping to go there next year,” the Prince explained.
Since their wedding in 2011 the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have undertaken two official tours visiting Canada and South-East Asia.
The couple have also travelled to Denmark, where they teamed up with Danish royals Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary to visit the Unicef headquarters.
As Kate increases her royal workload, it may be possible she will make trips abroad solo. In recent years, royal wives the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex have made successful trips overseas to represent The Queen.
Earlier this year, Camilla made a visit to Paris, where she made her first French speech and visited the headquarters of Dior.
Similarly, Sophie has most recently visited India and Qatar to see how eye-charity ORBIS help people in disadvantaged areas, and the Countess is to travel to Hong Kong later this year.
