Duchess of Cambridge reveals plans to visit Kenya

Thursday November 3, 2011

After successfully drawing attention to famine-hit East Africa, the Duchess of Cambridge has revealed plans to visit the region.

As she helped pack emergency supplies to be shipped to Nairobi during a visit to Copenhagen's UNICEF global crisis centre, Kate mentioned the subject to an aid worker.

Isaac Maina (pictured), who is from Kenya said: "The Duchess told me they are going back to Kenya soon."

A royal source told the Daily Telegraph: "A visit to Africa is certainly something the couple are considering.

It may be some time before they could fit it into their schedule, but it certainly isn't being ruled out."

One possibility is that the couple could fly to Africa next June after the Queen's Diamond jubilee.

Prince William is expected to take part in the Safariacom Marathon on the Lewa Downs in Kenya to raise money for the Tusk Trust, of which he is patron.
