Kate Middleton and Prince William are embarking on a nine-day tour to the South Pacific islands, during which the Duke of Cambridge will finally see an orchid named after his late mother, Princess Diana.
It was announced today that Kate and William will attend an orchid naming ceremony at the Singapore Botanic Gardens where the orchid dedicated to Princess Diana has been preserved.
In 1997, William's late mother was killed in a car crash, before she could visit the orchid.
“The Duke and Duchess will be shown an orchid named after Diana, Princess of Wales which the late Princess never had a chance to see in person," said the Duke of Cambridge's Private Secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinketon, according to Telegraph.
“It was named shortly before she died and the intention was for the Princess to see it at some point.”
Kate and William are representing the Queen in this Far East trip, in which they will visit Singapore, Malaysia, Borneo, the Solomon Islanda nd Tuvalu.
This Diamond Jubilee tour will mark the first speech of the Duchess of Cambridge outside of England. In a hospice in Kuala Lumper, Malaysia, Middleton is scheduled to speak on her experiences at her charity East Anglia's Children's Hospices in the UK, reported The Mirror.
The royal couple's trip will end on the South Pacific island, Tuvalu, which is the fourth smallest country in the world.
Most of the Diamond Jubilee tour's stops were chosen personally by the Queen, according to The Daily Mail.
The trip, which includes some journeys into the wilderness, could pose the fashion icon Kate some serious challenges.
"She will need up to 30 different outfits, including one for a trek to the jungle," said The Daily Mail.
Some shiny moments too?
"The Queen is believed to be lending her several pieces of jewellery including, possibly, one of her favourite tiaras."
Duchess' hair will be taken care of by a freelance hairdresser who will travel with the royal duo.
