Prince William and Kate Middleton are coming to Australia to visit bushfire ravaged towns

Prince William and Kate Middleton are expected to travel to Australia to tour towns ravaged by the bushfires.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, talks have been underway between the federal government and Kensington Palace for weeks.

Both William and Kate are said to be keen to visit the people and see the recovery process for themselves. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were among the many of the royal family who issued personal statements in January after seeing footage of the devastating bushfires across the country. 


While no details have been recieved, it is thought that the Prime Minister Scott Morrison has extended an official invitation for the royal couple to come to Australia and talk to locals, firefighters and officials to find out how well the recovery process is going.

They are also expected to tour animal and wildlife sanctuaries. 

The couple will not bring their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis with them on the long trip across the world, but the couple are expected to spend up to a week here.

Prince George is the only one of their children to have visited Australia when he came with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2014.


Prince William also travelled it to New Zealand in April last year in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque shootings.
