During the week-long trip, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas. While the trip saw some controversies, the Duchess of Cambridge maintained her composure as she completed the tour with a cheerful smile on her face.
However, royal expert Katie Nicholl says these tours are often a “wrench” for Kate and there is always one thing about them she finds difficult – leaving her children behind.
For their journey to the Caribbean, their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis stayed at home.
Ms Nicholl told Closer magazine: “I remember being with her when we were on a tour together in Bhutan [in 2016, when Princess Charlotte was just 11 months old] and we had a moment to talk about how difficult it was to leave little children behind.
“Despite being the Duchess of Cambridge and being able to afford around-the-clock nannies and so on, she had her mum looking after Prince George and Princess Charlotte, which struck me as just really normal.
