Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, will make an “official visit” to Norway early next year, according to a brief announcement Tuesday from Kensington Palace in London. The couple has been invited by Norway’s King Harald V.

The dates for their visit haven’t been set yet, according to palace officials in Norway. State broadcaster NRK noted that British spokespersons said the couple will “undertake an official visit to Norway and Sweden … in early 2018.”

Kate, who’s pregnant with the couple’s third child, has been largely out of the public eye recently but NRK noted how she took part in an event stressing the importance of mental health at Buckingham Palace last week. On Monday, she and both Prince William and his brother Prince Harry met representatives of organizations they support, during another event at Paddington Station. staff
