"The Prince and Duchess are deeply touched by the invitations from the Sovereigns of Norway, Sweden and Denmark to visit their countries and to celebrate with them Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee. Throughout their tour, Their Royal Highnesses will be supporting a wide range of shared national interests from military co-operation, commercial opportunity and tackling social exclusion. In Norway, Their Royal Highnesses are greatly looking forward to renewing close family ties between our two Royal Families as well as engaging with youth leaders, and recognising military service and research excellence. In Sweden, the royal couple are very much looking forward to spending time with Their Majesties as well as having the opportunity to visit one of Europe’s largest youth centre and to promote Anglo-Swedish trade links. In addition, The Duchess is particularly keen to discover more about the Swedish education model. In Denmark, The Prince and Duchess are delighted to be guests of Her Majesty and the Prince Consort and to have the opportunity to recognise our countries’ shared work and sacrifice in Afghanistan as well as celebrating our strong commercial and cultural links."
