As part of an official two-day visit, Prince William and Kate Middleton jetsetted to Paris this weekend after the St. Patrick’s Day parade in London. This marked the first visit by the Prince since his mother Princess Diana’s death in 1997.
The royal couple visited French president François Hollande’s home at The Élysées Palace. In the evening, they dined with England’s ambassador to France at the official residence.
On Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went to Les Invalides military hospital where they learned the history about the site as well as meeting war veterans and victims of Bataclan and Nice terror attacks. Followed by a walk through the Impressionists gallery at Musee d’Orsay and posed in front of the famous giant clock. Inside the museum, they were also shown other Monet masterpieces.
To top off their jam-packed itinerary, they also played rugby with local children outside of the iconic Eiffel Tower, and attended a Six Nations rugby match with young French leaders. They said au revoir to the City of Light via a private jet.
