The destinations were chosen by The Queen for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, which underlines the importance that Her Majesty attaches to these significant nations in South East Asia, and their relationship to the United Kingdom, and to two of Her Majesty’s Realms in the South Pacific.

The visits formed one of a number undertaken by Members of the Royal Family to Her Majesty’s Realms and to Commonwealth nations during the course of the Jubilee year.
