Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set for 2014 royal baby tour?


Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly planning to go on a 2014 royal baby tour.

William and Kate are said to have arranged a trip to Australia and New Zealand with their baby next year.

An insider told Us Weekly magazine, "The trip is planned for Australia and New Zealand."

Should they embark on such a jaunt, they’d be following in the footsteps of William's late mother, Princess Diana, after she and Prince Charles took William Down Under when he was just nine months old in 1983.

William and Kate ? who’s due to give birth to the little one on Saturday ? could also use the time to thank former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard for the baby gift she made for them.

The 51-year-old politician ? who was axed as PM last month ? has been busy knitting a red kangaroo toy for the duke and duchess' impending arrival.

She recently said, "In terms of knitting for Kate's baby . . . I just thought that it would be a cute project to work on. I thought I would set myself the challenge of knitting a little stuffed toy, and why not a kangaroo?"
