Ready the royal carpets! Kate Middleton and Prince William will be making their first trip to India together next spring, Kensington Palace announced via Twitter on Friday, Nov. 13.

“It will be the first time The Duke and Duchess have visited the country,” the palace tweeted. “Further #RoyalVisitIndia details will be announced early next year!”

Middleton, 33, and William, also 33, most recently visited Scotland to take part in the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival in Dundee, Scotland.

There, they revisited the University of St. Andrews, where they first fell in love as college coeds back in 2001, and stayed at the nearby five-star Old Course Hotel.

“The Duke and Duchess spent last night in St Andrews, where they first met @univofstandrews,” the Kensington Palace Twitter handle tweeted, along with a throwback photo of the pair.

This will be the royal couple’s fourth major overseas tour together but unlike their trip to Australia and New Zealand in 2014, where Prince George, now 2, made his first major public appearances, the little prince and his sister, Princess Charlotte, 6 months, will not be accompanying their parents to India.

William’s parents, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, previously visited India in 1992.
