She did go to New York while pregnant with Charlotte. If she's starting to return to duties, a visit to Scandinavia in November isn't too outrageous. I'm suspecting she's close to 13 weeks pregnant.

And because they were in Denmark for a short trip in 2011.

More on the visits to Finland, Norway and Sweden:
It's all over the news here in Norway - the main story on TV2 News Channel with Royal Expert Kjell Arne Totland in the studio.

Tweets from Richard Palmer:

Richard Palmer‏ @RoyalReporter
The Duke of Cambridge will visit Finland November 29 and 30. He and Kate will tour Norway and Sweden in early 2018, Kensington Palace says.

Richard Palmer‏ @RoyalReporter
Both overseas visits are at the request of Britain's Foreign Office. We had expected William and Kate in Scandinavia next month.

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter
The palace had originally planned for William and Kate to make a four or five-day visit to all three countries in late November.

Richard Palmer‏ @RoyalReporter
Kate's illness has forced a change of plans. I'm told there's no possibility of her going to Finland even if she is better by then.

Article from the The Press Association for the DF and other british news outlets:
William and Kate to visit Norway and Sweden in 2018 | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to make an official visit to Norway and Sweden next year.

Kate, who is expecting her third child, will be well into her pregnancy when she makes the trip early in 2018.

Kensington Palace said the couple had been asked to undertake the Scandinavian visit on behalf of the Foreign Office.
Article from Richard Palmer:
Kate Middleton suffers morning sickness hell: Pregnant Duchess forced to cancel trip | Royal | News | Express.co.uk
Quote:
She and William had been due to spend four or five days touring Norway, Sweden, and Finland but Kensington Palace has decided she is not well enough to undertake the tour at the request of the Foreign Office.

Instead, William, 35, will make a two-day visit to Finland on November 29 and 30 and the couple have postponed their visit to Norway and Sweden until early 2018.

It was not possible to postpone the trip to Finland until next year, as the main official reason for going is to celebrate Finland's centenary year as a nation.
Blog post from Kjell Arne Totland with quotes translated by me:
William og Kate til Norge! | Kongebloggen - Kjell Arne Totland
Quote:
Earlier this year, the duke and duchess was on a so-called "charm offensive" in Poland and Germany in connection with Brexit. And probably also the visit to Norway has been planned to strengthen relations between our two countries - and perhaps also to promote new bilateral agreements.

It belongs to the story that William and Kate brought both their children to Poland and Germany. So maybe we'll see George and Charlotte in Norway too...

Currently, no date or program is available for the visit, but one thing is for sure:

This will be great - and I'm already looking forward to it!

I’m glad the visits to Sweden and Norway has been pushed to early 2018. That give time for Catherine to be able to attend. She’s determined not to miss that trip.

I don't expect the children to accompany their parents on their trip.

There is a week off in mid-Feb for half term, and then around 3-4 weeks from latest onwards

Ther than the fact that the trip has been rescheduled, do we have any information that would suggest that she is determined to attend ?

Neither do I.


Article from Aaftonbladet with quotes translated by me:
https://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/a...r-till-sverige
Quote:
''Yes, we can confirm that an official visit is planned, says Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department of the Swedish royal court.

It is not yet decided exactly what the visit will contain.

But there is planned a meeting with both the King and Queen and the Crown Princess couple,'' says Thorgren.
See posts 171 and 173 for more information on the visits.

That'll be a good photo op with the Swedish couples. I'm strangely excited because I normally could care less.

The Norwegian royal family announced that both the Duke and Duchess are planning to come.

Furthermore, the previously scheduled trip to all three countries is now split up into two separate trips of which William will do one (Finland) and the other two countries (the two monarchies!) are being postponed until early next year to be carried out by both of them.

If they would want to play with a Swedish prince and princess they could visit Madeleine, Chris and their children in London - they live only a few miles from each other (if I am not mistaken).
