The British Royal Family released pictures from Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh’s visit to Malta in 1949.
The Duke of Cambridge will be visiting the country representing the Queen on the occasion of the country’s independence day; Malta gained independence from Great Britain on 21 September, 1964. The Duchess of Cambridge was originally suppose to attend this event but had to cancel due to her pregnancy.
The Duke is expected to meet with the President of the country, Marie Louise Coleiro Preca and will also visit national library to see letters from Henry VIII and George II.
