Couple are embarking on royal tour

Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly banned journalists from asking them about Prince Harry during their next official engagement.

Kate and Wills, both 30, are heading to South East Asia in September on behalf of the Queen as part of her Diamond Jubilee Tour.

But questions about the recent wild antics of Wills’ younger brother Harry, 27, will not be allowed.

‘Journalists who are travelling on William and Kate’s trip have been sternly warned that questions about Prince Harry are out of the equation,’ a source tells Radar Online.

‘This is a royal engagement, a 9-day trip that has been organised by the Queen for her grandson and his wife, who are keen to pay tribute to her life of dedication and service.

‘It was set up to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Because of its importance, the Palace has said that anyone that quizzes William and Kate about Harry’s naked escapades in Las Vegas will be sent home.

‘He’s a topic that is off limits.’

The tour, which starts in Singapore on 11 September and moves onto to Kuala Lumpur and Borneo, will offer the couple a wide range of experiences.

They’ll trek through the jungle, attend a glitzy dinner and even get dressed up in the traditional clothing of locals for some events.

Kate and Wills’ private secretary tells the Daily Mail: ‘We have really no idea what to expect.’
