Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are thankfully okay after a earthquake struck 600 miles away

So far, Kate Middleton, AKA the Duchess Of Cambridge, and Prince William have been having a lovely time while on their seven-day tour of India and Bhutan. They’ve been on safari, fed some baby elephants (CUTE!), have had some top-notch cuisine and all- in-all things have been going great.

But the pair were left a little shaken (literally) when they were hit by tremors of a 7.0 earthquake which hit Myanmar, around 600 miles away from the Kaziranga National Park in Assam which they were visiting on Wednesday. Scary, or what!


Thankfully, the Duke and Duchess, as well as the baby rhinos and elephants they saw, were a-okay and there were no immediate reports of death from the epicentre of the quake. Phew!

After spending time in India, Kate and Wills are now in Bhutan where they have been welcomed by the King and Queen of the Orient but haven’t been joined by their two children 11-month-old Charlotte and George, two.


Talking about why they chose to leave Princess Charlotte and Prince George at home for their trip Kate said: ‘Because George is too naughty. He would be running all over the place. Next time we come we will definitely bring them.’ She also said that seeing the village children had reminded her how much she missed her own little ones. Aww, cute.

The two tots are reportedly being cared for by Kate’s mum Carol at Kate’s childhood home in Bucklebury, Berkshire. The children’s full-time nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, is also on hand to help.

No doubt the royal two-some are having the BEST time ever and above all we’re happy the Duke and Duchess are still safe.
