LONDON, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Prince William and wife Kate Middleton will visit the Taj Mahal as part of their upcoming trip to India and Bhutan.

Embarking on the six-day trip in April, the couple will finish their tour of the two countries at the iconic landmark 24 years after Prince William's mother, Princess Diana, did the same.

Kensington Palace announced the trip Friday, noting the two royals will visit the business hub Mumbai, the capital New Delhi, the Kaziranga National Park and Agra, where the Taj Mahal mausoleum is located.

In Bhutan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will meet the nation's king and queen to maintain relations with the royal family.

"This tour, coming shortly before The Queen [Of England's] 90th birthday, will also allow The Duke and Duchess to pay tribute to Her Majesty's huge contribution to diplomacy in Britain and the Commonwealth," a palace spokesman said.

William and Kate are expected to travel without their two children, George, age 2, and Charlotte, 9 months.
