The Simple Reason Prince William Won't Be Visiting Princess Diana's Death Site During His Paris Trip

Prince William and Kate Middleton will embark on a two-day trip to Paris on March 17. While it hits particularly close to home given the fact that it's the same city where Princess Diana died in a tragic car accident nearly 20 years ago, the royal couple will not be making any public visits to any of the locations associated with her death. Will and Kate have been sent to the French capital by the British Foreign Office to build a relationship between Britain and France just as their country is gearing up to leave the European Union after last year's Brexit vote. The focus of their trip is more about shaking hands rather than remembrance. They will then follow up their Paris trip with a tour of Germany and Poland in July. No word on whether Princess Charlotte or Prince George will join them.
