It is the first time in 13 years that a member of the British royal family has visited the country and the trip is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were the last royals to pay a visit back in 2006.
Previously, Queen Elizabeth II visited in 1961 and 1997 while Princess Diana travelled there on a solo trip back in 1991.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s last official royal tour took place in January 2018 when the couple visited Sweden and Norway.
Prince William has since undertaken solo trips to the Middle East, France and New Zealand.
In the meantime, royal fans will be pleased to learn that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are busy preparing for their first royal tour of South Africa.
The family-of-three will kick-start the 10-day trip in Cape Town on September 23 with plans to conclude in Johannesburg on October 2.
