Prince William and Kate Middleton have given fans a rare peek into the inside of the royal plane as they embark on a tour of the Caribbean.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Belize yesterday at the start of their eight-day trip, which will also see them visit Jamaica and The Bahamas.

In a post on Instagram, they shared a picture, taken from the cabin of the RAF Voyager, of them disembarking after their 11-hour flight.

The plane was specially converted in 2016 for use by the Royal Family, as well as the prime minister and government ministers, for official overseas travel.

The Queen is given first refusal of the plane's use, however her last trip abroad was to Malta in 2015 – and these day she often travels on her royal train within the UK.

Captioning the image, the duke, 39, and duchess, 40, wrote: "Arriving in Belize, the first stop of our Caribbean tour!"

They also shared a picture of them greeting Belize's Governor General Froya Tzalam, as well as other images from their first day of the visit – which is to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

Royal fans left more than 202,000 'likes' on the photos, with many commenting that they were "excited" to see the tour unfold.

Many social media users also praised the duchess' stylish outfit, which comprised a cobalt blue lace peplum dress by designer Jenny Packham.

The mother-of-three also wore £400 cobalt blue heels from Emmy London and jewellery previously belonging to the late Princess Diana.

She finished off her look with a clutch bag in a matching shade and wore her hair in a half-up style.

The royal couple have travelled to the Caribbean without their children – Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.
