LONDON — Kensington Palace officials say Prince William will make an official visit to China and Japan early next year.

Officials said Thursday that William will spend roughly three days in each country. He is expected to travel in late February.

William's wife Kate, who is pregnant, is not expected to accompany him.

The palace says William will begin his trip in Japan where he will promote trade relations and cultural exchanges and also work to combat illegal wildlife trade.

In China he plans to visit Shanghai, Beijing and other cities.

His grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, visited China with her husband Prince Philip in 1986.
