William and Kate announce plans to visit the Taj Mahal

The Duke of Cambridge is set to follow in his late mother, Princess Diana's, footsteps at the conclusion of his upcoming tour of India -- with his wife, Duchess Catherine, by his side.

Kensington Palace announces Friday that Prince William and Duchess Kate will visit the landmark 24 years after Princess Diana made the same trip in 1992 just before news of her separation from Prince Charles came to light.

William and Kate will take a tour of India, culminating with a visit to the Taj Mahal, before heading to Bhutan. The tour begins April 10 in Mumbai then heads to New Delhi and Kaziranga. They plan to reach the Taj Mahal on April 16.

William and Kate "are very much looking forward to their tours of India and Bhutan. Their visit to India will be an introduction to a country that they plan to build an enduring relationship with," a Palace spokesman said in a statement. "They will pay tribute to India's proud history, but also are keen to understand the hopes and aspirations of young Indian people and the major role they will play in shaping the 21st century."
