Prince William has had to abruptly end his Christmas vacation due to a death that required his immediate presence in Kuwait.
According to Hello Magazine, he traveled to represent his father, King Charles, as the two nations, the United Kingdom and Kuwait, maintain close diplomatic relations.
The new Emir of Kuwait, Meshal al-Ahmad al-Sabah, who is the half-brother of the deceased Emir, shares a significant bond with the British royal family. Notably, Emir Meshal al-Ahmad al-Sabah, aged 83, has visited the United Kingdom three times this year, one of which was for King Charles' coronation ceremony.
According to a British weekly magazine, Prince William's journey to the Middle Eastern country was not undertaken alone.
He was accompanied by Foreign Minister David Cameron, indicating the importance of the visit in terms of international relations and diplomatic ties between the two countries.
This unexpected trip underscores the strong connections and mutual respect between the royal families of the United Kingdom and Kuwait.
