Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince William and Kate Middleton will not be visiting Cork on their trip to Ireland in March.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake their first official visit to the Republic of Ireland between Tuesday, March 3rd and Thursday, March 5, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Despite the fabulous time had by the Queen and both Prince Charles and Camilla on separate visits to Cork in recent years, however, the younger Cambridges will only spend time in Dublin, Meath, Kildare and Galway.

“During the three-day tour, The Duke and Duchess will learn about local organisations working to support and empower young people and projects which provide opportunities to help them develop important life skills.” reads a statement from the Palace.
“Their Royal Highnesses will also hear more about Ireland’s conservation initiatives and efforts to protect its environment, with a particular focus on sustainable farming and marine conservation.
“Throughout the visit, Their Royal Highness will meet a broad range of people, including the President, the Taoiseach and senior political leaders, children and young people, and those working in the creative arts, business and charity sectors.”
Guess we can cancel the brass band then.
