Prince William and Duchess Catherine's five-hour hike

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake a five-hour trek during their upcoming trip to Bhutan.

The couple will climb to the temple of Paro Taktsang, otherwise known as Tiger's Nest, widely regarded as the most spiritual place in the whole of Bhutan and they can't wait.

A representative for Prince William and Duchess Catherine said: "It is a magical place that The Duke and Duchess are thrilled to be visiting. The trek will allow them to get a real sense of the natural and spiritual beauty of the country."

William and Catherine will spend seven nights in India and Bhutan later this month and are planning to use Skype to keep in touch with their children, Prince George, two and 11-month-old Princess Charlotte, who will remain in the UK with their nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo.

Sarah Dixon, a maternity nurse who has worked with friends of the couple, said: "They will keep in touch with Skype, and I'm sure Maria will do a diary for them while they are away with pictures and photos, any moments they might have missed. She will know that while they are away, the parents need extra reassurance."

And Catherine's mother Carole Middleton will also be around to ensure that the children are ok.

Sarah added: "I'm sure that Granny is on call as a back-up. Two under three is incredibly difficult."
