Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge are scheduled to embark on an Indian adventure.

Prince Harry is expected to visit Nepal for the first time, while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be visiting Bhutan in the spring, also for the first time, the young royals announced on their social media accounts.

Bhutan is an impoverished country situated between China and India on the east end of the Himalayas. The primarily Buddhist country is guarded when it comes to tradition and culture, essentially secluding itself from public eye. It's also known as the "happiest country in the world," with a Gross National Happiness index that includes an emphasis on psychological well-being, health, time use and education.

Though William, Kate and Harry have not been to these destinations before, the royal family are no strangers to the Himalayan countries. Prince Charles and Prince Andrew have previously visited Bhutan, while Princess Diana and The Queen made visit to Nepal in the past.

This spring's tour will be the first royal tour the Duke and Duchess have taken following the birth of Princess Charlotte in May. While the royal couple did bring a nine-month-old Prince George with them to Australia in 2014, The Standard UK reports that it is unlikely the young prince and princess will be accompanying their parents on the upcoming trip.
