The royal couple will meet survivors of the Bataclan and Nice attacks. The trip comes just after Prince William faced a media backlash for missing a Commonwealth celebration to take a skiing holiday with friends. It will be the Duke's first official visit to the French capital since his mother Princess Diana's death, in 1997. He was 15 and his brother Prince Harry was 12 when she was killed in a car crash in the city almost 20 years ago. Kensington Palace said the trip was at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
