GUWAHATI, March 7 - Duke of Cambridge Prince William and his wife Princess Kate Middleton will pay a two-day visit to Assam starting from April 12.
Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has directed the State�s Chief Secretary to take all steps so that the Britain�s popular Royal couple go back with fond memories of the State and its rhino habitat Kaziranga National Park (KNP), a government release stated today.
The Chief Minister also wished that the State�s historical connection with the British people through its oil and tea industry be showcased during the couple�s visit to KNP.
