Guwahati: Duke of Cambridge Prince William and his wife Princess Kate Middleton will pay a two-day visit to Assam starting from April 12.

Assam 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 on Monday.

 

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.

Gogoi noted that it was former Viceroy of India Lord Curzon who had declared the area which the present Kaziranga National Park occupied as a reserved forest to protect its treasure of flora and fauna.

The royal couple had announced that they would be visiting Agra in India and will go see the iconic Taj Mahal.
