The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been invited to visit China next year.

According to reports today, the Chinese government has extended an invite to the royal couple to visit the country in 2015.

Kensington Palace has not yet commented on the invitation, but sources have claimed Prince William is likely to travel alone as his wife Kate will be heavily pregnant at the time of the proposed visit.

Kate is due to give birth to the couple's second child in April.

The duchess' schedule has been kept tightly monitored since her second pregnancy was announced earlier this year as, once again, she has been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarium, a severe form of pregnancy sickness.

The condition saw her hospitalised while pregnant with Prince George, now one, in 2012.

Palace officials have said they are monitoring Kate's public engagements on a "case by case basis" although it was recently confirmed that she will travel with William to the US in December, suggesting she is on the mend.

William and Kate will fly into New York on 7 December and stay for two days, during which time they'll conduct various public and private engagements, including an anniversary dinner for their old university, St Andrews, and a visit to the 9/11 Memorial.

William will also spend a day in Washington DC.

Their son George is not expected to travel with them.
