Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will visit the U.S. in December, the U.K. announced Friday.

The visit is scheduled to last between Dec. 7-9, and there’s no word yet on whether their son Prince George will make an appearance.

The couple last visited the U.S. in 2011 on a trip to California, not long after their wedding. The purpose of the new trip is to promote their charity, United for Wildlife, which aims to protect endangered species.

They are both expected to visit the 9/11 museum in lower Manhattan and attend an NBA game. And while the Duke makes his way to conservation events in Washington D.C., Kate, who is expecting the couple’s second child, will remain in New York and visit a child development center with Chirlane McCray, wife of Mayor Bill de Blasio.

And since there’s nothing like experiencing new things in foreign lands, the pair will attend a gala dinner for the 600th anniversary of their alma mater, Scotland’s University of St. Andrews, on their final night.
