Feb 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Although the bus was mostly full of curious natives, and members of the press, a bus tour of the life of princess-to-be Kate Middleton took off during this past weekend, to show places where the future wife of British Prince William grew up.

It is obvious from the tour that the childhood of Kate Middleton was anything but ordinary. Organized by the tour company ‘Morton Travel’, tourists are shown the childhood homes of Middleton, as well as her former schools, the church she was baptized in, and the ‘Old Boot Inn” where she and Prince William have frequented.

According to the owner of the bus tour, Adrian Morton, the tour was originally focused on regular customers from the town, but then they were informed that people from all over the world were interested. He told Reuters, “We wanted to do something for our local clientele, just as something to do in the early part of our year as an excursion. It was then picked up by people in the press and it sort of snowballed from there really.”
