After enjoying drinks with soldiers and their families at the Irish Guards' barracks, William and Kate made their way to Paris.

French President François Hollande greeted them upon their arrival to France, and tonight, the royal couple will attend a black-tie dinner at the British Embassy.

It's the pair's first official trip to Paris, which is also where William's mother, Princess Diana, died nearly 20 years ago in a car crash.
