Hello! relays the details shared about the the tour that is to take place early next year, noting that “The royals have been asked to undertake the Scandinavian visit on behalf of the Foreign Office,” and adding that William will take a solo journey to Finland next month.

The publication notes that the November trip William is embarking on was originally supposed to involve Duchess Kate as well. However, her severe sickness meant that the tour was postponed, leaving the original tour date as the solo adventure for the Prince.
