Prince William started his tour by adding the finishing touches to a TV cartoon character Shaun the Sheep in Beijing, which marked the curtain-up of the UK Culture Season.
During his three-day visit, the prince visited the Shijia Hutong Museum in Beijing, a museum in the courtyard house restored by the Prince of Wales's China Foundation and The Prince's Foundation for Building Communities, followed by a quick trip to the Forbidden City.
Prince William attended a campaign held in the Long Museum to showcase British creativity and innovation in entertainment, design, healthcare and fashion. The final stop was Xishuangbanna in Southwest China's Yunnan province where he visited an elephant rehabilitation center and a nature reserve.
