UK Royals to travel to Poland

Royal family

George and Charlotte steal the show to Prince William and Kate Middleton on their arrival in PolandOnce again, the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton are cracking the entire planet. In Germany they are due to visit the Berlin Holocaust Memorial.

Though Prince George and Princess Charlotte have been in the spotlight since birth, the two siblings were a little camera shy as they departed the private plane with their parents.

Perhaps the penultimate event of the royal tour will be when William and Kate take their competitive streak to the water as they captain crew boats in Heidelberg.

They will also tour the site of Gdansk's shipyards, that in the early 1980s became the first independent labour union in a Soviet-bloc country and gave rise to an anti-communist social movement that greatly contributed to the fall of communism. It is the third tour for Prince George, who turns 4 this month, who accompanied his parents to Australia and New Zealand in 2014 as a toddler.

For this visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, first to Poland and then to Germany starting today will inevitably be judged in the context of Brexit.

William and Kate's royal tour itinerary revealed!

Shortly after touching down, the family were escorted to Belweder Palace, about a 20-minute drive away from the airport, where they were greeted by Poland's President Duda and his wife, First Lady Agata.

During their meeting, George and Charlotte stayed with their nanny, Maria Borrallo, at Belvedere Palace.

They will visit the Warsaw Rising Museum, dedicated to the 1944 Polish uprising to liberate Warsaw from German occupation during World War Two.

On Monday evening, Prince William will make his only public speech during a formal dinner in honour of Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Łazienki park, while the British ambassador to Poland will read a letter from the British monarch.
