Can we come?
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
As Prince Harry gets stuck into his first official role during a state visit, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be packing their suitcases and getting ready to head off on their next royal tour.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to embark on a trip to Poland and Germany later this month, and following the success of their Canadian tour last year they’ll be taking their adorable two children with them.
Prince George might be getting ready to start school in September, but before he dons his new uniform he will be jetting off with his sister, Princess Charlotte. They will join their parents on the week-long stay in Europe, and we have to admit – we’re really looking forward to the incredibly cute pictures to come.
The Duke and Duchess are expected to arrive in Warsaw, Poland on Monday 17th July before heading to Gdansk, and then Germany. While there, they will stop off in Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg before returning to London on July 21st.
Jason Knauf, the Communications Secretary for the William and Kate, said: ‘The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to this tour and are delighted with the exciting and varied programme that has been put together for it.
‘They have decided that their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will travel with them and we expect the children to be seen on at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week.
‘They look forward to a busy and impactful tour and are grateful that they will have the opportunity to meet the Polish and German people – such important friends of the United Kingdom – as a family.’
The trip was at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and considering the couple have already spent a couple of days in Paris this year many are convinced that the Duke and Duchess are working to keep relations strong between the UK and Europe post-Brexit.
Perhaps they could also have a word with Cadbury about their diminishing chocolate bars as a result of the Brexit referendum?
Once they’ve cleared up the more important matters, of course.
Just a thought.
