“The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to this tour and are delighted with the exciting and varied program 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,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace revealed.
“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,” he added. The siblings traveled with their parents as they embarked on a royal tour of Canada last September.
The royal couple confirmed the exciting news through a Kensington Palace spokesperson back in March. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make an official visit to Poland and Germany this July at the request of The Foreign and Commonwealth Office,” the statement said at the time.
And recently, further details have been revealed about this upcoming trip! On Tuesday, June 13, Kensington Palace shared the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their kids will travel to Warsaw, Poland, on Monday, July 17. During their trip to Poland, they will also visit the city of Gdansk.

After Poland, the royal family will travel to Germany. There they will go on a tour of Berlin, Heidelberg, and Hamburg. They will finish up their trip and return back to London on Friday, July 21, just in time for little George’s fourth birthday!
This will mark Kate’s first trip to Germany and the couple’s first time in Poland on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. It’s believed the parents-of-two will meet with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, during their visit.
It’s also expected William and Kate will catch up with Polish Prime Minister, Beata Szydlo, and pay their respects at the concentration camp Auschwitz. Political commentators claim the royal tour will help solidify England’s ties with Europe in a post-Brexit climate.
The Cambridges recently went to Paris for a two-day tour in March. The trip to France marked the first official royal visit by the couple to the country since the untimely death of William’s mother, Princess Diana.
Will was just 15 years old and his brother, Prince Harry only 12 years old when Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997. She was 36 years old.
While the tour was the Duke and Duchess’s first official visit to Paris, William had previously traveled to Paris on a handful of unofficial trips.
