Prince William, Kate and Prince George Jet Off For Tour Down Under

Section: Celebrity Mums

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their eight-month-old son will arrive in New Zealand tomorrow

Prince George is embarking on his first official foreign tour today. Prince William and Kate will be arriving in New Zealand tomorrow to begin their tour of Australasia and will be accompanied by their son and an entourage of 11, including his nanny, Maria Theresa Turrion Borrallo.

On arrival in New Zealand, the royal couple will start their visit in Wellington with a ceremonial welcome including a Maori dance, and inspect a guard of honour. 

George will make his official public debut on Wednesday 9 April when William and Kate attend a reception at Government House in Wellington with new mothers and their toddlers – we’ll be expecting some seriously cute pics of George playing with other babies.

Later in the trip, he's expected to visit a zoo in Sydney.

The fact that George is accompanying his parents on an official tour is reminiscent of Prince Charles and Diana, who took a nine-month-old William to Australia in 1983.

We can’t wait to see little Prince George in action and we’re pretty sure he’ll completely charm all the Aussies and Kiwis!

Right now, with the Duke and Duchess stuck on a 24-hour flight with a small baby, we’re hoping they’ve brought plenty of toys and snacks to keep George occupied and happy.

What are your tips for having a happy flight with a young baby or toddler? Let us know below.
