Damn it! Don't you Windsors ever have an off day?! What do they put in the royal water in England?

Just kidding. We don't care what they put in the royal water to make William, Kate, George and Charlotte so stinkin' photogenic. We can't get enough of this foursome, and we are not ashamed of it.

The family is currently traveling together during a five-day tour of Poland and Germany, marking their second tour all together (you guuuuuuys, how can we not love them?). They touched down at Warsaw Airport today at 1:45 p.m. local time, and the cuteness was epic.

Kate toted Charlotte (in a red and white floral dress, a sweet nod to Poland's flag colors) on her hip, while Prince William hung onto Prince George's hand. Prince George looked a little less than impressed with all the fuss, but kept his thoughts to himself.

During the stroll across the tarmac to the VIP terminal, Princess Charlotte worked her teeny-tiny royal wave in the direction of the press. (And everyone was knocked dead from the sudden impact of cuteness. OK, no, everyone lived. But still.)

As for Kate, well, she was resplendent in a white Alexander McQueen skirt suit with beige heels and a ruby necklace. Like you expected anything different from our favorite grown-up princess. (Er, duchess. Brits, just make her a princess already, OK? This duchess stuff is silly.)

Prince William wore a dashing red tie as his salute to Poland, but Prince George opted for a red, white and blue plaid shirt and his signature English schoolboy knee-length shorts, the rebel.

The first stop on the Poland trip? A pop-in to the Presidential Palace where they will be hosted by President Andrzej Duda and first lady of Poland Agata Kornhauser-Duda (who was all over the papers last week after a video appeared of her possibly maybe kind of sort of dissing President Trump's attempt to shake her hand).

Also on the agenda: a trip to the Warsaw Rising Museum, dedicated to Polish resistance fighters who lost their lives during the uprising of 1944 seeking to free Warsaw from German occupation.

The family will also visit with young Polish entrepreneurs at a tech marketplace and enjoy a garden party in Lazienki Park topped off by a speech by William.

Whew. That would be a lot for anyone to accomplish in a day of sightseeing, let alone a family with two very tuckered-out baby royals. But Kate and William are committed to sticking together during this summer tour as much as possible. In July, they released a statement via spokesperson: “They have decided that their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will travel with them and we expect the children to be seen in at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week."

Slow, proud clap for the royal family for their incredibly modern — and incredibly relatable — family tripping.

The foursome will head to Germany on Wednesday, and we are looking forward to seeing what ensembles they come up with. Black, red and gold might be a tougher palette to pull off.
