Be forewarned: The following information may stir within you a totally irrational desire to start researching last-minute airfare deals to Germany and Poland. Why? Because there, you might just get a smile and nod from Prince George or a sweet little dimple-fingered wave from Princess Charlotte.
Much was made last year of the duo traveling to Canada with their Duke and Duchess of Cambridge parents, William and Kate — sporting impeccable outfits and flashing irresistible grins, they instantly charmed the entire country.
Even when little George rejected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s high-five attempt, it was pure preciousness. (Although we gladly volunteer as tribute if George needs a stand-in for Trudeau encounters in the near future.)
So now that Kensington Palace has confirmed George, 3, and Charlotte, 2, will be accompanying Mum and Dad for their royal duties this summer in Germany and Poland, everyone will undoubtedly be keeping their fingers crossed for a sighting.
Of the visit, which will take place July 17 through 21, the palace says the Cambridges are “very much looking forward” to the trip and that the public can expect to see sweet Will and Charlotte “on at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week.”
According to Elle, the itinerary begins in Warsaw and Gdansk in Poland before weaving through Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg in Germany. Will and Kate will be rubbing elbows with local business leaders and government officials, as royal ambassadors are wont to do, but they also aim to spend a portion of their time during the trip meeting young people and entrepreneurs.
As for George and Charlotte’s agenda, we can only assume it consists of a task in which they are highly specialized: being royally cute.
