Royal tots join parents on diplomacy tour

By Tony Jones

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were greeted by rain when they arrived in Poland with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the start of their parent's European tour.

The royal children flew in a private chartered plane with William and Kate, before touching down at Warsaw Chopin Airport.

At the bottom of the steps waiting to greet them was Jonathan Knott, Britain's ambassador to Poland and the diplomat's Polish counterpart in Britain Arkady Rzegocki.

The trip, which will also take them to Germany, is another milestone in their royal lives as it is the first time they have been on an official tour of Europe.

William and Kate's trip, taken at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, is likely to be seen as another Brexit diplomacy tour, as the UK prepares to leave the EU.
