Prince George & Princess Charlotte Have Arrived In Canada!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived in Canada ahead of their week-long tour, stepping off the plane with an adorably colour co-ordinated Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The young Royals landed in Victoria, B.C. at around 9am AEST to great applause; greeted by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Kate, wearing a maple leaf brooch, carried Charlotte while William helped George down the steep flight of stairs.
Both tots managed a little wave as they disembarked, although, The Mirror reports, Prince George seemed to be more than a little distracted by a Sea King landing behind them.
This is, of course, the first time we've had a glimpse of Charlotte since the family stepped out at the Trooping the Colour in May, and the 16-month-old is looking more and more like her mum every day!
Soon after disembarking the family were whisked off to Government House, where they'll be staying during their visit, before William and Kate set off for the first leg of their whirlwind tour.
The Toronto Star reports that the Duke and Duchess will be following strict Royal protocol on this visit; that means no selfies, although a "nice, firm" handshake is encouraged.
George and Charlotte will be looked after by their nanny, Maria Borrallo, while their parents are otherwise engaged, but, with 36-acres of grounds, a waterfall and a fountain with rubber ducks to play with, will be kept entertained at the state residence.
