The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Warsaw’s Chopin airport yesterday morning as they begin a five-day visit which will see them undertaking a variety of engagements, including events relating to the complex 20th century histories of each country, and opportunities for the Royal couple to meet young people, from entrepreneurs, to mental health campaigners, and bright young talents in music and the arts.. The couple were accompanied by their children Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, two.
It took some coaxing from his father to convince Prince George to emerge from the private plane that brought the popular royal family to the Warsaw Chopin Airport on Monday to start their official five-day tour to charm Poland and Germany.
It cannot be easy for a little boy, who will be four years old next Saturday, to face all the adults of the welcoming committee awaiting them in line at the bottom of the stairs, and the wall of photographers, cameramen, and journalists taking pictures at every step.
“His Royal Shyness!” the Daily Mail declared in a headline to explain the fact that the little prince clung from his father’s hand and needed some encouragement to proceed with their walk on the red carpet laid for them on the tarmac.
His little sister Princess Charlotte, who descended in the arms of her mother, on the other hand, was all smiles and waves.
“George fidgeted, swinging his right leg backwards and forwards before wrapping it around his left as William smiled and shook hands, while Princess Charlotte was feeling anything but camera shy in her mother’s arms,” the Mail reported.
Two-year-old Princess Charlotte was wearing a floral dress twinned with red shoes and white socks, while George wore his trademark navy shorts, with a checked shirt.
Impeccable as always, the Duchess of Cambridge was dressed in a white peplum dress created by one of her favorite designers, Alexander McQueen, and pale pink suede high-heel shoes.
“For Prince George and Princess Charlotte such trips are a novelty but, as the future of the British monarchy, they’ll one day become a way of life,” the BBC predicted.
The family of four was greeted by Britain’s ambassador to Poland, Jonathan Knott, and his wife, as well as by Poland’s ambassador to Britain, Arkady Rzegocki.
