Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will accompany their parents on their trip to Canada at the end of the month. George, who is three, and Charlotte, now 17 months old, were widely expected to travel with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge after the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, extended an invitation to the whole family. Today, with twelve days to go until take off, their presence has been confirmed.
The revelation that Kate, William, George and Charlotte would be visiting as a family came as Kensington Palace tweeted out more details of the official tour, beginning with the news that all four would be arriving on September 24th. It will be Charlotte's first overseas tour - George accompanied his parents to Australia and New Zealand in 214.

The tweets also confirmed that the first full day in Vancouver will include visits to some of the city's important projects and that the last full day of the tour will be spent at projects linked to mental health issues, continuing William and Kate's work on Heads Together.
No more details of when or where George and Charlotte will make their appearances have been given but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said they were looking forward to introducing their children to Canada. It's going to be some tour.
