The Cambridges on Tour: the details so far....

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are off on holiday. Mum and dad are taking them along for the five day visit to Germany and Poland which takes place between 17th and 21st July 2017. And we've now got some more details of what William and Kate will be doing during their European trip this summer. The Cambridges are on tour - here's what we know so far.

Day One, July 17th 2017, Warsaw

Day one, July 17th, will be spent in Warsaw where William and Kate get an official greeting from the President of Poland and his wife before visiting a business hub for young entrepreneuers called The Heart. The evening sees them at the Orangery in Lazienki Park for a celebration marking the Queen's birthday. The family arrive in Poland on noon on day one - expect children juggling on plane steps.

Day Two, July 18th 2017, Warsaw and Gdansk

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit the site of the Stutthof Concentration Camp on July 18th where it's believed up to 65,000 people died during World War Two. William and Kate are meeting survivors there. Day two also sees the royal couple travel to Gdansk where they will take part in a street market and then head off to the Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre. There will also be time to visit the shipyards and see the European Solidarity Centre before they return to George and Charlotte in Warsaw at the end of day two.

Day Three, July 19th 2017, Berlin

The third day of their visit takes the royals to Germany where their tour kicks off in Berlin. There's a private meeting with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and a trip to the Brandenberg Gate as well as the promise of a walkabout. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then visit the Holocaust Memorial and tour the museum there. The afternoon sees the royal couple in the district of Marzahn to visit organisations supporting young people including the Robert Enke Foundation which helps those dealing with mental health issues. Day three will also see them at the Bellevue Palace to meet recently elected German President, Franz-Walter Steinmeier, before heading to the British Embassy in Berlin for another Queen's Birthday Party.

Day Four, July 20th 2017, Heidelberg and Berlin

Day four, July 20th, sees William and Kate in Heidelberg which has been twinned with Cambridge since 1965.  The couple are to visit the German Cancer Research Centre before heading to the city centre for more market life and some local food. Then it's competitive Cambridge time as William and Kate head out on the water for a 'friendly' rowing race. Back in Berlin that evening, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are attending a reception at the Clarchens Ballhaus for leading names in art, culture and technology in the city.

Day Five, July 21st 2017, Hamburg

The final day of the tour, July 21st, takes the royal couple to Hamburg where they will visit the Maritime Museum and celebrate the UK-German Year of Science. Next it's a trip to the Elbphilharmonie, one of the biggest concert halls in the world, for a special young people's performance. There are kids, there are musical instruments - will we also see George and Charlotte joining in? The last stop on the tour might keep the Cambridge children happy too. The final destination is Airbus where a royal tour of the company's base is on the agenda before home beckons and the Cambridges head off into the sunset. Four royals, five days, plenty to talk about.
