She may have just turned one this past May, but Princess Charlotte is already planning to embark on her very first international trip. This September, she will join the rest of her royal family as they tour Canada for eight days.
This trip marks the first time William, Kate, George and Charlotte will travel overseas as a family, although by now, young George is a seasoned traveler. He accompanied his parents to Sydney and New Zealand back in 2014, so this jaunt to Vancouver is bound to be a breeze for the three-year-old prince.
In case your knowledge on the British colonialism is a bit rusty, Canada is in fact a part of the Commonwealth. So George and Charlotte will be overjoyed to see the face of their great-grandmother on the country’s colorful currency.
“The Duke and Duchess hold very happy memories from their visit in 2011 – their first overseas tour as a married couple. They are really looking forward to seeing other parts of this beautiful country and having the opportunity to meet many more Canadians along the way,” a spokesperson from Kensington Palace said. We’re sure that Charlotte and George are just as ecstatic to visit the land of maple syrup and hockey.
According to US Weekly, plenty of child-friendly activities have already been planned, including quite a few outdoor ones. The family is set to travel in style, on a commercial jet, with nanny Maria in tow, in addition to hairstylist Amanda Cook Tucker.
While we can’t wait to see the official pictures from this forthcoming trip, we’d love to see an unofficial one: Princess Charlotte’s very first passport photo.
