Prince George demonstrated he has the right stuff to be King today, showing a promising mastery for one so young at the art of the royal wave as he arrived with his mother Kate Middleton, father Prince William and sister Princess Charlotte at the Canadian city of Victoria this afternoon.
The blonde three year old, smartly dressed in a navy blue sweater, shorts and his customary knee-high socks, stole the show as he greeted the waiting media – who had been waiting on the tarmac for several hours behind a cordon - with enthusiastic and unabashed semaphore.
The family landed shortly after 4pm local time (7pm EST) and were greeted by a group including Canadian prime minster Justin Trudeau, and his wife, Sophie.
Kate was wearing a blue Jenny Packham dress with a matching hat by Locke and Co, and the Queen’s maple leaf brooch.
Princess Charlotte, making her first public appearance as a toddler, wore a dress of pale blue and was carried in her mother’s arms.
The royal family will be touring Canada for the rest of the week, returning back to the U.K. a week from today.
The presence of the two youngest royals on the Canada tour, looks set to make the tour a headline grabbing royal PR exercise.
