British royals awaited in Poland at start of a EU visit

Royal family

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children arrived in Poland on Monday, on the first leg of a goodwill trip to two European Union nations that is meant to underscore Britain's friendly ties with a bloc that it's in the process of leaving.

But William and Kate will also experience modern-day Poland, meeting with young entrepreneurs at the top of a Warsaw skyscraper and also tour the new Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre. The first was a year ago when the family of four spent eight days travelling around Canada's Pacific coast.

On Monday, Prince William arrived in Warsaw, Poland alongside his wife, Kate Middleton, and their handsome children. His two-year-old sister, on the other hand, held tightly to their mother before offering a little wave as she approached the media waiting on the tarmac.

For this visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, first to Poland and then to Germany starting today will inevitably be judged in the context of Brexit.

A Kensington Palace spokesman has said: "The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to this tour and are delighted with the exciting and varied programme that has been put together for it".

They will visit the Warsaw Rising Museum, devoted to the bloody 1944 Polish uprising to free Nazi occupied Warsaw in World War Two. And this evening, the Royals will also attend the Queen's Birthday Party, which is being hosted by the British Ambassador at Orangery in Łazienki Park.

'They have decided that their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will travel with them and we expect the children to be seen on at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week, ' they added.
