Quite right Osipi.

It wasn't that kind of tour, so there were no family based engagements and no one would expect that there would be. Given that, I just wonder would the children have been better off in their own home environment with Maria, rather than in strange surroundings and for the most part without their parents. William and Kate's engagements would have take up the majority of their time, the whole point of the tour after all.

I think both behaved very well given their young ages, but they are very young, just now maybe a bit too young to be Brexit ambassadors.

When seen from the perspective of the children themselves, I would imagine that they'd feel much more comfortable seeing their parents at least once a day than going for what would seem like an eternity without seeing Mummy and Daddy while the parents were on the tour.

It all kind of fits in with what we, ourselves, remember as children. It seemed like millions of years before we would be grown up and could do the things that grown ups do but once we did reach being a grown up, time flies by way to fast for our liking.

A poster in the children's own thread suggested that perhaps George had been asleep on the journey to Poland and saw the crowds when he woke up and didn't feel up to it because he was still tired. I think this was probably the case since both George and Charlotte looked quite sleepy when they were leaving Germany yesterday too. George is still young and therefore still has time to develop his character - and different children have different personalities so George may well be more introverted than his little sister.
That photo--I had seen it before but hadn't noticed that was William behind George. I often see resemblances to his cousin Peter or his mother, amongst other relatives, but in that photo I see a bit of his Uncle Andrew.
Helicopters and planes seem to be high on the list of George's favorite things. He was over the moon.

Interesting; I've never made a connection to Andrew before. To me George looks like Catherine and a young William, as well as Diana's brother Charles - there's a documentary about the late Princess of Wales on television right now here in Britain and there were clips of Charles Spencer as a child and he really did look like his great-nephew.

I don't think this story was posted during the tour. The Salvation Army do great work.

Quote:
A REPRESENTATIVE of The Salvation Army's anti-human trafficking team in Poland met with Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – more widely known as Prince William and Princess Catherine, the future British King and Queen. The meeting happened during the royal couple's tour of Poland and Germany, at a garden party in Royal Łazienki Park, Warsaw, to mark the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
