Because they still can . George will be in school in a few weeks and that puts and end to traveling during school time .

It's also relatively close to the U.K and the travel in country is not that far so the kids can stay in Warsaw and Berlin while their parents go around to other cities and then come back unlike the India Bhutan tour where everyone was moving from stop to stop.

fantastic trip so far! william and kate are looking great. kate's outfits have been very appropriate and interesting. i loved the evening dress she wore by the polish designer, which was edgy and very different from what she usually wears. the erdem top and skirt today was also super feminine.

interesting to see so many body guards presence in the videos though. seems that poland takes their security very seriously, as i have never seen so many of them so close to WK.

Catherine’s style is spot on for this trip. I also really like her shorter hair, but would like to see it even a bit shorter, with perhaps a side sweep?

Anyhow, she seems to look nervous/worried in a number of the shots. She seems somehow more anxious than she usually does I public appearances. I wonder if it’s just general anxiety with regard to all of the unrest going on worldwide? Regardless, she does look pretty and regal.

And, of course, the kids are adorable. I think I remember One of her parents commenting that Charlotte puts George in his place . She does seem to be the more outgoing of the two.

'Katemania' is sweeping Warsaw as thousands line the streets of Gdańsk to cheer and wave the Royal couple.

Dense crowds held up Union flags, children stood on window ledges to get a better view, and a sea of camera phones filled the air with arms stretched out to snap Kate and William.

Youngsters were pictured standing on railings as they lined the streets with their eager parents, waiting for the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their visit to the Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre on the second day of their three-day tour of Poland.

Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited a former concentration camp as they continue their tour of Poland.

They described their visit to Stutthof as "shattering", saying the site is a "terrible reminder of the cost of war".

The Royal couple met five Holocaust survivors at the camp near Gdansk, where 65,000 people were killed by the Nazis in World War Two.

The five-day tour of Poland and Germany will see the Cambridges also visit Gdansk, Berlin and Heidelberg.

Day three will see Their Royal Highnesses bidding farewell to Poland, before beginning the German element of the tour in the capital, Berlin. The Duke and Duchess will start the day's engagements with a private meeting with Chancellor Merkel. This will be The Duke’s second meeting with the Chancellor; they first met during his trip to Düsseldorf last year. Following this Their Royal Highnesses will visit the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s most famous landmark and a symbol of German unification. The Royal couple will say hello to crowds gathered on Pariser Platz in front of the Gate, before making their way to the Holocaust Memorial. Here they will tour the museum before walking through the Memorial itself.

The afternoon will see The Duke and Duchess travel to the eastern district of Marzahn. They will visit Strassenkinder, a charity which supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, including homeless children. In the charity’s youth club, Their Royal Highnesses will spend time with some of the young people who have received help from the charity, as well as meeting individuals from the Robert Enke Foundation. Set up in memory of the footballer, this organisation raises awareness of mental health issues, particularly in sport.The Royal couple will then return to the west of the city, and meet with President Steinmeier at the Bellevue Palace. That evening, Their Royal Highnesses will attend a Queen’s Birthday Party held in the gardens of the British Ambassador’s residence. The Duke of Cambridge will give his second speech of the tour during this reception.

It's wonderful that so many people turned out to see the couple on the Polish leg of their visit. I'm sure they appreciate the very enthusiastic and warm reception!

I'm glad that William and Catherine visited a concentration camp whilst they were in Gdansk. It's important that they visited such a place so that the atrocities of the Holocaust can be remembered and highlighted by their visit. I particularly like this photo of Catherine with one of the survivors - Catherine is a very genuine individual; she was really engaging in conversation with the survivors and they seemed to find it easy to talk to her; judging by their facial expressions.

The children are so cute but I agree it would be lovely to see them in different styles.

Back on topic, the visit appears to be going very well! Kate seems to be so good at making people feel comfortable talking to her!
