Princess Charlotte is soon going to embark on her very first royal tour overseas. Although her 3-year-old brother, Prince George, has traveled with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on official tours to Australia and New Zealand in 2014, this will be the first time his sister will accompany her parents.
15-month-old Charlotte will be joining her father, Prince William, and mother, Kate Middleton, on a tour to Canada in September, US Weekly reports. Her first official overseas trip is scheduled to take place at the end of next month and will last eight days, Vogue’s UK website reports.
A source close to the royal family told US Weekly, “There will be parts of the itinerary designed to include the children. The climate will be comfortable and a lot of outdoor activities will be part of the trip.”
The royal family will also be traveling with their entourage that includes nanny Maria, hairstylist Amanda Cook Tucker and numerous members of their security team. The family will be flying first class on a commercial flight rather than a private jet.

Of course, there will be plenty of shutterbugs present to take snaps of Princess Charlotte on her first official trip. Give than that the Princess will be traveling on a commercial flight to Canada and that she and her brother will be part of several outdoor activities, the paparazzi will certainly get ample opportunities to click pictures of the brother-sister duo.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson said, “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.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton admitted to missing their children while they were on a trip to India earlier this year.
