Prince George, Princess Charlotte set off on Brexit diplomacy

The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge

Too cute! After Poland, the foursome will be heading to Germany for a visit.

During the Poland and Germany tour the youngsters will only be seen during arrivals and departures.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are clearly hyped to be overseas with their parents as they couldn't stop checking out the scene (below) as they deplaned their aircraft.

The young royal family's trip - taken at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office - is being seen as another Brexit diplomacy tour in a bid to strengthen the UK's relations with Europe as it leaves the EU.

The royal couple will be in Poland together with their two children, four-year-old George and two-year-old Charlotte.

Despite all eyes being on George and Charlotte, it was hard to ignore the duchess' incredible outfit by one of her go-to designers, Alexander McQueen. She carried Charlotte in her arms and expertly navigated the plane steps in her favourite nude high heels, while William held onto three-year-old Prince George, who at first seemed reluctant to disembark from the plane.

Polish President Andrzej Duda, First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda, the Duchess of Cambridge (in Alexander McQueen) and Prince William.

They will visit the Warsaw Rising Museum, devoted to the bloody 1944 Polish uprising to free Nazi occupied Warsaw in World War Two.

At each location, they will meet survivors of these periods.

"Their Royal Highnesses will take time during the tour to acknowledge the complex 20th century history of each country", Kensington Palace tweeted, adding that they "hope to meet as many people as possible during the tour".

The appearance of Team Cambridge, of course, may not impact any negotiations, but the Foreign Office believes it will help strengthen bilateral ties once the United Kingdom finally quits the EU.

This visit will also include a visit to a former concentration camp in Poland before moving to the German capital Berlin on Wednesday.
