The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge begin their eagerly awaited tour tomorrow, heading to the Caribbean to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Year.
The couple have done a lot of traveling abroad and in 2016 even took three-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte on an official trip to Canada.
When the family of four then arrived in British Columbia, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was present to greet them.
But there was an awkward moment when George got Mr. Trudeau hanged after engaging in an intense round.
During the meeting, Mr. Trudeau crouched down to George’s level and extended his hand to congratulate him.

But the young royal looked unimpressed and shook his head.
The Prime Minister of Canada again tried to give the lowest, but George also refused before shaking hands more formally.
But once again the young prince showed no desire to please the Canadian leader.
However, the rejection was far from causing an international incident. Mr Trudeau later tweeted that he and his wife Sophie were “very honored” to receive the royal family.

George, Charlotte and their younger brother Louis are expected to stay home during their parents’ Caribbean tour.
Buckingham Palace confirmed last month that it would be visiting the area for a week-long trip to help mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The tour will take place in Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas before concluding on March 26.
A spokesperson for Kensington Palace said: “Their Royal Family are looking forward to the visit, which will be their first official overseas visit since Covid-19 began in 2020.”
The past week has been a busy week for both William and Kate.
On Monday, they were at the annual Commonwealth Day ceremony at Westminster Abbey along with other royals.
Meanwhile, yesterday they took part in the traditional St Patrick’s Day Parade with the 1st Battalion of the Irish Guards.
William is a Colonel of the Irish Guards and he and Kate have attended the annual event together several times in the past.
