A young royal’s first appearance on an official foreign tour is always headline news all over the world.
There is always huge speculation as to what they will be up to during their time abroad. Will they meet important dignitaries with their parents? Will they go to many engagements? Will there be something new we learn about them?
The pandemic and the huge number of restrictions on public gatherings and travel previously rendered it impossible for many royal duties to take place- this includes foreign tours.
This has affected Prince Louis, three, as he is still yet to go with his parents on his first official tour abroad, despite being significantly over the average age where a royal child will accompany their parents.
His older brother Prince George was only 10 months old when he travelled to Australia and New Zealand in 2014.
When his older sister Princess Charlotte was born in 2015, she and George both travelled to Canada (2016) and to Poland and Germany (2017) with their parents and took part in official duties.
