British royals awaited in Poland at start of a EU visit

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge are, after all, determined their children grow up in private and not in the public glare.

And we're off! The royal family has arrived in Warsaw for this week's royal tour, which will be comprised of everything from a night of Shakespeare to a competitive rowboat race.

Prince William, Kate Middleton and their two children, George and Charlotte, have just started an official visit from Poland to Germany after attending the final at the famous British tennis tournament in Wimbledon.

William and Kate also celebrated the 70th birthday of Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, over the weekend.

Shortly after touching down, the family were escorted to Belweder Palace, about a 20-minute drive away from the airport, where they were greeted by Poland's President Duda and his wife, First Lady Agata.

'They have decided that their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will travel with them and we expect the children to be seen on at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week, ' they added.

They will then visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum and meet Polish and British WWII veterans, before talking British-Polish start-up partnerships at an event for young entrepreneurs at the Warsaw Spire skyscraper.

Prince William and Kate will meet again with the Polish first couple before heading to Germany on Wednesday morning.

Prince William and Duchess Kate will spend two days in Poland touring the country's historical sites, including the Stutthof Concentration Camp, where more than 65,000 people died during World War II. In Germany they are due to visit the Berlin Holocaust Memorial.

Also on Tuesday, they will visit a museum in Gdansk commemorating the Solidarity movement which shook communist rule in the 1980s.

The state visit is part of the royal couple's unofficial duties as Brexit ambassadors, as they attempt to strengthen the UK's relations with Europe as it prepares to leave the European Union, and comes a day after the pair were spotted congratulating tennis champion Roger Federer's win in the Men's Wimbledon Final.
