All the Countries Prince George Traveled to Before His 4th Birthday
The young prince has seen quite a variety of exotic locations in just four years.
His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge will be celebrating his fourth birthday this Saturday, July 22.
The future king will have just returned from his latest official royal tour with his family through Poland and Germany, adding to the list of international locations he’s already visited in his short time on the planet.
In celebration of his birthday, here’s a look back at some of the destinations he has visited so far.
Mustique, an island located in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, is known today for its white sand beaches and secluded blue waters. Prince George traveled there at just six months old.
The destination has been a traditional vacation spot for the royal family, but their trip in 2014 marked a special occasion as the family celebrated both the prince’s first official vacation and his grandmother, Carole Middleton’s, birthday, according to Vanity Fair.
Australia and New Zealand:
Following his journey to Mustique, Prince George joined his parents, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, on his first official royal tour.
The family completed a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia, where Prince George carried out his first official engagement, which included playing with other babies at a playground at the Government House in Wellington, New Zealand.
According to the BBC, this was one of only two instances when he made public appearances during the trip, with the other taking place at a newly opened enclosure at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo. He was just nine months old at the time.
In 2016, both Prince George and Princess Charlotte got to take their very first ski trip with the family in the luxurious French Alps.
During the winter getaway, the family enjoyed snowball fights, playing in the snow, and, of course, hitting the slopes. They stayed in Courchevel, a French resort town known for its mega-chalets, luxury resorts, and top-notch restaurants, where they celebrated Mother’s Day before returning home.
Prince George has also spent some quality holiday time in Scotland, where he and Princess Charlotte (and their parents) caught up with the Queen and Prince Philip at their estate in the Scottish Highlands, according to People.
In the fall of 2016, Prince George took his second royal tour, visiting Canada this time around.
The family traveled across the Great White North, stopping in British Columbia and Yukon along the way.
The eight-day trip included a garden party that the children attended, which was held for children of military families on the grounds of British Columbia’s Government House.
Germany and Poland:
The family just wrapped up their most recent royal tour, which included visits to the Polish capital of Warsaw and the German city of Hamburg.
During the trip, which took place from July 17-21, the family toured planes at an Airbus training facility, where Prince George got to see helicopters just like the ones his father flies up close, according to E! News.
The trip will be the last one the family can take without having to worry about school schedules interfering, as Prince George will be attending school in south London this fall.
