George has a bit of a history of being rather unimpressed by world leaders. Remember this:

The BEST! George already wins this tour. I  must commend Justin for really trying to get George to high five him back. You gotta persist with kids.

Seriously, look at George’s swagger. For those who are loving George’s look (no one wears knee socks quite like him), his outfit is from Pepa and Company, the same store that made George’s sweet birthday look. His socks are Amaia.

Princess Charlotte looked extra adorable in a blue and white smock dress that has yet to be identified. But her bow was from Amaia and her shoes are from m&h, both brands she’s worn before.  What Kate’s Kids Wore has lots of details on the outfits so be sure to check it out.

And Kate, who is seriously posing in the photo above, wore a bespoke dress from Jenny Packham, accessorized with a maple leaf brooch and Lock & Co hat with maple leaves. She looked gorgeous and I love how the whole family was matching in blue—one of the main colours of British Columbia’s flag.

After the family’s big arrival, William and Kate settled the kids in for the night at Government House, before heading over to the British Columbia parliament buildings for the official welcome with Justin and Sophie. The kids will be based atGovernment House in Victoria for the next eight days. During the day, William and Kate will head off for engagements and the kids will get to hang at this official residence. But don’t worry, the kids will have lots to do while waiting for Mom and Dad to get home.

The pair will have a massive “backyard” to play in and the gardeners have filled the fountain with ducks to keep the kids entertained. There has also been a special itinerary of fun activities planned for the kids around Victoria. Though we won’t ever get to see that itinerary because it’s private, we do have some guesses on places the kids will check out. George is a huge fan of boats (and airplanes and motorcycles), so I suspect they will go whale watching on the 4 Ever Wild boat. And for more laid-back days, the kids will definitely need to check out Beacon Hill Park, which has a playground, petting zoo and waterpark.

So when will we see George and Charlotte next? The only time Kensington Palace is confirming we will see the royal siblings is at the end of the tour (October 1) when they leave Victoria with Kate and William. BUT there is a children’s party on September 29 at Government house where George and Charlotte are staying. The hope is that the kids will both come. Kensington Palace won’t confirm this till the day of because it all depends on how the kids are feeling—as you all know, toddlers are temperamental. Jet lag, illness or crankiness could mean the kids won’t come to the party. But I suspect both kids will be there—and I am hoping a certain adorable Trudeau kid will get to meet them.
