Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on 'historic' tour

The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge

The five-day tour at the request of the Foreign Office is Kate's first trip to Germany and the couple have not toured Poland before.

They have been joined by their children Prince George, three, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.

This royal tour is off to an adorable start.

Wearing an Alexander McQueen ivory peplum coat - paired with beige pumps - the Duchess looked incredible.

Prince William, Princess Kate and their royally cute offspring George and Charlotte touched down in Poland today. We hope that Prince William and Duchess Kate assured George-who turns 4 on Saturday-that this week is basically just a prolonged birthday celebration for him.

The children will be looked after by a royal nanny while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge carry out a hectic schedule of official duties. The duke and duchess stepped off their plane with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, looking stylish as ever in the country's colors - red and white.

Also in the Baltic port city, Kate and William will visit the European Solidarity Centre museum, which tells the story of the Soviet bloc´s only free trade union.

E! News wrote that once the initial greetings were over, Kate Middleton and Prince William, with the two children, were escorted to Belweder Palace, their base for the time they spend in Poland.

While in Poland, William, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and the second in line to the British throne, and his wife will be expected to do all they can to remind the Polish people of the strength of the social, cultural and economic ties between the two countries. Afterward, they visited the Warsaw Rising Museum, met with veterans, and paid their respects to the deceased at the Wall of Remembrance.

The Cambridges will visit Gdansk on Tuesday, after which they will fly to Germany where they will spend one day each in Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg.

They will tour a former Nazi concentration camp in Stutthof on Tuesday, the first built by Germany outside its borders after the start of World War Two.
