Prince George will accompany the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their visit to New Zealand and Australia next April, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
At the time of his first official overseas tour the baby prince will be eight months old.
Details of the itinerary have also been revealed – including visits to Uluru, in Australia’s Northern Territory and Churchill in New Zealand.
The entourage of 11 people will include a nanny and a hairdresser.
The royal party will travel to Australia on a scheduled flight, arriving on Monday 7 April.
The three-week trip will echo the Prince and Princess of Wales’s visit to Australia and New Zealand in 1983 when the couple took William, then aged nine months, with them.
Then, the princess’s wardrobe was said to have weighed three tonnes and one million people were reported to have turned out to see them.
Three decades on, royal watchers will have to content themselves with limited glimpses of Prince George – such is his age and the protectiveness of his parents, says BBC royal correspondent Peter Hunt.
