Some of Our Favourite Moments From The Royal Tour

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge bid their final farewells to Australia today after ending a 19 day trip down under.

The commonwealth tour which began on the 7th of April saw the royals begin their journey from New Zealand, with the final stop in Canberra Australia.

Kate and William visited many national memorials and sites during their 19 day tour with many memorable moments but the main star of the trip was Prince George who has captured the hearts of many in both countries and essentially, around the world.

The Royals have been praised for their ‘normal’ and laid back approach which has helped shore up public support for the monarchy in the two countries.

The Prince in his farewell speech at the Australian Houses Of Parliament on Thursday spoke of how much they had enjoyed their trip, especially his son, adding that they couldn’t wait to come back.

William said: “Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow.’

“Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit.’

“We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly.”

The Duke of Cambridge continued, “Australia has a quality of life and a level of excellence that makes it a magnet: an enormously attractive place to live, trade, invest, and indeed just visit,” he said.

“We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is, and will yet become.” [Sky News].

The little prince will be spoilt for choice when he returns to Kensington Palace with the sheer amount of gifts showered on him by members of the public and government dignitaries, one of which includes the giant Wombat presented to the Prince by the Governor General of Australia Peter Cosgrove.

George looked positively disgruntled as the family waved their final goodbyes as they made to board the ir aircraft for the long gruelling flight back to Sydney and then London.

We can only imagine that the Duke and Duchess won’t be looking forward to the trip especially with a baby on board.

Earlier on, the royals made a surprise appearance at a Dawn service held in remembrance of Australian Soldiers who have died during the wars. Kate and William reportedly were keen to attend this event because they felt it was right that they showed their support to an event that was clearly very emotional and dear to the families of the fallen service men.

Kate looked stylish despite the Australian chill in an all black ensemble, keeping out the cold with a chunky beige scarf.
