The Duke and Duchess have returned home from a rather hectic five-day tour of Poland and Germany with their two children, just in time for the little Prince’s birthday.

Prince George could not contain his excitement during a visit to the Airbus factory in Hamburg, on 21 July, during the final leg of their tour. He had a marvellous time exploring a helicopter just like the one his father flew whilst working with the East Anglia Air Ambulance Service.

The little prince even donned a chopper pilot helmet as he clamoured aboard.

According to sources, the helicopter visit was said to be a pre-birthday treat for Prince George.

However, it became a bit too much for his sister Charlotte who burst into tears after falling over on the tarmac. The Duchess of Cambridge spoke reassuringly to the little girl and calmed the situation.

However, this wasn’t Prince George’s first overseas royal visit.

Prince George has travelled with his parents on previous royal visits including Australia in 2014 and Canada 2016.

Prince George will be attending a private coeducational preparatory school Thomas’s, Battersea, in September 2017, instead of boys’ schools like his father and grandfather.
