Prince George Is Allowed To Travel With Prince William To Australia (Because The Queen Said So)

Not only has HM the Queen been giving Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, a few pointers on etiquette ahead of her Australia tour in April but she's given the royal nod to letting heirs Prince William and Prince George fly together.

That's right, royal protocol has been wavered so that the family of three can travel together. Their three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand will start with a 24-hour flight to Wellington which will see the royals arrive on 7 April.

This might be Prince George's first royal engagement and the first time the three will tour together but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have their royal entourage and Prince George's nanny on hand to help.

Kate and Wills have a pretty hectic schedule ahead sight-seeing, paying tribute to earthquake victims in Christchurch and visiting the South Island of New Zealand but this tour won't be too fast paced - they have a baby on their hands this time.
