The surroundings of Warsaw Chopin Airport may have been strange for George along with the unknown faces of dignitaries and soldiers in the guard of honour waiting on the runway.

But they were all in keeping with the start of the Cambridges’ official five-day tour of Poland and Germany, taken at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and likely to be seen as another royal Brexit diplomacy tour.

Despite a light shower, William and Kate, who dazzled in a Alexander McQueen outfit, looked relaxed as they chatted to Jonathan Knott, Britain’s ambassador to Poland, his wife Angela, and the diplomat’s Polish counterpart in Britain Arkady Rzegocki.
