Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on 'historic' tour

This is the first official visit of the entire family gathered in these countries. The Cambridges will visit Gdansk on Tuesday, after which they will fly to Germany where they will spend one day each in Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg.

The pre-Brexit trip, taken at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, has been seen as a chance to improve relations with European Union nations as negotiations get underway.

"The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to this tour and are delighted with the exciting and varied programme that has been put together for it", a Kensington Palace spokesperson said.

It added that the royal couple William and Kate are grateful that they will meet the Polish people, calling them "important friends of the United Kingdom".

The duke and duchess then headed off to meet, sans children, with Polish President Andrzej Duda and the first lady at the presidential palace.

British ambassador to Germany, Sir Jonathan Knott, told the broadcaster: "In a way this is historic, the first time that Prince William comes with his family on an official visit, and it's the beginning of what I hope will be a long standing relationship between them and Germany".

In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel will hold a private meeting with Prince William and Kate in Berlin before they visit the Brandenburg Gate, a symbol of German unification.

A boat race is planned in the city of Heidelberg, which is twinned with Cambridge.

There will be a competitive element to the European royal visit by Prince William and Kate Middleton who will join forces with a team from Cambridge to take on a team of German rowers.
