Incoming Governor-General Peter Cosgrove has let slip that Prince George will travel to Australia with his parents William and Kate in April and the family will visit Sydney and Canberra, according to The Australian 20 February 2014.
The former defence chief met the Queen at Buckingham Palace ahead of officially becoming her representative in late March.
The two had a wideranging discussion about Australia and also the much-anticipated trip Down Under.
''It's going to be a very welcome visit,” General Cosgrove told reporters afterwards.''They'll bring with them Prince George the little one. They'll be in Sydney and then in Canberra after their sojourn in New Zealand.”
Immediately asked if he'd inadvertently let slip that Prince George was definitely heading Down Under, the former defence chief back-peddled somewhat.
“I hope he's coming,” he said.“the Governor-General.“I don't know — I'm not yet the Governor-General.
“I think every Aussie who likes the idea of royal couples having their children with them on tour will hope that's the case, but let's wait and see.”
In announcing the Australian and New Zealand tour in December, the palace said it was anticipated Prince George would accompany the Duke and Duchess “but a decision will be made in due course”.
