Even while carrying Charlotte, the royal expertly navigated the plane steps in her favorite nude high heels, while William held onto three-year-old Prince George, who at first seemed reluctant to disembark from the plane but later gained his confidence back.

The duke and duchess, who was wearing a white Alexander McQueen skirt suit, met Poland's president, Andrzej Duda, and first lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, at the Presidential Palace then took in a tour of Warsaw's Krakowskie Przedmieście street.

They will visit the Warsaw Rising Museum, dedicated to the 1944 Polish uprising to liberate Warsaw from German occupation during World War Two.

In Poland, they will tour the former Stutthof concentration camp where 65,000 people died, and tour the site of Gdansk's shipyards, the birthplace of Poland's Solidarity movement that helped topple Communist rule.
