A royal snub! Prince George rejected a high-five from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shortly after arriving in Canada with his parents, Prince William and Duchess Kate, and sister, Princess Charlotte, Saturday, September 24.
After the royal family touched down in Victoria, British Columbia, to kick off their eight-day tour of the country, Trudeau, 44, walked across the tarmac at Victoria International Airport to greet the foursome.
Offering the shy toddler his hand, the Prime Minister smiled as he squatted down to Prince George’s eye level. The little prince, 3, clearly wasn’t having it and simply shook his head, completely ignoring the gesture.
Trudeau then switched it up and offered Prince George a low-five and a handshake, both of which resulted in a deadpan stare from the boy, who looked adorable in a light blue sweater and navy shorts.
This marks the first time the royals have traveled together as a family of four. Prince George and Princess Charlotte, 16 months, will stay at Government House with their nanny for the duration of the tour while their Mum and Dad make several stops across the Great White North.
Later on Saturday, the Duke of Cambridge, 34, told members of the public, “Catherine and I are delighted to be back in Canada. When we were here last time [Summer 2011], we had been married only three months. The warm welcome that you gave us at that important moment of our lives meant a lot to us — and we have never forgotten it. That is why we are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us in Canada this time around, beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country.”
