The much-adored children of British royals William and Kate will join their parents on an official visit to Canada.

Prince George and his baby sister Princess Charlotte will head to the North American country, a member of the Commonwealth, later in September.

Kensington Palace has just released details of the tour, and there could be as many as four public appearances for the young family.

They are scheduled to fly to Victoria on September 24 for what the royals' website says will be a busy tour, with more than 30 engagements over one week. The Duke and Duchess hope to meet thousands of new people along the way, the site says.

George's first official royal tour was when the family visited New Zealand in 2014, before Charlotte was born. George was still small enough to attend a Plunket playgroup at Wellington's Government House.
