Prince George, Duchess Catherine, Kate Middleton, Duke William, Prince William, Lupo


The royals are headed Down Under!

This weekend, Prince William, Kate Middleton and 8-month-old son Prince George will embark on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia. The trip will mark little George's first royal tour abroad.

Will, Kate and George are scheduled to arrive in Wellington, New Zealand on Monday, Apr. 7. The fam's first official event will be at a parents and baby group on Apr. 9 at the Government House in Wellington (baby Will crawled there during his very first trip outside the U.K. back in 1983!).

Meanwhile, in Australia, the fam will travel to the Blue Mountains on the outskirts of Sydney to meet local residents who were affected by recent bush fires. And on Apr. 22 the royal trio will head to the Outback to visit Uluru, a sacred Aboriginal rock formation.

While we wait to see Will, Kate and George's adventures Down Under captured in photos, here are some things we hope to see from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their travels around New Zealand and Australia.

• Koala Pics!: There's nothing we want to see more than Kate Middleton holding George in one hand and an adorable koala in the other! While in Australia, the fam must visit a local animal sanctuary where they can meet and greet with koalas, kangaroos and Australia's native bird, the emu.

• Hobbiton: We hope the famous family will stop by Hobbiton in New Zealand to check out the scenery where Peter Jackson filmed the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Can you imagine a pic of little George in the Shire?!

• Vegemite: We hope Will and Kate will let George try his first bite of the Australian spread Vegemite. Equally amazing will be the post-tasting pic of George's puckered face after trying the salty treat.

• Sydney Opera House: We'd absolutely love to see Kate, Will and George don their finest black tie outfits for a visit to the iconic Sydney Opera House. We want to see little George in his first baby tuxedo!

• Beach Time: Perhaps the trio will take a day off from their duties to visit one of Australia and New Zealand's many beautiful beaches.
