Prince George Rejected High-Five from Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau


Prince George rejected a high-five from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau upon arriving in the country with his parents and 16-month-old sister Princess Charlotte on Sunday.

Trudeau greeted the royal family and knelt down to offer the shy Prince George, 3, his hand. The attempted high-five backfired when Prince George showed no interest in bonding with the prime minister.

Trudeau joked with the family, saying, “As any parent traveling with children knows, it’s a whole different experience when you bring your family with you.”

Sunday marked the first time the Prince William and Kate Middleton have visited Canada with their children.

Kate wore a royal blue Jenny Packham suit with a matching hat and Queen Elizabeth II’s diamond maple leaf brooch as Princess Charlotte, on her first official tour, clung to her mother in a light blue dress with a matching bow in her hair.

George was also decked out in blue, wearing a knit sweater with wooden buttons over a traditional blue and beige plaid shirt, teamed with navy blue wool shorts, all from the Spanish brand Pepa & Co. He also donned blue knee socks.

The tour, which is expected to be mostly casual and sporty, will see them take in everything from “the bustling global city of Vancouver to the remote and beautiful Bella Bella, home to less than 2,000 people,” their spokesman explained. “Along the way they will meet as many Canadians as possible, and will help celebrate Canada’s First Nations communities, its arts and culture, pristine and beautiful environment, and its compassionate and innovative charitable sector.”
