Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge will visit Australia in April and they are expected to bring their young son Prince George with them.
The official Royal statement says it is anticipated that Prince George will accompany his parents on the tour, which will take in New Zealand first.
If confirmed by Kensington Palace, it will be the future king’s first overseas trip. It will also be the first time that Kate Middleton has been to either Australia or New Zealand. The family was invited to visit by the Australian and New Zealand governments.

Prince Harry flew out of Australia last night as speculation grew that he is about to announce his engagement to girlfriend Cressida Bonas.
Friends insisted the pair plan to wed as early as next year.
One said: “Cressie is going to marry Harry. He never stops talking about marriage and children, and she has now got used to the idea. The wedding is likely next year.”
Harry, 29, who finished a two-day official visit to Australia, and Cressida, 24, have been together since May 2012.
But he just laughed and changed the subject yesterday when an Australian fan asked him when he would marry.
Britain’s Prince Harry will make his first official visit to Australia next month to attend a fleet review in Sydney.
The two-day visit marks the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet into Sydney Harbour in 1913.
The fourth in line to Britain’s throne will be the guest of honour at the International Fleet Review, which features more than 40 warships, 16 tall ships and 8,000 naval personnel from 19 countries.
According to ‘The Times’, the prince will join Tony Abbott, the country’s new Prime Minister on the surveying ship HMAS Leeuwin to watch events on the water on October 5.
While the celebrations in Australia are spread across nine days, the prince is there for a couple of days during which he also plans to travel to Perth.
Harry visited Australia privately in 2003 during a gap year break, when he worked on a cattle station in Queensland and watched England win the rugby World Cup.

Congrats all around to our girl P!nk who broke two records in Melbourne, Australia. She attracted 18 sold out shows across July and August 2013 as part of her Truth About Love World Tour surpassing the previous arena record of 17 shows in 2009, also set by P!nk during her Funhouse Tour.
The Truth About Love World Tour has sold close to 250,000 tickets in Melbourne alone (no other artist has played to people in Melbourne on one tour).
The closest was AC/DC’s three shows at Etihad Stadium in 2011 which sold around 180,000 tickets, while Madonna’s three MCG shows were seen by around 145,000 people in 1993.
Between all her tours at Rod Laver Arena Pink has sold over 500,000 tickets – another venue record!
