After three weeks of official engagements and photo ops, Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince George finished their tour of Australia and New Zealand and headed back home to the U.K. The royal family boarded a plane on Friday (April 25) in Canberra, where they were seen off by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his wife, Margie Abbott.
Looking chic in an indigo and white tweed Michael Kors coatdress, the Duchess of Cambridge, 32, accessorized with a Russell and Bromley clutch, a Cartier watch and an Asprey charm pendant.
The stylish mum toted her son up the steps to the plane and then turned to wave to well-wishers.
Dressed in a red sweater and shorts, the royal tot was his usual wiggly self and restlessly kicking his legs upon their farewell.
Their departure follows 19 days of sightseeing and traveling throughout New Zealand and Australia.
On Thursday, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a stop at the Parliament House, where Prince William spoke about their travels Down Under.
“Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow,” William said.

“Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit,” he added. “We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly. We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is, and will yet become.”
