Prince George Rejects Justin Trudeau’s High Five

Prince William Talks About Prince George's 3rd Birthday
Prince William joked about Prince George's 3rd birthday.

Apparently, Prince George has better things to do with his time.

While arriving with his family in Canada, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau greeted the royal family. In doing so, he knelt down on his knee to offer a shy Prince George a simple high five. Unfortunately, the prince wasn’t into it. In response, he simply rejected the prime minister’s welcoming gesture.

Well, at least Trudeau tried to make an effort. Fortunately, he understands how these things go.

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

Sunday Sept. 25 marks the first time that Prince William and Kate Middleton made an appearance in Canada with both Prince George and Princess Charlotte. This trip is a part of the family’s eight-day tour of British Columbia and Yukon.

“I want to commend you and thank you for introducing our part of the world to Prince George and Princess Charlotte,” Trudeau explained to Prince William and Duchess Kate. “Although let me caution you from my own experience, if they are anything like our kids, getting them back on the plane after a visit to our beautiful west coast will really be a challenge.”

Naturally, the royal parents are thrilled to be back in Canada. At the time of their first visit together, the pair had only been married for three months. Prince William recalls the “warm welcome” that the prime minister had given him and Kate during such an “important moment” in their lives. Likewise, they were happy for their children to experience the country as well.

“We are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us in Canada this time round, beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country,” Prince William shared.

We know that Prince George technically dissed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by not returning the high five. But, how adorable was that? We can’t wait to hear more about the royal family’s adventures in Canada.
