Princess Charlotte and Prince George wave goodbye to Canada

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children Prince George and Princess Charlotte were the picture of excitement as they waved goodbye to the crowds before boarding a seaplane in Victoria on Saturday.

The three-year-old prince looked simply delighted upon seeing the crowds when leaving the car, enthusiastically smiling and waving with both hands while looking simply adorable in red burgundy shorts with a navy blue jumper and ankle socks, with his blonde hair swept onto one side.

Prince George gave the most enthusiastic wave to fans in Victoria.

The little Prince held his dad's hand tightly as Prince William chatted to the officials who had gathered to say goodbye to the family, who headed home to the UK after the eight-day tour.

Prince Charlotte enjoyed waving goodbye with her brother, Prince George.

Meanwhile, the Duchess carried her daughter, who matched her big brother's outfit by wearing a blue dress with a burgundy cardigan, with her brunette hair clipped back with an adorable blue bow.

Although the one-year-old initially seemed confused by the attention, she soon began to enthusiastically wave to the crowds after her mum placed her on the ground while holding her hand tightly as they made their way to the seaplane.

Prince George insisted on standing on the plane's steps.

The two children stayed at the Government House in Victoria for their duration of their stay, and made their only official royal engagement at a children's party on Thursday. The pair seemed to have a wonderful time at the party. They played with petting zoo animals, balloons and bubble machines while the Duke and Duchess kept a close watch on them.

This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit."
