The Royal couple have travelled the world together in style!  And their children accompanied them. At only 9 months old, Prince George joined Kate and William on their official tour of New Zealand and Australia.

One of their favourite locations to visit is France.  Last summer, they have taken both Prince George and Princess Charlotte to South of France on a private jet.  They’re known as travel role-models as they always keep their children entertained with fun activities.  For winter holidays and skiing, they go to the French Alps. The family favourite resort is the picturesque Courchevel.

The power couple have been together since 2002 and have four kids together. The retired footballer and former Spice Girl have moved back to London in 2013 but miss the sunny LA weather. So they travel a lot to make up for it. Their most recent adventure was a safari tour in Tanzania, at the Serengeti National Park. This UNESCO Heritage site is a sanctuary for wildlife. You can see anything from cheetahs, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, gnus and even crocodiles!
