Get Ready To N'aww! Prince George's First Official Royal Engagement At Play Date

09 April 2014 by


Eight-month-old Prince George has made his first official engagement this morning, where he showed off his crawling skills and adorable little pout. George was brought to a play date organised by The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society at Government House in Wellington, attended by ten other babies of a similar age.

George looked like he was having a blast meeting other babies and playing with a colourful toy at the most publicized play date of all time. But he wasn't phased by all of the attention, handling his visit like a total pro. The Duchess said at the event that George had never played with so many babies before. But George seemed more interested in Kate's glossy locks, putting her hair as a moustache and lovingly stroking her locks. Well that's what we'd do.


Prince George looked adorable in navy  overalls with a sailing boat front from Rachel Riley (£77), worn over a white shirt and navy blue boots. The Prince George effect is now officially a thing as the kangaroo backpack which Prince William carried in Sydney airport sold out within hours. Plus following the 'George' baby blue jumper he wore in latest royal picture - personalised baby retailer they sold more than 1200 personalised jumpers just four days after the picture was released.


At the event Prince William said sleeping was the best thing to get over jet-lag and that's what they'd done with George, reports the Daily Mail. Kate wore a monochrome Tory Burch dress paying tribute to the host country as a royal press secretary confirmed the dress was chosen for the New Zealand colours, a subtle tribute to her host country.

George is expected to visit Taronga Zoo in Sydney, but as expected with a young baby his appearances are likely to change as Miguel Head, the couple's private secretary, said: 'But George being just a little over eight-months-old by the time they travel, I’m sure you will appreciate that the couple will have to make a final decision on those moments much closer to the time.'
