On April 7th, Prince George Alexander Louis, the nine-month-old son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton and Prince William), set off on his first foreign tour to New Zealand and Australia. The bundle of cuteness showed perfect royal demeanor when he emerged from the airplane after the long flight from London to Wellington with a bright smile and what appeared to be, his first royal wave!

After resting for a day, on April 9th, the prince who is third in line to the British throne, went to fulfill his first public engagement - A royal playdate. Held at the Government House by local parent support organization, Plunket, it included ten babies that were about the same age as the young prince. Though this was probably the first time George had been exposed to so many 'friends' at the same time, it did not seem to faze him. Looking quite regal in his navy 'sailboat-smocked' dungaree shorts and a white onsie, the young prince appeared to enjoy every moment of it and seemed puzzled, when some of the babies began to get fussy. The perfect gentleman even extended his arm out for a formal handshake, when introduced to an equally cute young girl, dressed in a polka dots.

Though not much has been heard of his activities since, then we have a feeling that the young prince will be fulfilling some more engagements during this three-week tour that will take him to Auckland, Sydney, and Australia's capital, Canberra, to mark ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day, before returning home to London on April 25th - So be prepared for additional cuteness overload!
