An official photograph of Prince George with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has been released ahead of their tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Kensington Palace released a new family photograph of the royals on Saturday, March 29, featuring the beautiful 8-month-old with his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton. The couple's cocker spaniel, Lupo also makes a special appearance in the delightful photo.
The baby boy, who is third in line to the throne, has only made two public outings since his birth -- the first time as he left hospital, and then at his christening in October.
In the image, taken by royal christening photographer Jason Bell, the family is looking through an open window at their Kensington Palace home.
George, who was born on July 22, 2013, will be a similar age to William when he made his first trip Down Under with his parents, Prince Charles and the late Diana, in 1983.
The Cambridges are due to arrive in New Zealand on April 7.
The royals will be accompanied on their 18-day trip next month by their new Spanish nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, who trained at the famous Norland College for childminders in Bath, western England.
