Proud parents Kate Middleton and Prince William released a new family photo with their son Prince George on Saturday, March 29. This is the first shot we’ve seen of their 8-month-old baby since his christening back in October 2013.
The latest photo – released just ahead of their Australian/New Zealand tour – shows the Duke, 31, and the Duchess, 32, sitting at the windowsill at their home, Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, with their son.
The royal mum holds onto her boy as he peers at their dog Lupo, which Prince William has his arm wrapped around. Prince George looks adorable with his much longer locks while donning a cashmere sweater with “George” written across the front of it, made by the Scotland-based Johnstons of Elgin.
Middleton looked lovely in a chic beige long-sleeve top with her famous brunette locks cascading past her shoulders. Meanwhile, Prince William kept it casual in a rolled-up light blue shirt.
The family moment was captured by celebrity photographer Jason Bell, who was also on hand for Prince George’s christening. Bell took four official portraits — and a surprise fifth released three days later — of the family and their immediate relatives.
The royal family-of-three are set to tour Australia and New Zealand in April. The royal tot’s new nanny, Maria Teresa Borrallo, will also attend.
