The Duchess of Cambridge reveals the picture of baby George that's stolen her heart. And ours, for that matter...
Kate Middleton, Prince William and baby Prince George’s royal tour may have come to a close but the family now have a gorgeous album of pictures to look back on – one in particular the Duchess of Cambridge adores.
The 32-year-old told professional photographer Simon Woolf of her favourite photo featuring her 9-month-old son from the three week engagement around New Zealand and Australia, and my, is it a cutie.
Nestled into his mother’s shoulder with a cheeky grin on his face and Prince William smiling in the background, George was photographed cuddling up to Kate on a visit to Government House in Wellington.
Wearing tiny blue Rachel Riley dungarees embroidered with a sailing boat and a white babygro along with the sweetest smile we’ve seen from George so far, it’s no wonder his doting mother has fallen in love with the gorgeous snap.
“She said it was just lovely and that it was her favourite photo of the tour,” revealed Simon, who not only photographed the royals in New Zealand but also acts as a Wellington City councillor.
Revealing that he gifted the couple with a black and white copy of the photo as they left the country, he added: “There was a bit of a plan for a [staged] family photo, but it fell to pieces because they allowed George to sleep for an extra half-hour.”
Aw. We think the candid shots are the best anyway. This is pretty much proof, right?
