Prince George's Play Date
The little one enjoys a playdate in New Zealand.
Kate Middleton, Prince William and their eight-month-old son Prince George arrived at Sydney airport in Australia for the second leg of their royal holiday and press tour today (April 16, 2014).

Prince George has definitely been the star attraction of the trip.

Kate looked gorgeous in a banana yellow Roksanda Ilincic SS14 Ryedale shift dress which was a nod to Australia’s national color.

William and Kate left rain-soaked New Zealand and flew to sunny Sydney for a 10-day visit that will see them travel across the nation visiting famous sites, honoring its war dead and recognizing the achievements of individuals.

Later in the day Will and Kate received an official welcome at the Sydney Opera House at a reception of around 400 people.

Making a speech on the couple’s arrival, William admitted he had been keen to bring his family along following his first official visit four years ago: “This visit to Australia has been one that Catherine and I have been looking forward to for a long time.”

“On my first visit here as an adult in 2010, I remember just how bowled over I was by Sydney: seeing the energy and diversity of this beautiful city, and understanding just how much Australia is the home of innovation, opportunity and possibility.”

He added: “I was well prepared: the affection that my grandmother The Queen has for this nation is infectious. Her Majesty spoke recently of how, since her first visit here sixty years ago, she has been privileged to witness Australia’s growing economy and flowering self-confidence.”
