The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand, the first official trip overseas with their son, Prince George of Cambridge.

Prince George
has not even reached his first birthday, and he’s already learning the duties of a royal.

Accompanying his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, on a tour of Australia and New Zealand, the royal baby clung to his mother as they mingled with the crowd at a Parents Group event in Wellington, New Zealand.

Now on the third day of their tour, the 8-month-old sported a dark-colored romper with a sailboat stitched into the front.

George can also be seen playing with toys at the event, at one point interacting with another child in what looks adorably close to a classic handshake photo.

According to “USA Today,” he will pop up at around two of the roughly two dozen engagements planned for Kate and William during their three-week trip.

Though it seems unorthodox to take a small child on a tour of two foreign countries, Prince William himself went on a tour Down Under around the same age back in ’83.
