It’s official: Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge is beyond adorable. Here he is with Mom, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, at his first official royal engagement, a public play date in New Zealand.
Can you stand it? The booties?! Doesn’t he look like Mom—with a smidgen of Queen Elizabeth in just the right places (maybe the eye-nose area)?

The big event went down in the Blundell Room at Government House, where the Queen’s official New Zealand rep resides, and it was hosted by the Royal New Zealand Plunket Society, which provides free services to new parents and their babies.
Ten fortunate babies, who were born around the same time as Prince George—within weeks of July 22, 2013—and who live in the Wellington region, and their parents, of course, were invited to the royal playdate. (Amazing. Can you imagine being invited to that event?)
