The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, attended their first engagement of the Royal Tour with baby Prince George since landing in New Zealand on Monday morning.

Eight-month-old George and his mother and father met 10 other sets of parents and their children at a mass play date organised by child welfare charity The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society at Government House in Wellington.

While proud mum Kate looked stunning in a black and white print Tory Burch dress and with her long dark tresses as immaculate as usual, Prince George stole the show once again. Why? Well, not only did he look cheek-pinchingly cute but he was crawling!

The play date with babies all born within a few weeks of his own birthday marked George's second appearance of the three-week long Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia Following.

Dressed in blue Rachel Riley dungaree shorts with a ship on the front, a white blouse and soft blue shoes, George was seen playing with (or should that be stealing) the other children's toys.

Kate and Wills watched on as they chatted with the other parents. "It's madness," said William, "There are babies everywhere!"

Parents Grant Collins and Magda Gurbowicz met the royals with their baby son Lucas and asked how the young family was coping with jet lag.

"We chatted to the Duke first and asked about how they and George coped with the jet-lag," said Grant.

"William said sleeping and distracting [the baby] was the best thing to get over jet-lag and that's what they'd done with George. We spoke to the Duchess about group play - George had never played with so many babies before.

"She said it was the most amount of babies they'd ever had in a room with George."
