Prince George Takes His First Steps. See The Pictures

Prince George has taken his first steps - and it looks like he might be getting ready to rescue England's World Cup hopes.

As he approaches his first birthday, the future king was photographed tottering around and then kicking a ball with the help of his mum, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The blonde-haired baby royal stole the show at Prince Williamand Uncle Harry's Father's Day polo match as he walked and crawled in fetching pink dungarees and cuddled his mum at the Cirencester Polo Club in Gloucestershire.

The princes were battling it out on opposing teams as they took part in the annual Jerudong Trophy Polo Match.

The trophy is an annual event held to raise money for good causes.

Prince George celebrates his first birthday next month, on July 22. The polo match is the first time the youngest Royal has been photographed since Kate and William's tour of Australia and New Zealand earlier in the year.

George enjoyed his first Royal 'crawl about' with other babies at a playgroup in New Zealand, where he raced across the floor and made a claim for the best toys on the floor.
