Aww! Prince George Gets Even More Adorable at the Zoo

Apr 20 2014 - 11:03am

Prince George couldn't contain his excitement during the baby's first Easter Sunday celebration [1] at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. Dressed casually in a blue striped polo and shorts, the little royal looked in awe at George, the bilby, a rabbit-like creature who is his namesake, as Kate Middleton and Prince William took turns doting on him. Donning a yellow dress, the duchess tried her best to hold George back from the endangered animal's enclosure while still letting him score a close-up view. The cutest moment came when Will tried to calm George with a sweet kiss on his head.

Even before the family created adorable memories at the park, the zoo already held a special meaning for the royals: when George was born last July, Australia's government made a donation in his honor to fund the zoo's efforts to preserve and restore wildlife. Nearly nine months later, the bilby enclosure was named after him! A ball of energy, George wiggled, let out his signature squeal, and threw a stuffed animal during the plaque unveiling. He got a break from all the excitement as Kate and Will toured the rest of the zoo, feeding a giraffe and meeting a koala before the family boarded a flight to Canberra, Australia.

Earlier in the day, Kate and William went to church, while George was in the care of his nanny. Kate, dressed in a svelte Alexander McQueen coat and Jane Taylor hat, beamed as she walked into St Andrew's Cathedral by William's side. The morning service they attended is one for the history books, as the duke and duchess signed the First Fleet Bible, which was used in the first Christian service held in Australia in 1788. The day before, William and Kate hopped into a fighter plane [2] in Queensland. The duchess donned a floral-print L.K.Bennett dress, the same piece Mindy Kaling coincidentally wore [3] on The Mindy Project in the same week.

We last saw the trio together during their exciting arrival in Sydney [4] on Wednesday. Although George has been out of the spotlight for much of the family's tour, he's already become the king of wiggles [5]! Keep reading to see the latest royal photos, and then catch up on George's most adorable moments [6].
