The young royal is growing fast

Baby Prince George was the centre of attention on his latest public appearance in Australia over the weekend.

The 9-month-old tot joined his parents Kate Middleton and Prince William for a trip to Taronga Zoo in Sydney, where he was introduced to a bilby that had been named after him.

George giggled and squealed with excitement as he watched the marsupial in its enclosure while Wills, 31, and Kate, 32, took it in turns to hold him up.

The young Prince was later presented with a cuddly toy version of the animal but appeared unimpressed, casually throwing it on the floor as soon as it was given to him.

Kate – who looked stunning in a pretty lemon frock – laughed as she bent down to pick up the unwanted gift.

George was far more taken with a car sticker reading ‘wild child on board’ and happily chewed away on that instead.

The cute royal already has three teeth.

Munch, munch, munch,’ doting dad Wills laughed while holding his cheeky son.
