Following royal tradition, Prince George’s official birth announcement was placed on an easel outside Buckingham Palace.

However it was first revealed in a press release from palace officials.

He left the hospital with his parents on 23 July and his name was declared as George Alexander Louis the following day.

Baby George was christened in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace on October 2013. It was his first public appearance in three months.

It was also announced that Prince George would have seven godparents, including Zara Tindall, who is the cousin of Prince William and the daughter of Princess Anne.

On 9 April, he made his first public engagement of the tour at a playdate at Government House, Wellington. It was arranged by the New Zealand parenting organisation Plunket.

Baby George’s other public appearance was on 20 April, Easter Sunday, when he met a bilby named after him at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

The first birthday party thrown for George was themed around the children’s author Beatrix Potter, who knew members of his maternal ancestors.

In September 2014, it was announced that Prince George was set to be a big brother.
