The World's Crazy about Prince George


When Prince George of Cambridge was born last July, the excitement was a little overshadowed by another highly anticipated birth – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter, North West. During his first few months, the newest heir to the British throne was rarely seen, which led to crazy speculations of deformities, autism and various maladies. But just before he and his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were about to depart on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, a photo of the family was released, and all was well in the kingdom.

The second the family touched down in New Zealand, it was all about that precious little baby! What was he wearing? Look at those new teeth! Where did he get that adorable backpack? Maybe it's the nostalgia of those sweet days of William's mother, Princess Diana, introducing her firstborn to the world? After all, he looks to be his daddy's twin. Side-by-side photos of George and "Wills" at 8 months old are shocking in their similarity. This adorable little guy has captured the hearts of people around the world.

When his parents took him to his first play group with other babies born close to the same time, Prince George quickly showed his future leadership qualities by taking a toy from a cute little girl and making her cry. Hopefully, he'll be a more gentle leader in the future. Maybe he was flirting? He captivated the room in seconds. One parent called him "quite the bruiser" as they all fawned over him. Kate revealed that he was teething and sleeping through the night most of the time. Prince William made sure to point out that he usually gives him his last bottle of the night.

The excitement of the visit continued when they visited a zoo in Australia. There was so much media coverage about George and a little bilby that it seemed like all other news was on pause. U.K. media complained that they never had that kind of access to the prince and felt slighted that the family waited until they were out of the country to take him out in public. Now that the family is safely back home, will the British people have their wish? Americans seem just as taken with little George; maybe we'll be lucky enough to get our own royal visit with the baby.
