Prince George Photographed On His First Public Walkabout

Kate and Wills’ son was the picture of royal ease as he shuffled around at a polo match on Sunday

Prince William celebrated his first Father’s Day yesterday with a family outing to a charity polo match he was playing in. And George, who will celebrate his first birthday next month, showed the world that he’s mastered the art of walking.

The 10-month-old prince, who showed how comfortable he was crawling on his royal tour in Australia and New Zealand two months ago, held his mum’s hand as he toddled around Cirencester Park Polo Club in Gloucestershire – the first time he’s been pictured walking.

The young prince, who’s now sporting a full head of blonde hair, wore red striped dungarees and a white polo shirt, while his equally stylish mum opted for her classic look – a Breton striped top, skinny jeans and beige and white deck shoes. 

The Duchess certainly looked like she had her hands full with her newly mobile son who looked eager to move around as much as possible. George was pictured crawling, walking, squirming in his mum’s arms and even attempting to kick a soft toy football at the event.

While the average age for a baby's first step is 13 months, it can happen at any point between nine and 18 months. So at just 10 months, George seems to be proving those Australian doctors, who said who was advanced for his age, right!

When did your baby take his first steps? Let us know in the comments box below.
