How to wear denim this summer
THERE’S no time to rest about in your nappies in the 21st century, especially when you’re third in line to the throne.
So like his father before him, Prince George of Cambridge is already being readied for a trip to Australia.
The youngster’s inaugural royal tour abroad was revealed by William as he spoke about his “very good-looking” son and family plans for the future.
Speaking at the Anglesey Show, his first official engagement since George’s birth on July 22, William said the couple were hoping to make a trip Down Under to introduce the tiny future king to his family realm.
He told Max and Maxine Davies – on holiday from near Adelaide: “George is doing really well, thank you. We are all very hopeful of coming to Australia next year.”
William’s late mother, Princess Diana, broke royal tradition when she insisted on taking her nine-month-old son to Australia and New Zealand with her in 1983, on a six-week tour.
In contrast, Queen Elizabeth was forced to leave Charles and Anne, then aged five and three, for six months when she embarked on a Commonwealth tour in 1953.
William has been based on Anglesey since January 2010, working as a Search and Rescue pilot at RAF Valley.
For the past two years, he and Kate have shared an isolated rented farmhouse, relishing the privacy the island has afforded them.
But they are, reluctantly, having to leave when his posting ends early next month.
Back in London, William is expected to take up a post with the Household Cavalry.
The prince was keen to visit the Anglesey Show to say thank you to the island’s people and gave a speech which included some Welsh.
Talking about his son, William told his cheering audience: “He’s pretty loud, but of course very good-looking.”
He said: “I know that I speak for Catherine when I say that I have never known somewhere as beautiful and as welcoming as Anglesey. I know that both of us will miss it terribly.”
William also met grandmother Joan Roberts from nearby Caernarfon, who asked him how George was doing.
“Great. All we have got to do now is to get him to sleep through the night... please,” he quipped. – Daily Mail
