Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released a family photo with their son Prince George, a week ahead of their official visit to New Zealand and Australia.
The picture was taken by photographer Jason Bell, who also took the official photos for Prince George’s christening, last October.
It is the third official official release of photos of Prince George and shows him with his parents aged eight months at their home in Kensington Palace, London.
The Duke of Cambridge, the second in line to the throne, is pictured with his wife and son looking out of an open window. The smiling duchess, 32, is holding Prince George on her knee as he focuses his attention on the family pet Lupo, a black cocker spaniel pictured sitting on the duke’s lap.
The family will be in New Zealand and Australia from April 7 to 25 but it’s unclear what opportunities the public in both countries will have to glimpse the youngest royal in person.
