The New Royal Family: Celebrating the Arrival of Prince George of Cambridge

Taronga, which officially opened on 7 October 1916, is located on the shores of Sydney Harbour. The Royal family were there for the opening of the bibly exhibit. George was immediately drawn to the endearing little desert marsupial. The baby was so excited to meet his new friend which just so happens to have been named after the prince! Prince William fed George Bibly while Mum kept a solid grip on her son who appeared to find the whole thing a blast. He was later given a small stuffed Bibly toy of his own to take back home.

Prince William also tried his hand at feeding other zoo animals including a tree kangaroo and a giraffe. Apparently, neither of which were named after the royals.

The ever fashionable Duchess, spent her zoo outing in a pastel yellow eyelet dress. She had stayed covered in a beautiful, grey, Alexander McQueen’s coat at the Easter morning church services.
