Prince William and wife Kate took turns holding their son George on Easter Sunday, visiting a part of Sydney's Taronga Zoo, as part of their Royal Tour

Prince George's first official Australian engagement was a tour of Sydney's Taronga Zoo, where he spent his first Easter Sunday acquainting himself with a Bilby — Australia's version of the Easter bunny — named George. The newly-opened Bilby enclosure is also being named in the royal baby's honour.

Wearing a blue and white striped polo shirt from British childrenswear label Rachel Riley over blue shorts and navy shoes, George looked highly amused with his up-close-and-personal encounter with the rabbit-like Australian marsupial.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a vibrant primrose yellow broderie anglaise sundress, made by an unnamed designer in the capital city of the Solomon Islands, Honiara — first seen on Kate during the Cambridges' Diamond Jubilee Tour of the region in 2012 — paired with Stuart Weitzman's wedges. Prince William wore a blue and white checked shirt and navy trousers. 

Earlier in the day the family of three attended an Easter Sunday service at St Andrews Cathedral, where Kate wore a dove grey Alexander McQueen coat over a matching pencil skirt and an Alexander McQueen clutch.
