Prince George has attended his first royal engagement along with his parents in Wellington, New Zealand.

Prince William, Kate Middleton and baby George are on a 19-day royal tour of New Zealand and Australia.

At his first royal event at Government House in Wellington, eight-month-old George met a number of babies his age.

This was a nurse and parents' group event by Plunket, which is New Zealand's largest provider of support services for the development, health and wellbeing of children under five.

Prince George was seen crawling and playing with toys along with other babies but the most adorable moment of the future heir was when he played with his mum's tresses. The royal baby seemed to have eyes only for his mother.

Dressed in a £75 blue dungaree shorts by British luxury brand Rachel Riley, the little prince could not take his eyes and hands off Kate's face and hair as she carried him and watched on him protectively during the event.

"The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society was delighted to be a part of the upcoming visit by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George," the organisation said in a statement.

The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge also got a chance to meet first time parents with their little ones at the event.

The royal couple met two Plunket nurses and 10 Plunket families, including a gay couple and their daughter on Wednesday morning.

"The parents are a spread of all the communities in New Zealand, including Maoris, Samoans, people of Chinese descent and gay couples. This is a very multi-cultural country and we wanted the duke and duchess to meet people from all backgrounds," Plunket's New Zealand president Tristine Clark said, according to BBC.

Prince William joked: "It's madness, there are babies everywhere."
