It is total cuteness overload (TCO) watching little Prince George. I am fascinated and thankful for all the coverage. I'm wondering...did he inherit his green'ish eyes like his mum? From the photos, it's hard to discern the color of his eyes. Does anyone know?

Not sure RoyalWatcher but I do think he looks a lot like Katherine's father and has Williams nose when he was little.

I don't normally post much in these threads, but a good friend in New Zealand sent us this photo.  He was part of the delegation in Aukland meeting the Royal couple.  This just makes me smile.

There was a time when one had to go out to the colonies to see naked, tattooed people. Today you don't need to travel further than Essex, I suppose.

Берёзы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

  That photo was taken in Aukland New Zealand actually.  Their RHs were on an official visit this week.

Да, я знаю:
Новозеландский тур Их Королевских Высочест герцога и герцогини Кембриджских

Perhaps I should have said "Bishop Auckland, County Durham" instead of the more stereotypical Essex.

And LOL, many of the Russian commentators here: Первый день герцога и герцогини Кембриджских в Новой Зеландии  share my sentiments of worry about the baby prince's bare feet and light clothing when all the adults in the pictures (excluding the hardy Māori) are so warmly dressed!

E.g.
Quote
мама в пальто, ребенок в бодике?
=
Mama is in a coat, the child is in a bodice / body?
Берёзы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

Which STILL has nothing to do with the country of New Zealand....

Most of New Zealand culture relates (in)directly to Britain, including the visit of this family. That is, things that are not strictly Māori. In Māori Auckland is called Tāmaki Makaurau, which I agree has no counterpart in County Durham, which BTW is the ancestral county of the Duchess's coal miner forebears.

The Cambridges' have left New Zealand bound for Australia. In the photos of their last day of engagements, they are looking tired in a few of them. Prince William especially. It must be absolutely brutal with the extreme time change, being "on" so much of the time, prepping for the next day, meetings, the baby, etc. They're doing so well and they come off as genuinely loving towards others and themselves. They are so good for each other. I don't know why I take such pleasure in these two, but I do! I think they are fabulous! :)

Prince George has brown eyes.
