Today, Prince George undertook his first official engagement and attended a parent and baby group organized by The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society at Government House in Wellington.
The babies were all chosen from families in the Wellington region, and all were first-time parents. They were born within a week or two of George. The idea was to give the William and Kate the opportunity to introduce George to the world in a less formal way than usual and give the couple a chance to swap anecdotes about the trials and tribulations of being first-time parents.
The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society, known to all as Plunket, provides health care and support to new families.
It was founded in 1907 by pediatrician Sir Frederic Truby King. He wanted to help babies and mothers dying of malnutrition and disease, and in 1908 the influential Victoria Plunket, wife of the then Governor-General, became its patron, giving the organization her name.
Kate looked glamorous in a knee-length, black and white short-sleeved dress Paulina Midi Dress by American designer Tory Burch ($450 and sold out). The black and white colors represent the colors of New Zealand. This is a piece from the designers Resort ’14 collection and features a flattering, knee-length skirt and cinched-in waist with elegant pleats and a tactile fringing.
