In the days leading up to Prince William and Princess Kate‘s fifth anniversary, we’re looking back at five of their sweetest-ever photos together. Today, the couple – and Prince George! – visit the zoo in Australia with adorable results.
My George, how you’ve grown!
Now, he’s a big brother with his own stamp. But back in 2014, he was a rambunctious 9-month-old who stole all the attention away from his parents.

The world got its first glimpse at Prince George’s lively personality during the family’s official visit to New Zealand and Australia in April 2014.
Greeting dignitaries after an hours-long flight, hanging out at his first public playdate – George mastered it all.
But the most adorable moment for the family of three? Their trip to Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, where George was given a stuffed bilby (which he then proceeded to throw on the ground.) Then his parents introduced him to a real-life bilby – named George!
The whole scene made for a bunch of photos that would melt even the chillest of hearts.
I mean, look at those proud, adoring smiles from his parents. It’s an undeniable sign that the world’s cutest couple was now the world’s cutest family.
And of course, those cheeks.
