Prince George takes first steps in public

Posted: Updated:
LONDON (WHDH) - With just over a month until his first birthday, Prince George is a man on the move, keeping his mom on her toes.

The doting duchess and her son cheered Prince William on from the sidelines at a charity polo match on Sunday. But the royal baby didn't sit still for long.

After squirming out of his mom's arms, Prince George crawled, and even took a few cautious steps with a little help from Duchess Kate.

The little prince attempted to get in on the action, reaching for a polo mallet. He then moved on to a soccer ball. The tiny tot, already a World Cup fan.

It's a rare public appearance for the youngest royal. Prince George was last seen in April, making friends down under, joining the duke and duchess of Cambridge on a trip to Australia and New Zealand.

Here in the US, George’s aunt Pippa and uncle James made moves of their own, taking off on a 3,000 mile charity bike ride across the country, starting in San Diego and finishing in Annapolis, Maryland later this week.
