We are back with a number of Bits and Bytes (our phrase for info-morsels), including news of re-stocked items the Prince has worn.

As Prince George’s first birthday approaches on July 22nd we are seeing an uptick in media coverage. Tonight (Friday, July 11) there is a 30-minute CNN special airing at 10pm EDT/7pm PDT, The Little Prince. In addition to a look at the Prince’s first year, the broadcast features an interview with Jason Bell, the photographer who took the official christening pictures; it is the first interview Mr. Bell has given since taking the historic photographs.

The Royal Tour continued as the Royals returned to Wellington from their country getaway last Tuesday. It was an especially big day for Prince George. More from Gordon Rayner at The Telegraph:

Prince George took his first major royal engagement entirely in his stride, or in his crawl, to be precise, as he joined 10 other babies at the world’s most exclusive playgroup.

The eight-month-old showed that he has become mobile a full month earlier than his father did, as he crawled around a plush carpet littered with toys.

The occasion was a playdate organized by the Royal New Zealand Plunket Society, simply called Plunket by most New Zealanders. The organization describes itself this way on its website:

We are New Zealand’s largest provider of support services for the development, health and wellbeing of children under 5. Plunket works together with families and communities, to ensure the best start for every child. Whānau āwhina – caring for families.

The Prince received his very own Plunket Bear, I think it may be bigger than he is.
