George's outfit evokes memories of William and his late mother, Princess Diana, as the royal trio begin the second leg of their royal tour in Australia.

Soon after landing in the iconic Australian city, Prince William mentioned his late mother in a speech at Sydney Opera House. "My mother's deep affection for Australia – which you were so kind to reciprocate – needs no reminder," said William, 31.George, who is third in line to the throne, has captured hearts throughout the royal tour thanks to his gorgeous chubby cheeks, charismatic expressions and cute outfits.

The eight-month-old's bag, featuring the Australian animal carrying a joey, had parents rushing to order the item online at the Australian Koala Foundation website.

The Rachel Riley smocked sailboat dungarees that George wore to his first ever official engagement in Wellington, New Zealand, also proved to be a hit.

No sooner had the royal family stepped off a plane at Sydney to continue their journey to New Zealand, than his cuddly kangaroo backpack was spotted – to be sold out just hours later.
