Duchess of Cambridge showered with Australian toys for Prince George

William and Kate were inundated with gifts for Prince George during their visit to the Queensland city of Brisbane on Saturday.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who had left their son with his nanny Maria Borrallo at Admiralty House in Sydney where they are currently based, were given hordes of Australian-themed soft toys for the little Prince.

Kate was seen with armfuls of toy kangaroos and koalas, while William took care of several boxed presents for his son, including a football bearing the future King's name and covered in maps of the Antipodean country.


At one point Kate was holding onto too many toys and flowers, causing her to drop one of the stuffed animals.

The Duchess then bent to the floor to rescue the toy, passing it to her personal assistant Rebecca Deacon to make sure it got home safely to eight-month-old George.

A reported 10,000 strong crowd braved the hot temperatures and tropical climate to greet the royal couple in Brisbane.

William and Kate had arrived in the city earlier on Saturday for a visit to RAAF Amberley to view a special aircraft and to plant a tree in the memorial garden before heading to a reception with Governor and Premier of Queensland at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

After taking time to speak to the scores of excited royal fans, the Duke and Duchess headed back to Sydney in time for their engagements in the city on Easter Sunday.
