One of the first pictures of Britain's Prince George and his parents, taken by his grandfather Michael Middleton, will be used on a stamp in New Zealand.

‘New Zealand Post is eager to welcome the young couple’

The first informal picture of the family, which was taken by Michael Middleton when the young prince was almost a month old and sees him held by his mother Duchess Catherine while his father Prince William stands alongside him, will feature in one of two stamps which the New Zealand Post are releasing, along with a coin, to commemorate the family's visit, which began earlier this week.

The Post said: "New Zealand Post is eager to welcome the young couple and commemorate this occasion with a special stamp issue for their April tour. New Zealanders are excited for the arrival of the young royals, with over half of New Zealand having tuned in to their wedding in 2011."

Meanwhile, the dungarees worn by the young prince on his first official engagement yesterday are already close to selling out. The smocked navy blue garment, which features a sail boat print and costs £75 (R1083), is from luxury children's brand Rachel Riley and the website has no six or 12 month sizes left in stock.

However, the website is still carrying pairs in 18 month and two years sizes. According to the brand's website, Rachel Riley "draws inspiration from the forties, fifties and sixties with fine tailoring, beautiful hand smocking, hand embroidery and vintage-inspired prints."
