Here is the wonderful royal photo of Prince George, William and Kate meeting Wally the Wombat in Sydney.
Here you can purchase your very own genuine Australian made Wally wombat plush stuffed toy.
He is identical to the one given to Prince George, only not quite as large.
“I suspect George’s first word might be Bilby, only because Koala is harder to say,” Prince William said in a speech, referring to the rabbit-like animals indigenous and iconic to Australia.
It was not a Bilby but a stuffed wombat toy, another well-known Australian animal, that Prince George was gifted by Australia’s Governor-General on Wednesday. George greeted the stuffed animal with a smile, as did his father, Prince William, who was nicknamed ‘wombat’ by his mother, Princess Diana.
Prince William spoke lovingly of his late mother, Diana, who gave her son the nickname when she, Prince William and his father, Prince Charles, traveled to Australia 31 years ago.
“My mother’s deep affection for Australia – which you were so kind to reciprocate – needs no reminder,” William said.
