As many of our friends across the pond will have seen, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George featured on the cover of yesterday's NY Daily News. Additional photos can be viewed here.

The newspaper reports the snaps were taken at a "London park". I've been told they were taken on Sunday, when Kate took Prince George to Bucklebury Farm Park. Before returning to London, ahead of the arrival of the royal baby, the Duchess spent much of last week with her family relaxing and enjoying quality time with her parents.
More from Us Magazine:
'Just this past weekend, Middleton visited her hometown of Bucklebury to see mother Carole and father Michael, and Prince George tagged along.
On Sunday, April 19, the Duchess took her son to Bucklebury Farm, where a local says the little tot had so much fun. "She had a protection officer with her and another woman, who didn’t look like Carole," the eyewitness tells Us. "George was in a cute jacket and was having the time of his life, if those giggles were anything to go by."'
Kate and Prince George have become incredibly fond of visiting the local farm park during their their trips to Bucklebury. Indeed, the residents of the leafy village have always been very protective of William and Kate and last November banned 'unauthorized photographs' (I believe Sunday's photograph was taken in the car park) on the premises to protect its royal visitors.

The little Prince clearly adores the outdoors like his parents. Earlier this month, he and Kate were photographed at Snettisham Park near Anmer Hall. The entire set of photos are now available to view at the OK! website.

The Duchess wore her trusty Barbour Linhope jacket - a piece she's had as far back as 2009 (with thanks to Kate & Pippa Style for the speedy ID).

Kate's maternity jeans are thought to be her Topshop Leigh Jeans, a pair she sported during her first pregnancy with Prince George. They're available in a number of washes at Topshop and Nordstrom for £46. J Crew maternity jeans have also been suggested as another possibility.
It looks like Kate also wore her Mint Velvet 'Bibi' Plimsolls.
As for Prince George, he wore a gorgeous tweed jacket with a pair of £46 Baby Boy Dungarees by Petit Bateau. His shoes appear to be the Start-Rite Flexy-Soft Air boys shoes, available for £40. (With thanks to Prince George Pieces).

It looks like Kate and George enjoyed another enjoyable outing at the park, and my hasn't George grown?
More from the Mail Online's story:
'A royal spokesman announced that the second in line to the throne had completed his latest stage of his training as a pilot with East Anglia Air Ambulance (EAAA) ‘earlier than expected’ - and would not be required to embark on the final stage until June 1.
The future king had already announced that he planned to take two weeks’ statutory paternity leave after the birth.'
The Cambridges are all now at Kensington Palace, awaiting the big arrival. There's been quite a bit of activity at the Lindo Wing too, with last minute security checks taking place. Rebecca English reported "officers were out in force, pulling lamp posts apart as they scoured the area for anything troubling".
