A week out from their Australasian tour, a new photo of Prince William, wife Kate and son George has been released.

The eight-month-old prince is pictured in his mother's arms while Prince William holds their cocker-spaniel, Lupo, Fairfax media reports.

The photograph, looking through an open window at their Kensington Palace home, was taken by Jason Bell, the official photographer at George's christening in October.

The royal couple and their son will spend nine days in New Zealand as part of a three-week tour down under.

The tour starts in New Zealand on April 7 and ends in Australia on Anzac Day.

As part of the tour, the royal couple, minus Prince George, will visit Queenstown and Dunedin.
