If you happened to catch the swearing in of our new Prime Minister yesterday, you may have noticed something unusual.
Amid the clicks of cameras, the murmurs of journalists the words of the official proceedings, you may have noticed the distinct tones of a child.
That child was Malcolm Turnbull’s grandson Jack, and he is the Prime Minster’s first grandchild, son of his daughter, Daisy.
While his Granddad was swearing his allegiance to country, two-year-old Jack was signing the theme song from the kids’ TV show, Peg + Cat.

After the ceremony, Jack ran into his grandfathers’ arms – possibly helping him notch up an incredible rate of approval in an overnight Roy Morgan poll. The survey showed Mr Turnbull is our preferred Prime Minister for 70 per cent of those polled, compared to 24 per cent for opposition leader Bill Shorten.
